Savannah, GA to Washington, DC suggestions

Hello everyone,

The DW and I are planning about one month to get from Savannah, GA to Washington, DC around May of this year. We are trying to choose between a coastal route vs. hitting the cities just off the coast such as Augusta, GA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Raleigh, NC Charlottesville, NC.

We generally prefer natural areas to cities however there appears to be a lot of interesting places along either route. We do like learning about the history of an area.
I would like to hear what you think is the “best of the best along these routes”. We expect to stop 4 to 6 places spending anywhere from 3 days to one week at each stop.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions,

Stuart & Leslie

I don't think you'll find Charlottesville in NC. Last I knew, it was in Va.
So are you looking for routing help or places to see or stay? In other words, what is your question?

We like a rolling up US17. We hop inward to avoid Myrtle Beach then back on 17. Lots of lovely little towns as long the way. When you reach VA use the interstate to get into or around VA Beach/ Tidewater area. Then get back off north of New Port News/ Hampton onto US 17 and meander up the Northern Neck area toward Fredericksburg. Or you can take 17 in to Rappahannock and then wander up 301 or 3. Lots of history there. That can take you up thru MD toward DC google Northern Neck tourism for all the history info you can handle

Hello again,

Thank you for your suggestions.

I am looking more for interesting places to see. Once I know where I want to go we are very good at routing and finding rv parks.

So, my question is more about what are the not to be missed things to do and see.

Stuart

I just came back from NY and went to Emerald Isle NC to visit a friend. Got off 95 Near the VA NC boarder and after the isle went via Charleston and Savannah. Nice country.

Coming up from the south on Rt. 17 into Va., I'd recommend getting on I-64 to Yorktown, then up to Williamsburg. A lot of history through that area.

Charlottesville, VA drive up the Valley on Skyline Drive, stay in Shenandoah or in the GW National Forest. We have always enjoyed the hiking the AT from Harrisonburg, VA to Boiling Springs, PA.

Going north on closer to the coast I have liked 64W-17N-301N

Norfolk and VAB have many museums and parks to visit. MacArthur Memorial, USS New Jersey, Mariners Museum, Yorktown and Williamsburg. Pick your era.

Camping in DC area on the Maryland side try NPS Greenbelt

The Petersburg Va. battlefields are good for history buffs, as is Colonial Williamsburg. You can easily spend two days in the latter.

Fayetteville, NC has the US Special Forces Museum downtown - excellent museum if you're interested in the history of our Special Forces - Airborne, Ranger, Green Beret, etc.

While you're there there's also the 82nd Airborne Museum on Ft Bragg - you need to get a pass to get onto the base, but that's not hard to do. When you get to the gate you park and go into the building taking your driver's license, vehicle registration and insurance, and request a pass for each person in your party. You'll be subjected toa quick background check and issued a pass good for 90 days. Then proceed to the museum - another good museum if you're interested in military history.

There's also several local museums in Fayetteville that are worth a stop if you're interested in local history. If you're staying overnight, or longer, the Fayetteville RV Resort is an excellent place!

A little biased here but I would strongly recommend a few days in Charleston, SC, especially if you enjoy history.
