7 Day Road Trip down Southeast Coast

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone!
I'm looking for suggestions on a 7-8 day road trip that my husband and I are taking with my parents. We had originally planned a family vacation in Disney World, but due to an unexpected injury, my grandparents had to cancel at the last minute. We decided to just take a (quasi) impromptu trip down the coast. My husband and I are boarding a cruise in Fort Lauderdale on May 26th so our plan is to end the trip with my parents there and they will fly back to Kentucky and we will board our ship and leave our car in long term parking.
I've agreed to not plan every single detail (I'm a horribly chronic planner and this is killing me!) but I would still like to have a route in mind and perhaps some "must-sees" that we shouldn't miss.
Currently we are considering the following route, but I feel like I may be over extending us a bit. Any suggestions are extremely welcome and appreciated:

Leave Mayfield, KY on 5/17
Head towards The Outer Banks
From the Outer Banks, start heading down the coast stopping at:
Myrtle Beach
Hilton Head
Tybee Island
St. Augustine
While slowly making our way to Fort Lauderdale

I am aware that hitting all those points may not be feasible, but that's where you guys come in! :)

I have considered purcashing a Road Trip USA book on Amazon and just winging it as well.

What are your thoughts?
