We are traveling early September from Upstate NY - Corning to Charleston SC and are looking for suggested best routes. We know that we can travel I-95 and go around/near the beltway. But we were hoping to avoid that. Are looking to drive the first day - stay over someplace for one night - and continue on into Charleston the next day. We would like to avoid the beltway if possible and don't mind going a little (1/2 - 1 hour) out of our way to do so. If there was a place where we could stay over and also see some sights it would be great! Thanks!
