Hey gang! I'm new to the site! Just signed up because I have a question on my first big road trip to the USA. My wife and I love road trips and this will be our second one to the USA, the first on being a trip to New York City last year during labor day weekend.
So here's the question:
Just wondering if you guys would have any tips or information on driving towards Louisiana from New Brunswick Canada. Me and my wife plan on driving down and visiting a couple of places along the way, most likely, Wrentham,MA (for a bit of outlet shopping, we're not big shoppers so a couple of hours here should suffice), Washington, Baltimore, Nashville and then New Orleans. We will be on the road for 10 days and we really don't have any obligations. Which means, if we make it to Nashville and love it there, we could stay and not continue on to New Orleans. That being said, do you guys think it would be plausible to drive to New Orleans and hit the biggest tourist spots in a couple of the cities in 10 days? And if it is, do you think we could drive to Myrtle Beach after New Orleans for a day and night and then head home on the I 95?
Our plans were to shop in Wrentham real quick on day one, then head to Philadelphia to check out Liberty Hall and the Liberty Bell, all the while checking out the Rocky statue (I'm a big fan). Then from there we would hit Washington for maybe a day or so to then head over to Baltimore in the evening for a Orioles game. If Washington is as amazing as we think it is, we might spend a full day there to take as much in as possible. After that we were going to head towards Nashville and spend a day there and then on to New Orleans for a day. After that if everything is not too rushed and we have time, we would head over towards Myrtle Beach for a night and day at the beach. From there, we would take the I95 back home and stop in Hoboken for a quick treat from Carlo's bakery.
I know the outline is still a bit empty. It is because we are still in the early stages of planning our trip. We very much enjoy just driving, talking and seeing new things, so we are not too worried about driving a bit longer then 10 hours a day if needed. The ideal situation would be to visit things on the road to New Orleans and some on the road back to make both ways of the trip fun!
Any help, tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
