It all really depends on timing too . We like to travel on the week days to avoid a lot , but we have found that if you have to go on a Saturday and aren't in a hurry to get to your destination, that when we travel FROM Myrtle Beach to go up north , that we have made our best time leaving at around 2-3 pm. The last time the hubby did it he made it from Myrtle to Baltimore in 7 hours.

I try to time my trips North/South (to/from NJ) so that we hit the N. VA/DC area after 8 pm.

We also live in the MC area and have found 95 to 38 which then becomes 501 to 544 to Bypass 17 to Farrow Pkwy when southbound the best route especially when school buses are on the road or on weekends. Using 544 cuts off most of the congestion on 501 in the Carolina Forrest area. Going north in the early morning hours (before school) we will take 707 (Farrow Pkwy) to 544 then 501 through Conway to 38 and northbound 95. We've tried them all but find these routes to be more driver friendly as they are all 4 lane highways.

saralvr: We too come in from NY and find the back way a good one...and a bit of a diversion with a lot less traffic. We've only had one problem and that was last month when we came down and got behind a car that would not go over 30 in a 45 zone...frustrating for the 10-12 cars behind him.

I really don't think there is a fastest route .We live in MB & we have tried every route possible .There is always road construction on 95 but you just have to allow for that .I feel that if you are not in a rush take 95 down to Route 74 get off at Elizabethtown on 701 to route 9 then take route 31 get off of that on Grissum St & that takes you into Myrtle Beach via 21st ave

Having tried all the above described routes coming and going to Market Common from the DC area, our preferred route is 95 to 38 to 501 to 17 Bypass. However, if late afternoon arrival then we will take 544 south to 17 Bypass unless it is a Friday or Saturday and we will get off 544 at Dick Pond Road or 707 and take 707 to Farrow Parkway (this allows us to miss all the traffic at 544 and 17 bypass. This provides 4 lane roadway all the way. Watch for radar in Aynor!

I take a different route. I take 17 north towards Wilmington, jump on I -40 to route 795. 795 takes you you out to I-95 around the 100 mile mark or so on I95 ( I forget exactly where). But it's only about 3 or 4 miles longer than all the other routes said here. It's a nice break from being on I95. Check it out.

Default SC Here I Come Has It Right.

We travel from the Ocean City, NJ area south to The Market Common section of town the same way. After taking the Cape May-Lewes Ferry into Delaware we make our way down the Delmarva peninsula into Norfolk then make our way to I95. It is such a relief to gear down & exit I95 at Wilson taking 117/795 to 40 through Wilmington eventually finding 17. Trip is about 3.25 hours but stress levels are greatly reduced. Looking forward to visiting in the Fall.

I come from the Raleigh-Durham area down I-95 until Exit 46, where I go south or east on NC 87 (a 4-lane highway) for about 20 miles, then turn at Tar Heel to go 9 miles on NC 131 south, then 7 miles on NC 410/131 south into Bladenboro. I follow 131 south for 9 miles until it ends on 701, which I follow through Whiteville and Tabor City into South Carolina before turning onto SC 9 and then 31 to Myrtle Beach. Apart from the hassles of having to slow down in and around the cities, there's not too much traffic, and it's a relief psychologically to get away from I-95 as soon as possible. I've tried 74 from 95 and 40-17, and neither of them work as well for me as this way.
