Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but already did a road trip in the US last year (Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite Park, San Francisco, PCH, Los Angeles - and some cities in between) with my girlfriend and another couple.
For our honeymoon, we are planning on getting a flight to NY, stay there for 3-4 days, and then rent a car and travel to Miami where we'll catch a 7-day cruise.
Arrive in NY on late afternoon on June 29, 2009
Cruise: July 11, 2009
That means that we can leave NY on late July 02 or early July 03 which will give us 8-9 days to arrive in Miami.
We are estimating around 1500 miles between NY and Miami or around 24 hours of total driving time according to Google Maps.
Do you guys think this might be doable given the time frame?
Looking at Google maps, we noted down the following cities where we might stay and/or visit (but we are open to suggestions - actually this is where we are going to need more help, specially what cities and places to visit):
Philadelphia, Newark, Baltimore, Washington DC, Richmond, Virginia Beach, Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami. We already briefly visited Miami, Cape Canaveral and Orlando (did the theme parks) on a previous trip so we'll probably take 1-2 days after the cruise ends to get to know Miami a little better (Everglades, Keys and other nearby locations).
Any comments/suggestions would be very much appreciated!
