Taking the long way around - D.C. to Williamsburg via Delmarva

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip the third week of October to Washington D.C. and Williamsburg. I've always wanted to drive across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel so we are considering leaving D.C and going across to the Delmarva Peninsula and then crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and on up to Williamsburg.

How is this drive? Scenic? Lots to do? I was also considering adding a stop at Rehoboth Beach. Are things still open there at that time of year or is it more of a close down after Labor Day type of destination? Mapping tells me that it's about a 6 hour drive directly or about 7.5 hours with the detour to Rehoboth Beach. We don't mind that kind of drive in a day but if there is a lot to stop and look at perhaps we might want to stop somewhere for the night. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for any suggestions!
