Road trip season

Filed under: Uncategorized — dcdesi @ 2:39 am

Summer’s round the bend. It’s time to start planning road trips in North America.


My favourite ones have been

1)Montreal to PEI and Nova Scotia in Canada ( you should only attempt this in the summer, to make good use of the beautiful Canadian summer) ( 13-15 hours)

2) Palm Beach Fl to the Florida Keys ( definitely prefer doing this in the winters when the rest of North America is too cold)

3) Charlottesville to Savannah Georgia via Charleston ( though I’d rather do this in the spring and fall)

4) Montreal or Boston to Bar Harbour, Maine ( 6 to 8 hours)

5) Northern Virginia to Chincoteague Island ( 5 hours)

6) Northern Virginia to Toronto or back ( 8 to 10 hours)

7) Toronto to Tobermory (4 to 5 hours)

8) Boston to Vermont or Montreal to New Hampshire and Vermont (btw 3 to 5 hours) ( I prefer doing this trip in the fall when the foliage is in its best colours)

I know I should write the ones on the west coast, unfortunately the last time we attempted it, had to cancel it at the last minute.

We have covered the East Coast from Nova Scotia in Canada all the way down to the Florida Keys in the US.  We have done these road-trips with kids, we have done them without kids, we have done them after a month worth of planning and again within just 2 days of planning. We have done the road trips with all the stops identified, we have done the road trips picking hotels at 10 pm at night.

so all in all… been there done that..

ping us some of your favourite road trips.
