At the end of July my boyfriend and I are driving down to Florida from NJ.
I haven't visited any of the states really and neither has he. We want to see nice scenery's and try new food or free activities. What states would you recommend stopping at and sights to look at? We really want to enjoy the trip and not do a straight shot down to Florida. Does anyone know of any resting stops on the way down to sleep at? Hotels are just very expensive, are there any camp out spots anyone knows of?
I have gone on google maps and saw that the trip will take about 18 hours but they of course don't include any rest stops or traffic, so I know of course it will be more. Yet from google maps I can't see where I should stop or if there are any routes I should avoid.
If anyone has any advice please let me know!
