Hi, I'm new here. Have been considering a road-trip this summer (just after July 4) from Philly area to Myrtle Beach, SC. If I didn't go that far south, I'd possibly opt for Wrightsville Beach, NC instead. I've never driven long-distance before. I have ridden (not driven) from same area to Chincoteague Island a few years ago, in a car.
How long would a trip to Myrtle Beach take approximately, considering I make a few pit-stops to eat, stretch legs, etc.? I don't know what the routes would be when driving down there - appreciate any insight on that. I would consider possibly making an overnight stop - somewhere along the coast in Virginia maybe?
Would I be best off to get a GPS system, or is it really unnecessary to have one? Thanks for any insight, Greg
