Can anyone tell me about their experiences visiting the James River Plantations? Which are the best to see, especially with children? What is the drive along Route 5 like?
We will be traveling down to the Outer Banks from the northern part of Virginia, and we might like to take the "scenic" route instead of the usual 64. We travel down several times a year and I thought it might be interesting to try something different. Would traveling down to route 5, taking in one plantation and then continuing on to the Outer Banks be a doable trip?
