I just recently moved down to Orlando, FL for the summer. I've been here enough and I decided to go back to my hometown in CT. But to make sure the trip wasn't a complete waste, I'm having my friend fly down here and drive back up with me for a week or more to get a awesome road trip in before the summer ends. Here's the thing: we arent that sure of where stop on the way up! we know we want to get a mixture of beaches, super trendy popular spots, and also more quite and natural settings. PLEASE, anyone who has done the trip before or maybe knows of any great trip stop ideas, let me know!

I'd say just do I-95 all the way. That's got plenty of beaches, many cities on the way....plus it takes you right along the journey you've been describing. if this were the west coast I'd say either do U.S. 101 or I-5. Just look it up.

Stop in Savannah, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, cut over at some point and drive the Outer Banks, Virginia Beach, take 13 North and go over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel , continue to Ocean City, north and take the Cape May/Lewis Ferry into NJ (Cape May), Wildwood, AC (if you're so inclined), then the GS Parkway north into NYC. You can take it from there since you're from CT. sounds like a great trip.

I would suggest taking I-95 North to Savannah, then cut across to Beaufort, SC and go up through Charleston and Myrtle Beach. Go back up to I-95 North and head east on Route 64 to the Outer Banks. Head north on 158 to the Hampton Roads area and check out Virginia Beach and Portsmouth/Norfolk.

If you want to visit urban areas, take Route 64 West (or maybe North) from Hampton Roads and pick up 95 North, passing through DC, Baltimore and Philly.

For a quieter ride near the coastal areas, go North from Hampton Roads using the Chesapeake Bay bridge/tunnel. Work your way across to Ocean City, MD using Routes 113 and 50, and take the Coastal Highway up along the MD and DE coast to Rehoboth Beach. Then you can take the Cape May/Lewes Ferry across to Cape May, NJ. Then you can perhaps hit up Atlantic City on your way up the Garden State Parkway on the way home.
