  1. Default east coast road trip

    hello! my boyfriend and i are looking for advice on an upcoming trip.

    last summer, we drove from los angeles (where he grew up) to new hampshire (where i grew up). we spent most of the cross-country trip west of chicago. (after chicago we went to toronto, and then straight to NH).

    we're both 22 and are currently living in boston. we have about 1 1/2 weeks this summer to explore the east. we like camping and hiking and being outside; we also like museums and cities. we're hoping to go south, since we've both seen quite a bit of new england, and have thought about setting west virginia as our final destination, but we can't really make up our minds.

    our only real constraints are that we have 1 1/2 weeks, and we'd like to camp for at least part of the trip to save some money.

    is there anything we absolutely shouldn't go another year without seeing? anywhere that you would highly recommend traveling to? we're a bit overwhelmed by the possibilities! any advice or input is much appreciated!!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    In ten days you can cover quite a bit of ground.

    Here's a quick rundown of some of the major cities within your reach:
    New York
    Washington, DC
    Virginia Beach

    And here's a quick rundown of some great outdoor destinations:
    Shenandoah Valley & Blue Ridge Mountains - two of my favorites
    Cape Hatteras

    You could take a couple of days to meander down to D.C., spend a day or two there, head West into the Shenandoah, get in some hiking in that area over a couple of days. Then, South along the Blue Ridge and West into West Virginia.

    Where in WV did you have in mind?
