Planning a road trip from NoVa to Charleston for the Memorial day weekend. Will start Friday night and catch a friend at Durham. Will drive together to Myrtle Beach and then Charleston. I enjoy scenery, nature, people watching. With a network of roads on east coast, not sure which road to take as I look on the Map. Obviously i-95 is the road, but I generally go on US routes to enjoy small towns. Wondering if US 1 is full of traffic lights. Also, this being the busiest weekend and hell lot of traffic, don't want to risk with experimenting routes.
Anyone suggestion on scenic routes from DC - Durham - Myrtle Beach - Charleston - Durham - DC ? US route numbers that could be enjoyable and less traffic will also be helpful. As of now planning 1/501/52 in Durham - Charleston routes. But again looks like there are so many possibilities.
