I am planning on moving to TX from MA. According to the route I have mapped, I will be mostly traveling along I-81 South. I have yet to decide when might be the best time to travel, but I am limited to two travel dates (my travel companion is flying up from TX during her school breaks to join me): 1) Thanksgiving weekend 2) Christmas weekend
From experiences... how busy are the roads during those times of year? I already expect them to be busy due to holiday... but would it turn my 30-hr trip to a three day trip? During which dates would be better to drive down?
And are there any good places to stop and visit on our way down?
