  1. Default Trip north along I-77

    We're taking a trip from Charleston, SC to Cleveland, OH and are looking for recommendations for a place to stay (ideally a halfway point) in order to break up the 11hr drive. It can be scenic or tourist-y, we don't care as long as it's entertaining in some way.

    Default Sometimes the Obvious Works

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Almost exactly halfway on your journey, near the intersection of I-77 and I-81 is the town of Wytheville, VA. Near the Blue Ridge and Jefferson National Forest, it certainly qualifies as scenic. With a size of around 8,000 people, you could probably explore most of it on foot. And besides, it was home to a number of UFO sightings in the 80s and 90s, so keep your eyes open.

    Default Try Mayberry

    Well, actually it's Mt. Airy, NC, where Andy Griffith grew up.

    I'd suggest the Mayberry Motor Lodge to stay, but there are other motels as well.

    Definitely eat at the Snappy Lunch downtown and I strongly suggest the famous pork sandwich. Just make sure you're there before 1:30 pm, when the place closes.

    All the Mayberry you could ever want.

    I'd suggest getting gas around Wytheville, Virginia, which is usually some of the cheapest. Gas in West Virginia is very expensive.
