Washington DC

Washington DC is rich with history. Begin your adventure with a visit to one of DC's fascinating museums, which is sure to help set the stage of appreciation as you embark on an exploration up the east coast. Washington's museums run far and wide and include the Smithsonian, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of History, Gallery of Art, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, National Museum of American History, Newseum, and for the mystery lovers...the International Spy museum.


No road trip is complete with a stop for some up-close and personal urban legends. Centralia, a former coal mining town back in 1962, is the famed ghost-town of Pennsylvania and the infamous subject of the Silent Hill movie. The town has been abandoned for over 20 years and still burns hot coal of fire beneath its surface, which you can be observed through various smoke pockets throughout the town. The must see attractions here include the Odd Fellow Cemetery which oozes streams of smoke-for an eery night view, an abandoned church-rumored to be Centralias's last standing building, and the 148 year old time capsule- set to be opened in the year 2016.


Philly cheesesteak. Enough said. This hometown proud, and famous visitor attraction, sandwich is made of a 12 inch long, soft crusted roll with thin slices of sauteed ribeye beef and melted cheese, with your choice of fried onions, sauteed onions, sauteed mushrooms, hot or sweet peppers, and ketchup. Though you can't go wrong ordering this sandwich from any place in Philly, award winning favorites include John's Roast Pork, Tony Luke's-located right off the I 95 underpass, Pat's King Steaks and friendly rival, Geno's-located just across the street. According to natives, the key to a fantastic sandwich is the "drip" factor.

New Jersey

Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, located just off I-95-just five minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike, provides the perfect opportunity to shop for souvenirs of your trip. Famous name brand stores include Aeropostale, Bath & Body Works, Bed Bath & Beyond, GNC, BCBG, Kenneth Cole, Sunglass Hut, Banana Republic, Burlington Coat Factory, Limited Too, Kid's Outlet, Zales-The Diamond Store Outlet and more.


Stop by one of the beautiful beaches of Connecticut for an invigorating wade in the cool, blue waters, and perhaps, watch the sunset or sunrise before moving onto your next destination. Salt water beaches just off I-95 include Bradley Point Beach-West Haven (Exit 42), Calf Pasture Beach-Norwalk (Exit 16), Esker Point Park-Groton, Hammmonasset-Madison (Exit 62), and Lighthouse Point Park-New Haven (Exit 50) which also includes an exciting look at a 150 year old Lighthouse.


Once in Boston, head over to one of the crab houses for some much deserved grub. Maryland is famous for its Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs, which are often served with a pepper-crusted topping and house beer. For some of the best crab house experiences Boston has to offer, try L.P. Steamers, Mike's North, Waterman's Crab House, Captain James Landing or Jimmy Cantler's which all boast beautiful waterfront views for a relaxing scenery while enjoying your rustic feast. Tomorrow, head out for some exploration of some of the finest attractions Boston has to offer including Boston Harbor, Castle Island, St. Paul Cathedral, Franklin Park Zoo, Public Garden and more.

Remember to conduct a vehicle inspection before hitting the road. A car inspection will help prevent emergencies and help make your trip the adventurous, fun trip it was meant to be.
