I have a trip planned with my fiance to Virginia from Las Vegas in early/mid-January to mid-February (4-6 week leeway). Here is a condensed version of our trip http://goo.gl/maps/kGKMz I am concerned about inclement weather as I've never driven in snow and will be driving a dodge neon. We are incredibly interested in the Old South, Civil War heritage sites and historic sites in general, the Colonial South, and beautiful scenery. I am hoping you guys can recommend some cool places to see (they don't have to be tourist traps :P), cheap and decent places to stay, and of course great things to eat :D
Ideally, we would like to go all the way to Williamsburg, Virginia (Jamestown, Yorktown, and Stratford Hall too) and maybe take a little excursion into the Washington D.C./Maryland area.
Would really appreciate it if you guys have any insights into the normal weather of this area at that time in terms of driving. I have been looking at climate charts for major stops and snowfall maps but it's nothing like being on the ground.
Any information/advice would be appreciated!
