Family of four - two teen girls included - planning an 18 day or so trip in July 13 from Orlando to New York and back. We originally wanted to fly in to NY (Newark) but find that flights into Orlando, and car hire from there, is cheaper. (I'd be grateful to know what are the benefits or disadvantages of doing it this way.)
Meantime, we plan to land in Orlando and next day head towards the Blue Ridge mountains, and head up towards Shenandoah, Gettysburg, to New York where we intend to spend 3 nights and do the headline sights.
Driving back, we will visit Washington, and head down towards Savannah, before landing in Orlando for our last 5 nights (or so) in the sun and on the rides.
Any comments gratefully received, espcially on places to visit. I note that this route isn't exactly a favourite with many people, but it seems to strike a chord with us.
I want to drive a maximum of 2,500 miles,
Last year we had a fantastic 18 days round CA, NV and AZ, enhanced by advice from this forum. For which, thankyou.
Best wishes to all.
