I am from Brazil. This is my first time to USA and also first road trip in USA!
I and my wife will be in America from mid August to mid September. We will start enjoying NYC for about 5 days, then we will go to Mahwah/NJ visit some friends and then we are planning a visit to Orlando. But as we are looking for some adventure, we chose to take the road instead of flying!
The main stops are:
- Mahwah - NJ (trip beginning)
- Orlando - FL (Disney, shopping, etc)
- Atlanta - GA (to visit the Aquarium, maybe Coca-Cola and then have a "Fried-Green-Tomato-Something")
- New York - NY (trip ending)
But we are uncertain of the best route, which we prefer scenic ones. And we want to travel in the daylight, around 500 miles/day.
We came up to this one:
day 1 - stop in Charlottesville-VA to sleep
day 2 - stop in Florence-SC to sleep
day 3 - arrive in Orlando-FL
days 4 - 6 - enjoying Orlando
day 7 - stop in Atlanta-GA to sleep
day 8 - enjoying Atlanta
day 9 - stop in Roanoke-VA
day 10 - arrive in NYC
But, as said, I don't know how good is this route, and have no idea on toll costs.
Thanks in advance!
