Lumberton NC is a good half-way point to stop for the night. Many hotels (pet friendly too) right close to I95. I stay at the Quality Inn on Wintergreen Drive in Lumberton. Clean, safe, nice free breakfast.

Thanks, everyone. I may try the AutoTrain someday, although I think the drive isn't all that bad (unless you hit traffic). I have done I-95 all the way into Florida a few times, and down 301 on others. Neither one seems "better" than the other, although you can hit more traffic, lights and "speed traps" on 301.

Going from FL to NYC area means you get to relax on the auto train, and then you have to finish your trip in frustrating congestion.

Just reverse these directions and you can come out by The Home Depot on 441 (Rolling Acres).

The auto train is just off I-95 in Northern VA. Not for everyone, but a nice change. Always get at least a sleeper. I brought a Miata back to VA. in April. Views were great and 2 good meals. Much better than driving a Miata 12 hours up I-95.
