My boyfriend and I are hoping to do a roadtrip from DC to Florida (return) just after Thanksgiving, to check out Disneyworld and the Space Center.
Being from Sydney Australia, any help as to what the weather conditions will be like would be great (raining, snowing, etc), and any suggestions as to where to stop off along the way (there and back) would be even better (ie. attractions, historical sites, accommodation,etc). For the drive to Florida, we would probably like to drive along the coast and on the way back, more inland.
We should have just over a week. To give you an idea of our driving experience, we consider a 14 hour drive nothing. A walk in the park!!
Be sure to spend some time along North Carolina's Outer Banks! It'll be after the normal season, and lots of businesses will be closed for the winter so you'll have it all to yourself. The highway runs down a strand of sand between the ocean and the sound, the beaches are great, and it's a nice place for a romantic getaway, if you're interested in that.
I was there last year in December, and the weather was between mild and cold, and at times windy and rainy. It snows there as well, but it didn't while I was there. Bob
I consider this drive a walk in the park as well. I live right outside of DC and have drivin to Florida (Disney World/tampa/Ft. Lauderdale/Miami/the keys) numerous times. To be frank...the drive is quite boring unless you do stop along the way. Georgia is one of my favorite states and has BEAUTIFUL plantations and you should definetly check them out. Very historical and facinating. You also might want to check out Colonial Wiliamsburg Virginia. There is a great amusement park (Busch Gardens) and the area is rich in history.
