hello, everyone. :)
i live in virginia and am driving up to long island next weekend to pick up my step-sister to bring her back down here for the summer. we're leaving ny on a friday morning, and we want to be back by in hampton roads saturday evening. any suggestions for avoiding the turnpike?
i'm thinking jersey shore, but i don't want to spend the whole time on the garden state pkwy either. are there beach roads enough to drive from sandy hook or long beach all the way down to cape may?
what are some must-not-miss places along the way? we may spend the night in alantic city (she just turned 21 and has never been there), but i am up for even hour-long detours if the sights and sounds are worth it.
