Heading south from Boston towards MD and DC- roads to avoid? CG's to recommend?

We are heading south out of MA next week and heading toward DC (4-5 days...no real hurry). Would like to travel through and see a bit of RI and CT, and PA. Would like to route through Delaware and the eastern shore of MD then cross a bridge (or two) to end up around DC. We are from the other coast so are not familiar with bridge and tunnel restrictions here on the right coast, particularly around NYC.

If I stay on I-95, are there any known issues (weight, height, propane) with bridges and tunnels (if any) heading through NY (and maybe MD)? Will some other, non-interstate be a better route? We are traveling in a 37' Class A pulling a Jeep.

Assateague State or National Park was on DW's wish list, but there was an advisory on their website as of May 6. Anybody stay there recently?

Propane tanks are not permitted in the two harbor tunnels around Baltimore, I-95 and I-895. You must use either the I-695 bridge, or go around Baltimore to the west, also via I-695.

Having said that, it doesn't sound like you're planning goes that way, so it's not that big a deal. FYI, the propane restrictions are pretty well posted.

Good luck!

Ughhh!!! I would strongly suggest you AVOID crossing the George Washington Bridge on I-95 into NYC. I-95 south thru CT is very busy, usually pretty rough road surface. Much worse thru NY, and you are restricted as to which bridge deck (Upper, IIRC) allows propane. Once you hit the CT/NY line, get on I-287 running northwest to I-87 - cross the Tappan Zee bridge instead. We'll either pick up the Garden State Parkway or continue further west and get onto I-287 again to head south. NJ Tpk south, cross Delaware memorial Bridge, then almost immediately south on 1 in Delaware, then 13, all the way down. Cross Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel, puts you in the neighborhood. ST
