As mentioned previously, we are taking 3 days to drive down to Florida. Doing it in 2 days is very reasonable from Southern Ontario, but with a 10 month old, probably too much. The plan is to be on the road for about 8-9 hours a day (7 hours of driving and 1-2 hours of breaks). Our first night will put us in Clarksburg, West Virginia, and our second night we'll be in Columbia, South Carolina.
We booked our hotels for the drive down; in Clarksburg we will be staying in a Hampton Inn and in Columbia, we will be in a Fairfield Inn. All I have to say is thank god for Trip Advisor! If it weren't for that website, I would be really afraid of which hotels to stay in. I'm always worried about the state of roadside motels, as there are some pretty dicey ones out there.
If you live in Southern Ontario or states close to Ontario, you will know that the drive down to Florida is very picturesque. You see rolling farm fields, beautiful mountain ranges and dense forests.
One of my favorite spots along the way is the New River Gorge bridge. What a site!
I'm sure we will have a few headaches along the way with making sure Graydon doesn't sleep the whole time in the car, but I'm sure it will still be great!
