We have 1 week in mid-march and we would like to do a road trip from NYC to SC. We like outdoorsy activities, like hiking, visit museum and landmarks and enjoy local food. We are thinking to make 1 night stop in Washington DC to visit a friend but no need to stay longer to visit as we have already been several times. We may also visit a friend in Clemson University in SC if it can be added to nice area to visit but not necessary. We are planning the trip from Monday with return on Saturday evening or Sunday morning at the latest.
The idea will be to have time to hike, visit vineyards, beaches, landmarks without rushing and having too much to drive everyday.
Would you have any idea of a nice itinerary? hotels to stay (nice hotel/bnb/resorts)? awesome local restaurant/shack to eat?
Thank you in advance for your feedback and recommendation.
