We will be driving from Washington DC to Charleston in July. We've allowed time for an overnight stay on the way down but are looking for a good place to stop.
I've seen on other forums a number of suggestions, some just off the I95 and some a little bit more of a detour. Given that we have 2 days to make the trip, we don;t mind going 'the long way around' if there's something worth seeing.
Ideally we'd like to split the driving equally, e.g. 4 hours one day and 4 hours the next. We're also keen to stop along the way at anywhere else that looks interesting.
I've seen others suggest Fredericksburg, Fayetteville, Wilmington and Rayleigh/Durham etc but thought I would put a post here to see what others thought.
After Charleston we'll be driving to Savannah, which I realise is only a couple of hours, but if there's anything worth stopping at on the way to take a look at, suggestiosn welcome!
