Yes but you must unhook propane bottles but otherwise the restriction is if winds are 40 MPH you cannot go. It usually does'nt blow that hard and if it does will die down with frontal passage.

Yes - it puts you into the Norfolk/Newport News area. From there you can take 58 west out to Emporia to hook up with I-95 South, or take US 17 or any number of other routes south, depending on temperment, time, and tides. As noted you'll need to turn off your propane bottles, but that's the only warning. I've been over the CBBT dozens of times, and it's almost always a nice ride.

Agree, no need to disconnect the RV propane...they only require that it is turned off. Went through last fall...it's quite the bridge/tunnel ride.

Yes you can just make sure your propane is off and don't try it if there is a wind advisory.

Back to the original question you can avoid a ton of traffic and save a lot of time by picking up RT1 south in Delaware off of 95, Then pick up 113 which takes you straight to RT 50 if going to Ocean City

+1 with a bullet. Delaware Route 1 is a nice, mostly four lane divided road running from I-95 just south of Wilmington down to Dover and a bit beyond. There is one toll booth on it, not sure exactly what the hit is since I use EzPass and just ramble on through. Look for US 113 south which has far fewer traffic lights and intersections than US 13. Then US 50 east to Ocean City, MD. A very nice, relaxed trip 90% of the time. There is the usual amount of shore-bound summer traffic on Thursdays and Fridays, of course but there's no way around that, and it's on all the roads anyway.

I agree with JiminJersey....Rte 1 & 113 is the way I always take. I think the toll on Rte 1 is $1 Monday-Thurs. $2 Fri-Sat-Sun. With Hi Speed EZ Pass...It's still a bargain. It's a nice pleasant ride. Plus, There's a fair amount of stores, eateries, etc on Rte 113 for any supplies you might need on the way.

I'll be coming down I87.

An alternate is to take the Garden State Parkway to the Cape May a Ferry. It's not cheap but you get to relax for 90 minutes or so instead of driving. And if you time it right you can avoid a lot if traffic.

Highly recommend Castaways at the far end of Ocean City (Berlin, MD)

Happy trails!

We were at the Delaware State Beach Park in Rehoboth last year. As mentioned earlier, no trees or amenities except for the beach being within walking distance. The beach is nice and Ocean City is down the road about 30 mins. south. It is located on an inlet, so there is also some good fishing off the jetty. I understand they are doing some work there to make it a nicer destination.

This year we heading to the Castaways for Memorial Day weekend. It will be our first time there. The reviews in RVParkreviews.com are very good, so our expectations are high... As is the price!

Angler, we are located in Milton, NY, which is about 30 mins south of you in Saugerties.

Just came home from Cheasapeake Bay, cold and nasty wind, 30 Knots from the NE yesterday, today they died off some. Almost 80 at home. Diesel fuel at Port Royal on 301 is 3.69.
