Road Trip: Philadelphia to Savannah, through Eastern MD/VA/NC

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites,

Well, summertime is almost here, and for me that means...road trip! My significant other and I have decided to hop in the car and do the fairly easy 12-hour drive from Philly to Savannah at the end of June.

The first day we want to do about 7 hours down to Edenton, NC via the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia (I much prefer this over 95, ugh). We'll stay there for the night/some of the morning.

The second day...it seems like we have no choice other than 95 straight shot down to Savannah.

My questions are these: As I would prefer the vacation to be less "road" and more "trip," if anyone knows of a decent alternate route through eastern NC/SC to Savannah, I would be very interested! Also - thoughts on Edenton as the overnight stop? People on the board have said it's cute, small, historic, though we're very open to any other suggestions at the 6/7 hour mark.
Finally, any thoughts on neat places to check out along Route 13 (MD/VA), Route 17 (NC), or (sigh) I-95 to Savannah would be greatly appreciated.

We are very excited to see Savannah. The posts on this board have been so helpful, and we have a delightful itinerary semi-planned out for the 4 or so days we'll be there. (And after living in 'Bama for 5 years, I'm excited to get back to my southern favorites of grits and hush puppies!)

Anways, that's it for me. Thanks, and take care :)
