Good to meet you. I'm a newbe to RV travel. I just got my RV in April so I have a good idea of all the things rolling around your mind. I do not know the best total route, but I live just south of Washington DC and there is never a good time of day to go anywhere near DC traffic. Unless of course you want to visit. DC is very interesting but the traffic is awful anytime of day. Our rush hour from the south start about 5:00am turns around about 2:00pm without a break, and end after about 9:00pm. Other than those times of day you have a 50/50 chance of getting through there with out problems. Enjoy your trip.

Al, planning on SA Tex to Boston and back trip (3 weeks) Try Bing, Mapquest or AAA. AAA hard to get into but one of the best. All will give lots of choices for routes. There are other resources and nothing like someone that has been there before sharing info. Keep checking and posting, someone will kick in some info.

The fastest route, doing the speed limit, is going to be I-90W to I-79S-US-19S
to I-77S
to I-74/US-62S
to I-40E
to I-73S
to I-95S (just a little way)
to US-301
to US-501/US-378
into Myrtle Beach.

~856 miles. 1 day 5 hours 5 minutes, give or take a little.

Hey Atek,

First off welcome to iRV2 & the great RV lifestyle! I think one of the best things to do, even if you have a maping program or GPS with you is to also have a good paper Road Atlas! Another route for you is I-90E to I-390 to I-86 to I-81S to I-64E to I-295 to I-95S to US-301 to US-501 into Myrtle Beach ! Also your time limit has a lot to do with picking a route, as well as what type of roads you like to travel! Even though I am retired and take my time I still like to travel on certain interstates for finding lots of places that are easy to get in and out of for gas, food or overnight stay! Hope this helps some and enjoy & have a safe trip no matter what route you take!
