Eastern US road trip

Hi all, the days are getting longer and spring seems just around the corner. Especially for us dealing with snow and cold!
We are planning a trip with the RV for the month of April. Looking at driving through the eastern United States. Starting from Ottawa, Canada and going as far south as Georgia and then a loop back. Would be going through New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia ..........want to see Washington DC and any other great spots along the way. We would drive maybe 4 or 5 hours a day max.
Looking for suggestions on routes, places to see and places to park. Please feel free to make any suggestions and recommendations.

In the Washington DC area the best and most convenient place to stay is Cherry Hill RV Park, College Park, Maryland. The park is just a few blocks from the metro station for trips into DC. The Metro is the best way to get around in DC, do not think about driving in yourself the traffic is unreal and there is no place to park.

When traveling in the DC - Baltimore area DO NOT take I-95 through the Baltimore tunnels. Those tunnels are propane restricted and they WILL catch you and write you a VERY VERY expensive reminder not to drive an RV through the tunnels.

Might be better to post this in the "location" or "crossroads" sections.
We are doing an east coast trip for the first time in reverse of your trip. Going cross-country and then from SC, Shenandoah Valley, Washington, Gettysburg, PA, VT, NH, MA, and then Montreal and through Ontario.

Send me a message and could share more. Best to have reservations at some of those spots along the way.

When you get to South Carolina which of course is on the way to "Joe Ja" you might stop at:

1) Huntington Beach State Park. Take a look at BrookGreen Gardens, eat great seafood in Murrells Inlet, and do the shopping/tourist thing in Myrtle Beach. If you like to golf, I've heard there are some fantastic courses near by. ;-))

2) Charleston, stay at James Island County Park. Too much to do in Charleston to write here.

3) Hunting Island State Park. Mainly just take a day or two to relax, enjoy the beach, crab or fish at the pier and drive around historic Beaufort.

As far as places to stay, fuel stops and so forth put the app RVparky into your phone. Can also be accessed on your computer rvparky.com. I found it to be most helpful in planning a trip.

Thanks to those who responded. Great suggestions, very much appreciated. Perhaps I'll try posting on a different sub forum, may get a few more responses.
