We are driving down I-95 from NC to Disneyworld in mid-July and have 24 hours to kill along the way. A straight trip would be about an 8-hour drive, but we prefer to break it up and spend the night somewhere along the way and explore a little. Travelers are an adult and an 8-year-old. We are meeting up with the rest of the family in Orlando. Thereafter, we will be spending 4 days at Disney then 6 days at Cocoa Beach.
Just trying to think of where a good place to break up the 8-hour drive might be. We've been to Savannah and Sea Island, Ga before. I was thinking of driving into Florida before stopping for our 24-hour adventure somewhere. We could go to Amelia Island, Jacksonville or nearby beaches; we could go to St. Augustine or somewhere else.
Any suggestions? I don't know Florida well other than the Orlando area.
