Looked at Rand McNally and if I go to Smithfield then take 95 S to I 26 , time wise is about equal and miles is about 45 more than traveling by Hwy 17 thru Myrtle Beach.

Interstate should be easier driving correct? Hwy 17 will be stop and go correct?

Which way should I go?

I like 17 in the off season. Never tried it in the summer.

If you don't mind interstate driving Take I95 you want regret it. 17 is ok but MB traffic can be bad and theres alot of speed zone, towns ETC...

I'd do 95 to 26, you can come off 26 on 171 right toJame Island.

Also. On 17, you are going to hit a gazillion stoplights, after you leave 40 at Wilmington. Ging down to, and thru Shallotte, and to the bypass around MB, then more after you get back on 17 to charleston.

Myrtle has a nice bypass now so you can miss most of that traffic. I could make Jacksonville NC to Charleston SC in 4 hours in a unloaded pickup. You'll still hit a bunch of small towns on the way.
