  1. Default Winter Honeymoon Road Trip

    Hi! We are leaving from CT and going south, (it's February). We would like to leave on Sat, and return on sat (So, 8 days). Any suggestions? How far can we get without spending the entire trip just driving?

    Default How about the NC/VA coast?

    Hello jennysee,

    Mapquest tells me Hartford, CT to Nags Head, NC is some 550 miles, which depending on what time of day one would pass NYC/Northern NJ, Philly, and Virginia's Tidewater region at the south end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel might take as little as 10-11 hours or could take a week and a half (just kidding--but surely you're aware of the great additions to urban I-95 travel times during rush hours and holiday Fridays and Mondays).

    Nags Head is roughly centered between Cape Hatteras to the south and Corolla, NC to the north and that section of the NC coast features everything between undeveloped National Seashore and high-density vacation home/condo development. I would imagine February is a CHEAP time to book a place, too. Many visitors from up your way favor Duck and Corolla in the summer, by the way. On the opposite end of the "fancy" scale is Ocracoke Island, a 45 minute free ferry ride from Hatteras Village. Visitors with a 4-wheel drive can and do drive on many sections of beach between Corolla and Ocracoke where such is allowed.

    Adding all or part of a second day each way would get you to Charleston or even Savannah, where somewhat warmer subtropical weather can be expected/hoped for. Southeastern VA and the NC coast can still be pretty cold in February. It is now, for sure, but in the forecast calls for some milder weather in about a week to 10 days from the present.

    Have you considered flying to someplace like Orlando or Miami and renting a car? The way the weather patterns are setting up right now, the only place where you can find warm weather is Florida.
