Can someone suggest some places worth stopping for a road trip form VA to Florida (I-95), that are not very far off the highway?

A few I can recall off hand:

JR's on exit 97, nice cigar selection

On that same exit is a outlet center with a nike, polo, etc (truthfully if you have ever been to Potomac MIlls, you have been here. Same outlet stuff)

South of the Border a little further down, it can be kind of sleazy and touristy, but if you have never been, it is worth just stopping by and getting some trinkets

If you have time, hit I-20 off 95 and slide through Atlanta, or maybe on the way back, just take I-85 and you can check the sites that way as well

Drive safe!

I was going to suggest South of the Border. Plan a potty stop around it. Got go anyway right. It is campy, tourist and very tacky...but after seeing the signs for a 100 miles you will want to know what it is all about.

St. Augustine, FL is a neat little town.
