Route from Orlando to Maine

Looking for the best route to take from Orlando to Maine in my Class A 25' motor coach. Leaving on October 9th and want to avoid Hurricane Matthew and any possible damage left in its wake. Will be grateful for any suggestions.

I think I'd go up I95.

I went from Maine to Florida several years ago on I95 the whole way.

if you go I95, make sure you have an ezpass. It will make life easier at the tolls. you can get them at service plaza if I recall.

Thanks for the input. I-95 definitely seems the most direct route but I am concerned about driving conditions and places to stay in the wake of Hurricane Matthew and all the flooding I have read about. Also thanks for the EZpass tip!

Your best route is not I95 all the way to Maine, it might be the worst. If you search this site you will see the majority of travelers will do the following. I95 to Rt. 26 in SC to I77 thru Charlotte to I81 to I84 at Wilks Bare PA. All the way to I90 Ma Pike to I495 then back on I95 at the NH border. I use this route from Cape Cod to Florida all the time. Its less stressful, scenic, minimum tolls (Mass Pike). There are several versions of this trip so look it up.

The above, is my choice for all of the trips I make from the FL. Keys to Syracuse, NY.

The I 95 route is nothing but traffic, in all of the major cities.

I would check on road conditions before I started this trip. I am hearing that I-95 through SC is still closed as is I-26. I-16 may also have problems. You may also have problems finding gas and a place to stay as most campgrounds are full with people fleeing the flooded areas. In normal times I would take I-95 to I-26 to I-77 to I-81 to I-87 and avoid all the metropolitan areas of the north east. I hope you have reservations because most campgrounds in Maine close after October 15. Good luck.
