Road Trip East Coast USA

Im travelling with my partner over to the states for 2 weeks of adventure down the eat coast of america. I have 2 nights in new york and then on september the 11th we pick our rental care up and head south through New York State, New Jersey, Pennsylvannia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and finally fnishing in florida with a view to boarding our flight in miami. We are open to any ideas of places to visit and also very flexible as we only have a hotel for the first 2 nights so the rest of the journey will be motels or hotels which we discover on our travels. Does anyone have any suggestions on places to visit, we are open to all ideas. Thanks.

Gazz

what do you like to do? How many stops are you planning?

etc, etc. There are literally dozens of worthwhile places and really don't know where to start. Heck, for some people 2 weeks in disney would be perfect. Others spend an entire week in DC. Do you just want to drive through all these states or actually experience some part of the US? It's your trip so no right or wrong answer, just don't know what you expect unless it is to just throw out names.

well i have been to new york 3 times before, but its a new experience for the girlfriend, and have also spent 2 weeks before in florida, so to dont plan on staying around disney parks for two weeks, just maybe for 2 or 3 days and then head to miami for last night or two, it basically gives us about 8 days to do what we please so something nice along the coast would be cool and also a visit to one of your national parks and maybe a stop over there. Dont just want to do typical tourist things, would love to get a bit more involved in the "real usa" if get what i mean.

The following cities have great historic charm and colonial-era buildings:

Annapolis, Maryland

Williamsburg and Jamestown, Virginia - possibly the best reconstructed historical town in the world, full of costumed re-enactors

Charleston, south carolina

Savannah, Georgia - beautiful old houses on tree-lined streets

Other favorite places

Charlottesville, Virginia - rated on many lists as one of the best cities in USA to live in, or retire to

Luray Caverns, in Virginia - the best of several cave tours in Virginia

Asheville and Boone, North Carolina - full of artists and bohemians, and Appalachian crafts and culture

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - has over 100 golf courses, many retirees as well as beaches and night-life

Wilmington, North Carolina
