  1. Default Roadtrip Boston - New Orleans


    Me and another Swede are going from Boston to New Orleans july 18th - july 31st. We've planned stops in Boston, Washington D.C. and New Orleans. From Boston to Washington we have three days, from Washington to New Orleans we have 5 days. Does anyone have any tips on choice of sights & routes from Boston to Washington, and then from Washington to New Orleans, within that timeframe?

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Since the straight route from Boston to Washington, DC is easily doable in a day, you'll have ample time to meander a bit on your way between the two. What kinds of things are you interested in seeing?

    You could do Boston for one day, NYC or Philadelphia for another day, and Washington, DC on the third day.

    The second leg of your trip is longer; Washington, DC to New Orleans is about 1100 mile, or two days of straight through driving. Are you interested in US history, seeing more metropolitan areas, hitting the beach? Do you want to visit the Appalachians, cruise through the woods, or stick to the cities?

    Also, what have you budgeted for this trip? What kind of lodging will you be staying in?
