We're driving down to Orlando at the end of April and I admittedly know nothing about what I'm getting into.
I've drafted an itinerary but I don't know if the places I'm stopping are the best/safest choices.
We've decided the best way to factor in some inevitable delays (as we have a 2 year old & a 4 month old) we will take 4 days to drive down.
I've split each leg into ~6 hours of driving:
Leg 1: Montreal to Scranton, PA
Leg 2: Scranton to Roanoke, VA
Leg 3: Roanoke to Savannah, GA
Leg 4: Savannah to Orlando, FL
The return is where I need a little more help due to budget.
Leg 1: Orlando to Charleston, SC*
Leg 2: Charleston* to Richmond, VA
Leg 3: Richmond to New York, NY
Leg 4: New York to Montreal
*We wanted to stay an extra night in NYC to have a full day to do a little sightseeing but Charleston is really eating into the budget.
#1 Did I do any good in planning the trip? If not, what should I change?
#2 If yes, where is a good substitute to stop instead of Charleston?
I'd like somewhere with a nice southern style restaurant that's not too far out of our way & a safe place for ignorant vacationers.
I initially chose Charleston as it's a vacation destination and I've heard it's a nice place but the same is said of Savannah; which is much
#3 If I can afford an hour is there anything you recommend I check out at an of the stops?
Especially Savannah as we will be leaving later in the day as it's the shortest leg of the journey.
