Hello everybody, I was thinking about planning a road trip for next summer and would like some feedback if possible. The trip i am planning will be 9 days from Orlando Florida to Washington DC. My goals on this trip are to go to six flags in Marietta Georgia, go on a hot air ballon ride in the Carolina's or Virginia while driving along Blue Ridge Mountain and spend about two full days in D.C. Once i am done i would like to head back to Miami.
Orlando --> Atlanta/Marietta (400-500 miles) just stop to eat and relax
Six Flags and spending the night in Marietta
Marietta GA --> Blue Ridge somewhere in NC (about 270)
take a break
NC --> Virgina going through Blue RIdge still
hot air ballon this day
VA to DC
stay in DC
Stay in DC
Check out of DC and start heading back home to Miami
Drive with rest stops and spend night at hotel
Drive --> JFK space center --> Miami at night
THis is the little agenda i have thought up so far. I had the following questions
1. Does anyone recommend anywhere to hot air ballon ride
2. Does it seem like i will be driving to much and not rest enough
3. Does anyone suggest any stops, i am not planning on camping or getting two hands on, i just plan on taking a scenic route to get to my places?
4. Does this seem like enough time?
