It would take over a day to get to there from EP unless you mean the Gulf Coast which is technically a marginal sea of the Atlantic.the real Atlantic starts on the east coast

El Paso is really the only one that can fit if you count the Gulf as the Atlantic. If not, there isn’t a city that cuts the criteria.

Depends on how you define a “day’s drive”. If you’re going by a day trip, no. But if you go by the literal definition of the word, you can drive from Denver to both Los Angeles (16 hrs) and Savannah (23.5 hrs) in under 24 hours.

I'd say 1000 highway miles is the realistic maximum for a "day's drive"

San Antonio might fit the bill.

According to Google maps it’s a a 15 hour drive to Jacksonville and an 18 hour drive to San Diego. Easy to do with two drivers, but tough for one.

I think it does, there isn't a real physical separation of the two
