We are planning to do a road trip with our dog for 10 days in Dec 2012 (during Christmas Week). She is a beach dog and is getting gloomy in the winter months in NYC :-s
We are not interested in specific destinations but are looking forward to a a scenic journey along the coast where it's warm and having a good time with our dog i.e staying at dog friendly motels, taking her to restaurants which are open air where dogs are allowed, running on the beach playing ball with her, drinking, etc so we thought doing a road trip down the coast of Florida would make the most sense, right? Especially since we have never been to Florida at all.
We'd like to zip past the the cold zones as soon as possible during the first leg of the drive so we can spend more time in different Beach/Port destinations like Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, etc and drive BACK to NYC. What is the best way to do this trip over 10 days and BACK without being too exhausted but spending as much time in 2-3 amazing warm locations.
Thanks so much for all your help guys!
