Introduction: Have you ever had an idea to make a road trip to Florida? If yes, what would you choose: just drive straight or have some stops? I wanted to show you one way of realizing that trip, which I’m planning to do soon.
Thesis Statement: Route from New York to Florida with amazing stops on the way, such as Cape May, Chincoteague Island, Chesapeake Bay Tunnel/Bridge, Virginia Beach, Charleston, Savannah and our final point – Jacksonville.
1. First part of the road: From New York to Chincoteague Island, VA (www.roadtripamerica.com):

b. According to official website – www.capemaylewesferry.com, information about Cape May Ferry.
c. Second point of interest – Chincoteague Island (“home of wild ponies”).
2. Second part of the road: From Chincoteague Island, VA to Charleston, SC:
a. Driving through Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel to Virginia Beach. According to www.cbbt.com/facts, we know interesting facts about Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. At nearly 20 miles long, this bridge is one of the architectural wonders of the east coast.
b. First point of interest – Virginia Beach, VA (staying overnight). Virginia Beach has all the elements of a classic seaside resort: gorgeous beaches, a lively boardwalk, plenty of restaurants and nightspots.
c. Second point of interest – Charleston, SC (according to www.charlestoncvb.com, things to see and do in Charleston). The best way to see this historic city and its remarkable architecture is taking a carriage ride or walking around.
3. Third part of the road: From Charleston, SC to Jacksonville, FL (final destination):
