heading to Myrtle Beach

I'm heading to Myrtle Beach in 2 weeks from CT, I was wondering if anyone else has done this trip from NE and if so what is the best route to take, one of my main concerns is around the DC/Baltimore area.

Should I just take 95 all the way down or, is 95 the best route?

Just plan for road construction on 95 South towards Baltimore. Head in the direction of the Key Bridge to avoid some of the road construction on the Baltimore Beltway-Rte 695 at Charles Street and Liberty Road exits. You won't be able to use either tunnel in Baltimore due to propane restrictions. You'll pick up 95 South again on the other side of the city off of 695 Inner Loop.
We travel to Myrtle Beach each summer. I usually try to leave my area around 10 PM so I deal with less traffic until I get south of the Capital Beltway- Rte 495. There always seems to be road construction on 495 as well.

will there be signs posted. When we drive to Florida (without the camper) I don't pay much attention to restrictions for the tunnel due to we're in the suv. Now I'm towing the camper, I'm trying to find the best route to take.

Yes there are signs about the restrictions. Where are you staying? We've been to Myrtle beach Travel Park, Lakewood Family Camping Resort and Ocean Lakes Camping Resort. They all are excellent places. We try to get as close to the Ocean as possible. If you're a seafood lover you're heading to the right place. I highly recommend Crabby Mikes and the Noizy Oyster if you like steamed crabs. There are so many places with seafood it's mind boggling. Have a great time and be safe.

You will like it there. They have a lot of big sites unlike the other CG's there where they pack you on top of each other.

That's our next planned place to stay. We like trying different places and I've heard some nice reviews about Pirate Land from others on the forum.

Have 5 days and will be in MB myself for 2 weeks. Been going there all my life. Not as a camper though. We have camped the last 6 years. If traveling on a Sat might want to avoid 95 very busy. Might want to check out how far 29 is from ya and try to pick up 74. Safe Travels
