  1. Default Orlando to Washington DC

    Greetings from the UK! Looking at some of the trips on here, ours is pretty small beer!

    We will be driving from Orlando to Washington DC departing mid-morning on the 7th October and want to be in DC at approx mid-day on the 11th October. Logic says for us do 200 miles on day 1, 2, 3 & 4 and the remainder on the final day - getting to each stop as quickly as possible so we have time to look around. Will stay at roadside motels. Not concerned if we need to mix this up at all to get the best out of the trip in terms of places to see.

    We both like history, architecure and (having seen Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) traditional American eateries!!

    Looking for suggested stop-overs - help appreciated

    Many thanks

    Steve & Sue

    Default Not Quite Evenly Spaced, But...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You may have to decide which is more important to you, maintaining your 200 mile/day pace more or less exactly, of spending the bulk of your day/evening in an interesting place. I'd opt for the later as long as there were no days where I was just spending too much time on the road. In which case, your four stops would be in Savannah GA, Charleston SC, Fayetteville NC, and Surry VA. The first two have obvious historic/architecture relevance with Orlando to Savannah being a bit long (280 miles) but Savannah to Charleston (just over 100 miles) making up for it. Fayetteville has walking tours around Heritage Square. Check with the Cumberland County Library to see if they have any materials remaining from the September Historic Architecture Tour. Surry VA is just across the James River from Jamestown and is connected to the later by free ferry.

    Many thanks for your input - most helpful.

    Anybody else have any ideas?
