My husband and I are planning our first family road trip from Montreal to Orlando. We have 2 children, 5 and 7, and are looking to make 2 stops. We were planning on taking the 87-95 straigt down with our first stop in Washington for some sight seeing and the second stop in Savannah, but after reading some posts I am a bit fearful as it seems the traffic from NY to Washington is aweful. We are expecting to travel at the end of March and have 9 days to make the trip with 2 days in Orlando (3 days would be idealistic). Can you suggest other stops or perhaps should we save the sight seeing for our return trip home? Is the trip to Washington too much for 1 days travel there for our first stop? A stop at a beach location is also an option, All advice is appreciated.
