Looking for away to By-Pass DC

I'm going to be traveling from Allentown Pa. to Myrtle Beach SC. I would prefer to by-pass the Washington belt way. Can anyone suggest a way around DC then back to I-95?

78 to 81. If you want to stay on the superslabs 81 to Staunton VA then 64 back east.

I would pick up 15 in Harrisburg and run that south. Most of it will be runnable at 55 or more.

If you are not in a hurry and feel adventurous take the DelMArVa penninsula and the bridge tunnel. ;-)

I have driven on the beltway with my Outlaw and it is not bad at all if you just time it right. Either before 5am or after 9pm. Any other times you will just be in the traffic. Pick a lane and get through it.
Getting there is half the fun - take your time and enjoy the scenery.

+1 on nothermark's route, I-81 is great road. I also like US15. When I bypass DC, I usually use US17 as a cut over from Fredericksburg to Winchester.

We just came down from Harrisburg using I-83, then around Baltimore on their beltway(I-695). We picked up I-97 south to Rt.3/301, to Rt.207, which will take you to I-95 well below D.C. This is the way we always take when heading to FL. for the winter.

Maybe 29 south would be an option. We're in Lancaster County and most of the time i81 is MUCH easier, saves time and is scenic.

Love Superslabs! (Great word!)

I have traveled from Wilkes-Barre PA to Leesburg Fl several times a year since 2000 for Bike week and to take care of chores around my moms house.
Best way I have found is 81 to 17 to 95.
Now with the MH, I go 81-66-17-95.
