Besides staying a few days in New York and Washington, we plan to rent a car and make a road trip on the east coast. Since we have no experience with US traffic, we need some help in planing a road trip, especially with determining the right size of the trip.
We have computer science background, so besides regular sights, we would really all the geeky stuff we might find on the trip :)
We would like to see the following (in the order of preference)
- New York
- Great Smoky Mountains
- Shenandoah National Park
We would also like to squeeze in all other interesting places, both historic and scenic.
- Would driving to Florida be too optimistic for a limited time we have?
- What other locations/sights/experiences would you recommend for our trip?
- How many days would you consider enough for exploring New York and Washington?
