Best route from Ct. to South Carolina trip w/ suggestions for stop-offs?

Jump to last reply

We will be driving from Fairfield County, CT to Charleston in a few weeks and I need some suggestions for the best route. Traveling with me is my mom, my 2 boys, my sister and her son.
Since my mother hates 95 and wants to avoid as much of it as possible, she wants to cross the Tappan Zee and take I 81 South which seems like a great idea. My dilemna is this; Where should we cut back over to 95? Route 270/70 in Maryland which would put us on to 495 around D.C. before hitting 95; or take 66 to 95 intersecting 95 just below Washington; Or Rte. 64 intersecting 95 in Richmond.
Will the D.C. construction affect the first option? I'm looking for the easiest route that might have the added bonus for a great place to stop-off for an hour to stretch our legs and let the kids move around a little. Does anyone know of a park, museum, cute little town, caverns, etc. that might fit the bill along one of these routes? We are hoping to make it to Rocky Mount N.C. by dark to stay over. I know I'm asking for a lot of help so I appreciate it. Thanks so much!
