Anyone drive alternate route to Myrtle Beach?

Good afternoon everyone,

We just came back from Virginia Beach-for field hockey with middle daughter. We found it's just 8 hours down to that point from where we live in NY. Has anyone driven from there to Myrtle Beach that doesn't involve I-95? We are thinking going down 17 might work. If you've done it, how long does it take? We've been going the long way-takes us 2 days split heading over to I-81 then cutting back across Virginia to come out above Richmond. Has to be a better way than using the NJTPK-it's got to be pricey towing a vehicle, but if need be we'll do it. Any suggestions for a new route?

Thanks!

Nell

We did all the Atlantic islands earlier this year. Did Williamsburg, VA, then down 17 to Kitty Hawk, Oracoke, Myrtle Beach and then on down to Savannah. 17 was good all the way, and a lot better sightseeing than the interstate. We did the ferries to and on down from Oracoke. A bit expensive, but less gas than going around, and a lot more fun. Myrtle Beach State Park was a very good place to spend a few days. Great facilities, shade, wonderful free beaches, and a Georgia peach at the camp office.

So is 17 more for sightseeing then? I want to avoid the moving parking lots that happen every so often on I-95 in the Washington, DE, MD areas. We've been doing the longer route, but it's close to 17 hours from where I am in NY and that just seems too long. Going way out to I-81 and crossing over to come out in VA by Fredricksburg seems to take all day. But we'll do it if that's best way. Anyone else got ideas to get from the Hudson Valley area to Myrtle Beach?

Nell

Don't know how to get to philadelphia, but from there go down to Dover, then on down 13 across the bay Tunnel-bridge. Pick up 17 on down a bit, then either go out and down the islands, Kitty Hawk, Hatteras National beach and seashore, free ferry to Oracoke, then ferry to Cedar Island. Then on to Jacksonville and pick up 17 again. 17 on to Myrtle beach. We were driving a 30' Hurricane Class A with a toad and really enjoyed it. This is absolutely the sightseeing route, so if you have the time, enjoy all the sights on the way. I don't like to drive interstates, too much traffic and they bypass all the fun sights.
