coming from myrtle beach to charlottesville, va

would greensboro be a reasonable stopover? We are heading back to New Jersey and want to avoid I-95 as much as possible in the bad areas. I would like to go back to Charlottesville, va but not sure if it would be a good idea to stopover in Greensboro or could we make it in one shot.

It's about 180 miles and about 3 hours from Greensboro to Charlottesville.

Just a little tid bit about that trip. I'm sure you will be traveling on Route 29 from Greensboro to Charlottesville but be aware that it's 55 mph the majority of the way except for a couple stretches of 60 or 65 in NC and also around Lynchburg. You will also have to go through a couple of smaller towns which have stop lights on 29 which can be a hastle if you are just trying to go straight there. That's why it will take you at least 3 hours for this trip. If time is an issue you might just want to stick with the interstate.

Greensboro is definitely a reasonable stopover. I guess it's about halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charlottesville. In all honesty, you could probably make the trip in one shot, but if you have kids that may be difficult.

My father lives in Easton, PA and takes 81 through Virginia to get where I live near Winston-Salem. I know 81 may be a little out of your way, but it might be worth it for an easier drive.
