Road Trip?

Message: My boyfriend and I are looking into traveling down the east coast from ny, down to florida. I have a few questions. So far we have pin pointed to go to Myrle beach and virginia beach, where else should we visit. And also, how do we go about this? What is the difference between an RV and a motorhome. We would like to rent one. I am trying to do some research to put a budget together before we can decide if we can do this. Has anyone done something like this before? With the prices of gas these days, i am thinking booking a trip to Jamaica would be cheaper! (and less aggrevating) If anyone has any advice, please post here, or email me at [email protected]

I did this trip this past winter not as a roadtrip per se but as a way to get from one place to another by car.

I think an rv and a motor home are the same. Found this website with info that might help. I'm not endorsing the site as I have no experience doing this.

I agree it won't be a cheap vacation with the cost of gas but you'll get to see a lot. Time of year can make a difference too. Without knowing your interests it's hard to say where to stop. I'd add Savannah and Charleston to your list of stops.

PS if you're serious about this consider joining the AAA. They have lots of info, can provide a trip route, books on where to stay and what to see etc.

I have been looking into a trip like this myself. There are small self-contained units that are fully equipped and slightly larger than vans. Look into available rentals after Labor Day (these seem to rent quickly). I would recommend taking I95south to Delaware and then head SE on Rte. 13 to Rte 17.I would recommend that you consider "borrowing" the itineraries from the American Cruise Lines to be sure that you hit all of the neat, small towns along the eastern seaboard.
The only addition that I would recommend is 1/2 day at Colonial Williamsburg which has plenty of nearby campgrounds

From Virginia Beach consider the Outer Bznks of NC as the next stop. From there you can go to Myrtle Beach.
