  1. Default Long Island to New Bern NC

    Hello, I am driving from LI to New Bern in August with wife and 2 kids(4 & 2). I am looking for a place to stay to split up the trip down. Looking for a town or area about 7-8 hours away that has some stuff to do with the kids. Don't want to do the drive in one shot. Also is it nicer to take the coastal route down or just take 95 down? Thank you

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd take the Garden State Parkway to Cape May, then the ferry (check schedule, make reservations) to Lewes DE. US-9 and US-13 will take you across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to Norfolk, then US-17 will take you to New Bern. You could spend the night anywhere along there between Cape May and Norfolk, depending on the ferry schedule.
