Virginia Beach, Virginia
10 hours, 668 miles
Virginia is for lovers, so tell New Bae to buckle their seatbelt, you’re headed to the beach. Get some alone time in at False Cape State Park, where you’re sure to fall for the park’s miles of pristine beaches and hiking/biking trails.
Where to stop:
Get an early start on your drive to the beach, and allow time for a detour to Point Pleasant, West Virginia, the home of the Mothman urban legend. This urban legend is so popular it gave the world The Mothman Prophecies book-- and a movie, too. Roadside America ranks it at as one of the best roadside attractions to see. Beyond the statue, there’s also a Mothman museum to tour, and next year, if you pass through in the middle September, you can time your trip to coincide with the annual festival.
