East Coast road trip from Boston to Washington DC

Jump to last reply

My husband, 14 year old son and 11 year old daughter and I are planning to be in Boston on August 16.From there we want to see some East coast highlights. We need to rent a car to drive to Cape cod (mid-week, thankfully). Do you have any suggestions as to which town to stay in? After that, I thought Newport, RI would be nice. Should we just cruise through it for the day or spend a night there? We definitely need to break up the long car ride after Newport and I have no idea where to stop before we get to Philadelphia. Does anyone know of any interesting stops along that route? Do we need more than one full day in Philadelphia? Also, we are trying to squeeze in Gettysburg before ending up in DC. But if you have any preferences for Gettysburg vs. Williamsburg for the ages of my kids, I would be interested in hearing that! I would actually love to do both!

Boston - 4 nights ( with side trips to NBA Hall of Fame and Concord/Lexington, as time allows). Rent car.
Cape Cod - 3 nights. Drive to Newport.
Newport, RI - Stay overnight or just drive through?? Drive toward Philadelphia.
Spend one night in a town along the route that might be interesting, maybe in Connecticut? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Philadelphia - 2 nights. Is one full day enough here?
Gettysburg - 1 night
Washington DC - 4 nights. Maybe head to Williamsburg for the day or overnight??

Thank you for any suggestions you can make about the itinerary!
