I would recommend seeing the empire state buidling in NYC. I love going to time square in NYC and just enjoy all the people around.

I live in New Jersey but not sure if u will make the ride but I would recommend going to the Jersey Shore not seaside but Wildwood or Cape May.

If you haven’t been yet, I would definitely say you should stop in the Detroit area, as it’s right on your route.  Here is a somewhat recent post about everything you should do there:

I’m going to Detroit! Where to stay? What to see?

Feel free to message me if you have any Michigan- specific questions.  Good luck with your planning!

If you make it to NJ, I am going to disagree with a PP and say go to Cape may! there are pods of dolphins there ( i’ll post if i can find the pics on my computer) some antique stores a light house, a WW2 tower/ bunker  ( the bunker you can not get in to anymore but the tower has pictures and a cool story to go with it). I like histoic things… lol

If you want to check out an awecosome college town near Detroit, I’d check out Ann Arbor. No real attractions, per se, but lots of great food and pretty scenery!


Also – if you’re into music Cleveland, OH has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Might be a little out fo the way, but it’s awesome!


ETA: If you’re looking for beach time, Myrtle Beach, SC is pretty good!

When you do the East Coast – drive the coast of Maine in to New Husband, stop in Ogunquit or Portland ME, Portsmouth New Husband, and if you have time, Rockport Mass.

Virginia wine country!  We have the homes of three presidents (Jefferson, Madison, Monroe), amazing wine and food, and a fantastic music scene.



If you like history, you’ll love Virginia!

When you go to Alabama, you should go to Dreamland BBQ.  They have one in Tuscaloosa.  My Darling Husband also says to go to Milo’s.  It’s fast food, but he just LOVES it!  He is from AL, and is a huge Alabama fan, so when we visit, we always make a pilgrimage to the college.  Have fun, sounds like a great trip!

I second going slowly through New England. Portsmouth New Husband is my favorite place in the country!

I live in Philly and there’s lots to do here- we have amazing restaurants! Get a cheesesteak at Pat’s Steaks, have amazing sushi at Morimoto, upscale comfort food at Jones. AND! We have awesome beer- lots of small breweries. Mussels, fries & beer at Monks is one of my favorite nights out. Oh, and lots of history- liberty bell, ben franklin tours, museums.

And if you stop in Baltimore, you should grab some pie at Dangerous Pies!

I liked the finger lakes in upstate New York. I especially liked walking the gorge at Watkins Glen State Park.

I also liked Chimney Rock in North Carolina.

Oh, and if you can, you should definitely take an airboat tour of the Everglades when you’re in Florida.
