It's been a while since I've had a vacation and now that i'm planning it, of course I come back to you guys on TRIP ADVSIOR. How i've missed you.
I plan on visiting Wililamsburg, VA. I have a week Off in May and plan on driving down to VA. Since it will be either 3 or 4 of us I thought renting a car would be best. I am wondering how long will it take to drive down there and what's the best route.
Williamsburg was chosen since its far but not too far that it cant all be done within a week. I know it might take about a day or 8 hours driving each way. We plan on visiting BUSCH GARDENS, the historical sites and anywhere else you guys recommend since you are awesome!
I also thought about taking the amtrak down to VA williamsburg and then renting car down there. Cost seems to run at 761 total for the week. 4 round trip tickets at 496 and265 for full size rental (hoping i get nissan altima)
any suggestions on sites, road pit stops or sites to see. Scenic route option coming back would be great also. I think i'll be doing all the driving since my friends are either just getting their license (only with a permit) and haven't driven at all in YEARS. I don't want to stretch msyelf too much and get all cranky and start off my vacation wrong. The further I've even DRIVEN was from NYC to Berkshires in MA. No pit stops, no food....tired...SUPER CRANKY.
We are all young in our late teens to late 20's and want to just spend some time away from NYC. Is Viriginia Beach a possibility for a one day outing? Is there any other interesting pointes to stop and see along the way or something we MUST see at Williamsburg?
thanks ahead for all the replies.
