    Wouldn't we all!

    You do not say when this trip will take place or how long you have for the trip, and whether it is a one way or return trip. Neither have you told us anything about your interests, and what sort of things would interest you. This information is vital for members to give relevant advice.

    Something to add here -- US-17 is on the eastern side of the US, but it is hardly "coastal". It's more inland, going through small towns, swampy bogs. There are a few miles where it is close to the coast, such as around Wilmington NC. My husband and I stayed one night in Myrtle Beach SC, then the following night in Chesapeake, VA, using US-17 to travel through NC. The route went inland for awhile north of Myrtle Beach, went closer to the coast around Wilmington, then back inland.

    As far as inexpensive places to stay -- many of the smaller towns on US-17 have mom-and-pop motels. You may be able to research some of the places online to find out pricing. I would say that you might not want to be traveling on a weekend, as staying in a college or beach town will be more expensive then. (Wilmington comes to mind.)

    But truly, to give you more information, we'd need to know the kinds of things you're looking for and how long you are thinking for the trip.
