    Default Atlantic Coast - Road Trip may 26 - June 10

    Wife and I are coming to USA for the first time and want to travel from NYC to Florida on the road.

    Plan is to fly into JFK and stay for 2 days in NY with family and then start our road trip.

    I was thinking to do:

    NYC-> Phily -> washington -> Richmond (not sure what is the best route from her onwards to Charleston = any suggestions? with locations, cities what can we see (historic, dining, Parks etc) -> Charleston -> Jacksonville ->Orlando -> Miami ->Key West

    Looking for suggestions on
    the above gap between Richmond and Charleston
    Should we book hotels in larger cities
    How many days should we give to each place?
    Any experiences, suggestions would be welcome..

    In Virginia and NC, there is the Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park) and Blue Ridge Parkway. These are scenic drives -- you do not expect to "make time and mileage" on them, as the Skyline Drive's speed limit is 35 mph. (It took us 5 hours to drive 105 miles on that drive, but that was with lots of stops to see the views!)

    There's Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and in VA, there's also Colonial Williamsburg if you are interested in the early history of the American colonies.
