  1. Default Montreal to Fort Lauderdale - Xmas 2009

    My family (including 2 boys aged 13 and 10) will be driving down to Fort Lauderdale, Florida from Montreal and back again for the Xmas holidays. We have a total of 15 days, of which we want to spend at least 8 days lying on the beach in Florida! We want to stop on the way at Washington DC and spend the day sightseeing and the night at a motel there. Aside from that, can anybody recommend additional stops that would be interesting?

    Default All Your Days Are Spoken For

    Bienvenue sur les forums de RoadTrip Amérique. Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    It's going to take 3 full days to drive each way between Montréal and Fort Lauderdale. Add in 1 day for sightseeing in Washington and 8 days at your destination and all 15 days that you have available are used up. So, unfortunately, you'll pretty much have to stick to the most efficient Interstate route, I-87 to New York and then I-95 to Fort Lauderdale, and not make any major stops along the way. That does not mean you shouldn't make any stops. Indeed for safety and sanity you should stop 2-3 times a day. It's just that they should be of the briefer time out variety near the highway.
