We are planning a road trip from Toronto to North Myrtle Beach this August. I am hoping I can get some help in planning this trip.
We, Dad, Mom, and two kids (9 and 5) will leave Toronto on Thursday Aug 9th and hope to be in Myrtle Beach by Saturday Aug 11th. We would prefer to leave by 3:00 pm (after work). However, if we have to, we will leave early in the morning and take that day as vacation. We would like to be in Myrtle Beach by about 5pm, but no later than 9pm.
We will stay in Myrtle Beach for two weeks and will start our return journey on Saturday Aug 24th around noon (or can be on the road by 8am). We would like to be back home in Toronto by Monday night.
We would love to visit following sites on either our way their or back:
Blue Ridge Parkway
Not sure if we would have time to add anything else on this list, but suggestions are welcome. Kids enjoy interactive museums and factory tours.
It would be ideal to drive few hours in the morning (starting 7am or so) and then stopping for few hours by 11am and doing some sightseeing and then getting back on the road by 4pm and stopping by 9pm for the night.
I would also appreciate suggestions for day trips from Myrtle Beach. Since we will be there for two weeks, It would be nice to take couple of day trips away from the beach. I was thinking Charleston, but maybe too far for a day trip?
