Hi fellow travellers
My Dad and I are planning an East Cost road trip at the end of this month and I could use some advice. We'll start the trip in New York, spending a few days in NYC. After that we're planning on driving down the coast, finishing our trip in Miami. We're looking to combine a little bit of urban travel with scenic drives and perhaps an off-the-beaten-track detour or two. Our time frame is 3 weeks (give or take a couple of days). Some of the places we're thinking about visiting: the Hamptons (as a day-trip from NYC), Washington DC, Kitty Hawk, Beaufort (NC), Charleston, Savannah, Daytona Beach, Cape Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale and Key West. After I'd put together an approximate itinerary, there were still 5 extra days left in our three-week time frame. I was wondering if it would be worth to drive north to Boston (and also visit Harvard University campus while we're there). Or would it be best to spend those extra days some place else (maybe move down the coast a bit slower and visit some of the small towns, NC and SC islands and so on?). Or do you think it might be worth to take a detour from the coast and visit some inland attractions (e.g. Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore Estate)? Also, if there are any other places, attractions etc... on our way that you think are worth visiting, please let me know. Sorry for the long message and thanks in advance for your answers. P.S. We are aware that Summer isn't the ideal time to be visiting Florida but cannot travel any other time because of uni/work.
