Visitor from Australia

We are from Australia, and have recently bought a 2007 Lexington 283 in Florida, and will be travelling to pick it up in a couple of weeks.
We intend to take about 3 weeks to drive from Orlando FL to New York, and would love some suggestions about the route and places we should include in the itinerary.

Well hello there!

I've never been to the part of the country you will be traveling, so I can't help you there. Just wanted to say hello and welcome!

Thanks for the kind words ZHANNA.
We are sitting in our TT in the middle of winter in Adelaide South Australia, planning our trip to Florida.

First off, welcome! I-95 will be your most direct route, and although I can't personally recommend where to stay. There are some great places to see that are on, or not far off the beaten path like: Savannah, Ga, Charleston, SC, Richmond, Va, Washington DC, and Philadelphia, Pa. Sorry I can't help you more, but hope you have a great trip and an enjoyable stay.

Welcome. Interstate 75 would take you to interstate 40 to interstate 81. You would have stone mountain, Georgia; Chattanooga, Tn; great Smoky Mountains; Shenandoah valley; Pennsylvania Amish country, and much more. The route you should take depends on what you want to do.

X2 what Patrick said...

Also, you did not say what you were going to do after New York. Typically folks do not like to do more than 350-400 MI/Day. Based on that, one way to New York is 3 days, round trip is @ a week of the 3 weeks you have planned.

One BIG Tip: RESERVATIONS...as you are eagerly anticipating, it is Summer in the USA This also means kids are out of school and EVERYONE is out camping

In fact, some of the highly desired stop overs (e.g. Townsend in the Smoky Mountains) may already be booked - so if I were you, make your decisions soon and book campgrounds ASAP.

OH, And welcome to the forums and soon to the USA from Huntsville, AL!
