    Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    One way to find places to stop, is to check good maps which have attractions and scenic routes markied on them.

Those are your essential tool in any RoadTrip planning process. Start by marking all the places you know you want to visit. Then connect the dots. Then look for more places of interest and scenic routes along the lines connecting the dots. Repeat until you've got as many sites and roads as you think you want.
    AAA is a great source for maps, or you may prefer a road atlas such as Rand McNally. May as well get them to plan, you are going to need good maps when on the road.

    Check out the map program and attractions on this site, via the links above. Of course speaking to folk wherever you stop will likely give you more up to date and relevant information.

    As you examine your possible routes, you should find that the shortest route is around Toledo and then east on I-90 to Cleveland, south on I-77 (north! on I-81 where they're co-aligned) to Mount Airy NC, east on US-52/I-40 to Greensboro, south on I-73 to Ellerbe NC, east on US-74 and south on I-95 to Dillon SC and finally south on US-501 into Myrtle Beach. Rather than send you out of your way to find attractions, I'd urge you to just make the most of what's along that route including, for starters, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio Amish country, New River Gorge National River, Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, Mount Airy (the real-life Mayberry), and South of the Border (the quintessential tourist trap).
