    Default It Really is a Three Day Drive

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I'm glad to see that you're planning on devoting several days to your drive this time. Especially with children, this is a drive that should be savored at a leisurely pace rather than rushed through with everyone shut up tight in the car, like 'Spam in the can', for hours and hours on end. You really have three choices for routes, The obvious one is just I-95 all the way down with major attractions being the historic cities of the northeast (New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and Richmond), some Revolutionary and Civil War battlefields through the Carolinas, and coastline in Georgia and Florida. The two other possible routes are described here.

    If you take three days for the drive, then overnights would be roughly:
    1) South of D.C. (I-95) {Front Royal, VA (Appalachian route); Salisbury, MD (Coastal route)}
    2) Savannah {Atlanta; Savannah}

    If you take four days, then expect stops around:
    1) Elkton, MD {Carlisle, PA; Smyrna, DE}
    2) Benson, NC {Kingsport, TN; Beaufort, NC}
    3) Brunswick, GA {Tifton, GA; Brunswick, GA}

    As for places to eat, you can do so much better than exit ramp fast food by just driving into any large town or small city and just looking (or asking!) for where the locals eat. You'll get a chance to sample some local cuisine rather than frozen-thawed-fried burgers and you'll get a chance to see some things and hear some dialects other than what you would get at home.
