I'm new to this forum/site, and my lap top is situated on top of a AAA map of the southern states. I've enjoyed reading many of the posts already, but this one seems to apply to my trip next year. We just booked our condo in Kissimmee for July 11, 2015 and are planning on driving down with our four children (at travel time they will be 6,8,10, 12) from just north of Boston.
A few years back we did the drive to Williamsburg via Cape May, Delmarva and CBB- and the kids still talk about it. So, we'd like to incorporate that into our trip thinking we'd stay a night in Wildwoods or Cape May. (we camped last time- and won't do that again! but we may stash an air mattress or two for hotel floors). And I've read the posts that suggest this route and then onto 95- which sounds great. But, then what???????? Where do you stay that second night? I really can't see an overnight at South of the Border.... :)
And then, would it make sense to spend a third night near Jekyll Island or Cumberland Island and then have a quick ride into our 'real' destination?
And, then we'd like to take the westerly route back. My husband has only hiked it, so we're not going his way..... So we really need some direction/suggestions on a two or three night trip back. Time isn't a big deal, we're both school employees, but cost is. (many mouths to feed and heads to rest) :)
So, I'll keep following and take any tips! Thanks! (please let me know if I should start my own thread?)
