I am thinking about taking a road trip in February or very early March from New York to Florida. (If very late Feburary or early March, I would be ending with a Yankees spring-training game.) I might even consider starting at the very beginning in Maine. I've been trying to get information about Route 1, but there I can't seem to find any maps or information about the entire route. There seems to be info on a state-by-state basis only.

1. Is this a worthwhile route to take? If not, what might be a more interesting/viable route? 2. Are there maps available of the entire route, and/or books about the route as it can be traveled today?
