  1. Default Suggestion for 1-day stop i-95 trip S. FL to Washington DC

    This is my first time on this forum so hopefully I posting this in the correct place.
    My family and I are undertaking our annual trip from Sarasota, FL to Washington D.C. We are looking for a good day stop about half-way through that is not too far off I-95.
    My mom and I like interesting museums, artsy things and historical stops, my brothers are looking for a good beach. We will also have a small dog with us.
    We have done St. Augustine and Savannah and we are hoping to save Charleston for another trip.
    One year someone told us to stop off in New Bern, N.C. which is a pretty cute little town, very pretty, no chains, good restaurants, the place seemed trapped in 1950 in a good way. We were hoping to find something equally as charming with good food and reasonably priced lodging for 4 people and are open to suggestions!

    Default For a Few Miles More

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    While not directly on I-95, a visit to Charleston (SC) would only require about an extra hour's drive in your two day's of driving, is conveniently halfway between your departure and destination cities, and most importantly has plenty to keep people of very diverse interests intrigued for considerably longer than a day. But if you must save it for another time, Columbia and Myrtle Beach would be worth looking into (for different reasons).

    If you do this trip every year, have you considered taking something inland that's nowhere near I-95 and its traffic - and taking 3 days? Or taking some of the coast roads?

    If I were doing this every year, I'd be looking for variety and taking my time instead of just watching the same old I-95 scenery out the window.
