  1. Default new jersey to miami

    hey everyone,

    me and 3 friends are planning a 7-8 day road trip starting in morristown new jersey to Miami and back.

    our plan is that on the way there wed make shorter drives with 3-4 stops and on the way back to do the whole thing in 1 shot.

    thing is when we are in the northeast there are plenty of cool places to stop (Philly d.c. etc.) and once we get to Florida we know where to go, but where do we go in between all along the i-95? (preferably staying on course).

    thanks a lot in advance

    Default Fine Right Up to the End

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    At just about 1300 miles, it's a good idea to take it easy on the way down to see some things. There are, in fact, some very nice places to stop every few hours that won't take you that far off the highway. But the fact is that trying to do this in one fell swoop on the way back is just a bad idea. To begin with, you'll all be tired from your vacation, then none of you will get any decent sleep during the drive, certainly not to the point where anyone is going to be in any shape to be driving at the end of this 24 hour marathon. And leaving all the driving to the end means that you will have already used up all your margin for error and will feel compelled to continue on even if you did realize you didn't have the stamina to finish the trip. Leave yourself at least two days for the return drive - even that will be pushing it.
