Hi two rigs leaving for Huntington Beach State Park in Murrels Inlet in South Carolina. Need some routing help since we do not want to travel RT 95 much since it has too much traffic. Obviously we need good routing without low overpasses or on roads that RVs are welcome. Thinking about going Rt 84 out of MA through CT and then on to Pennsylvania and then down to Virginia and to South Carolina but need help in routing that is pleasant and not lots of traffic AND need Campgrounds that are open this time of year. Hope to leave about March 2 and stop in PA first night, NC second night and then on to SC on 3rd day. Anyone that goes to FL from MA or RI help? Campgrounds that are open year round in PA, NC are important. Maybe instead of PA we could stay in Virginia if we make good time but.... Any help is appreciated.

I go RT95 to RT287 to RT78 then down RT81. RT81 is a very pleasant drive. We are drivng this route in June to go to Myrtle Beach. You can come back to RT95 through Richmond VA

"I go RT95 to RT287 to RT78 then down RT81. RT81 is a very pleasant drive. We are drivng this route in June to go to Myrtle Beach. You can come back to RT95 through Richmond VA "
SO how far down 95 is Rt 287? where do you pick up RT78 and where do you pick up RT81 and then what to SC and Murrells Inlet? Do you not find 95 with a lot of traffic. We leave on a Friday and come back starting on Friday so worry about traffic on that Friday mostly and coming back may take more time so Monday and Tuesday traffic. We love driving and hate sitting burning fuel in traffic, to say nothing of time spent doing nothing instead of traveling.
Thanks for your infor

We have traveled that way when on the east coast. Once 84 to 78 to 81 to 64 to 95 in Richmond. Another time we kept on 64 to Norfolk and visited the outer banks then to Wilmington and Myrtle Beach when we had time to leisurely explore the coast. We have also routed through Gettysburg and taken 15 to 64. Nice country road but slow. Had no problems on any of those routes.

You pickup RT287 just after Stamford CT which then goes over the Tappan Zee Bridge. Then proceed to RT78 West to RT81 south. Great drive through the Shenandoah Valley.

Do NOT travel that route if you don't like traffic...instead take 84 west over the hudson river to 87 south (NYS thruway) to 287 south. Longer but less traffic. East of the hudson 287 is also under construction

You may already be on the road but I'll post this in case you check before arrival at HBSP, a place we frequently visit. If you decide on I-95 through NC, I would suggest that you take Exit 13-A (US 74 east) just before SC. Travel about 25 miles to NC 410 south. Follow NC 410 to US 701. US 701 into SC to SC 9. East on SC 9 to Carolina Bays Parkway (SC 31). South to end of parkway where to get on SC 544. East to US 17. South to HBSP. Very good roads with very little traffic. Only go through one small town. Worst part of this route is US 701 as you enter SC but it is only about 5 miles to SC 9. Have a good trip.
