Belfast to Derry drive?

Hi, real excited for my first trip up to Northern Ireland and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on an interesting / scenic or route while driving from Belfast to Derry? (Interesting places along the way?) We will be there in late December just after Christmas.

Also if anyone has any heads up on events around Dec. 30 anywhere up North. Thanks!

Not directly related to your question but I notice that you're from USA. If you get a chance, try and check out the Ulster-American Folk Park near Omagh. Its website is www.folkpark.com It's a great museum, well worth the trip (probably about 40-50 minutes drive from Derry). I don't see it mentioned much on the forum much but it's very popular and is a mixture of indoor and outdoor sections so with a hood or brolly, it can still be done on what we call a 'soft' day. It's only open on weekdays during the winter, though.

I would confirm the comments about the Ulster-American museum. It is very good. The reconstructed buildings from both sides of the pond are excellent. If you like that sort of thing allow plenty of time.
