This Guide Plans Your East Coast Road Trip - My Family Travels

With so many suggestions for what to do, where to eat and stay, the Drive I-95 guidebook can certainly help any road trip planner.

Ever wonder what it would be like to travel down the entire East Coast?  Interstate Highway 95 is the stretch of road that can take you from New Hampshire to Florida. If you travel the highway from beginning to end, you will have seen the entire East Coat. If this is your goal, definitely read Drive I-95.

Authors Stan Posner and Sandra Phillips, a husband and wife team of travel book writers, have recently released the book’s Fifth Edition. The book itself is fascinating to read, but it is also a great start for anyone who wants to see the states that border the Atlantic Ocean. 

Even if you’re not planning a trip to cover the entire Interstate, the book still provides accurate, as well as amusing, travel tips for every destination that can be reached via I-95.

In a simple to use, spiral-bound format, the authors take the reader exit by exit, explaining destinations with maps, history and trivia. 

For instance, North Carolina has a tasty treat waiting around exit 79.  Whether or not you are already planning a trip to North Carolina, you may be looking for the best pound cake around.  The authors say that once they found the “pound cake lady” in Benson, NC, her blue ribbon pound cake is worth the trip. 

Each exit exhibits its own charm and the authors bring you their advice with both experience and wit.  They not only include the best attractions but also lodging, restaurants, gas stations and more.  The book is great for families planning a trip along the East Coast because it will keep kids amused in the backseat, planning the next stop. 

Plus, the Drive I-95 website features even more information about Interstate-95, including an interesting driving blog, called “Drog.”

If you don’t have time to shop ahead, the book can be purchased at some shops along the interstate, and is also available as a PDF e-book, iPad app or USB key.
