We are recently retired and are planning a road trip to see my sister in Arkansas from the Eastern Shore. We have not done a road trip of this type before and I'm looking for insight.
How does everyone plan where to stop along a route? My DH doesn't LOVE driving all day due to some medical issues, so I'm thinking I want to split this 1200 mile/18 hour trip into a 3 night trip, stopping after driving 5 hours daily (allowing time to explore along the way).
I was hoping there was a way to plug in the route and then have recommendations of stops at 5 hour intervals.
Or is the only option pulling up a map and route/directions and manually putting in the calculations to see which cities/towns will fit those timeframes? Also will be staying at dog friendly hotels along the way.
