Renting a car during the spring is one of the most beautiful times to take a long drive. The highways around the country are filled with wildflowers and greenery. Life seems to be waking up at every corner. America’s East Coast is filled with beautiful sites to see. Whether it’s the great cities like New York or DC, or historical sites like Jamestown, there are so many sites along our East Coast.
And what better time to take a vacation than spring? We may be biased, but there’s something magical about driving down a highway blooming with wildflowers. No one actually thinks they have seasonal depression until they’re singing and dancing when it’s nice and sunny out on a random day in March. And when the Springtime rolls in, it’s a perfect time to plan a romantic road trip, or a family getaway.
So whether you’re planning a weeks-long trip, or want to do a power road trip along the East Coast, we suggest stopping in one (or all!) of these four shore towns.
1. Myrtle Beach
Myrtle Beach can be your first beachy stop from Savannah. With its endless miles of beach there are literally thousands of things to do along Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area. We’re not exaggerating!
Known for its celebrity-designed golf courses, 60-miles of coastline, along its shore are an array of arcades, amusement parks, souvenir shops, and restaurants. Whether you’re making an entire vacation from Myrtle Beach, or just a quick jaunt on your East Coast trip, you’re sure to find some exciting things to do in this shore town.
2. The Outer Banks
Moving along North on our East Coast road trip are North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They live up to their name as they’re barrier islands off the coast of the state. The Outer Banks separate North Carolina from the Atlantic Ocean and are connected by various bridges, the longest being the Virginia Dare Bridge.
Take a bit of a detour and drive along its 5.2 miles to see open sea and beauty. There is always something exciting to do in the Outer Banks. They have a vast selection of restaurants, attractions, shopping, and events to welcome any type of tourist to its sunny shores.
3. The Jersey Shore
While the MTV show would have you think otherwise, the Jersey Shore can actually be a quiet and quaint stop along your East Coast road trip. Known for their boardwalk and home of the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, the Jersey Shore has a wide selection of beach activities to do along its coast.
If you’ve got the kiddos with you, you can stop in Point Pleasant for a daytime trip to the boardwalk where the family can play games, eat cotton candy, and ride all the rides they want. They’ve got a funhouse and an aquarium to make the day even better for your family.
If you’re not with kiddos and are looking for a more nightlife vibe, you can stop in Seaside, home to night clubs on the beach and yes, Snooki. But really almost all shore towns along the Jersey Shore have a quiet boardwalk you can walk with your hunny for a nice romantic getaway.
Our last stop along the East Coast is the historical town of Plymouth, MA. We have to admit, the Plymouth Rock is really just a big ol’ rock, but it’s cool to see it and marvel at its history.
The quiet town has some of the country’s most delicious seafood. And being one of our nation’s oldest settlements, the city has tons of rich history and museums to explore.
