Chicago to Mrytel beach

Any one drive from Chicago to Mrytel beach. We are going in a few weeks. Look for the best route. Are there tolls along the way? Also looking for a over night stop about half way there. Thanks.

should be no tolls, other than your Chicagoland area and I80 if you wish to take it to Ohio, but I75 and south should be good all the way to Kentucky at a good stop at Exit 62, Renfro Valley, where there are two good RV parks just down the street...

then thru Knoxville on I40, thru Asheville NC, etc... or your desired route.

or take I65 to Louisville, then I64 to Lexington and I75...

I like I80 all the way to I75 and then south, it may seem 'out of the way', but if time is of the essence, and comfortable driving ahead, this is a good route... no Indy, no Louisville, only Cinci.

We have been there many times and many ways. We love going through the Mountains. We like 65 to Indy, 70 over to Dayton, 35 to Charleston,WV. which is half way for us. $7.50 in tolls on 77 to Winston Salem, from there; depends on if your going North Myrtle or South. We usually stay near Surfside. My favorite place on earth. Enjoy!!

35 is 4 lane. The mountains are so interesting and beautiful, we havenít paid much attention to grade or elevation. We have never stayed at the State Park. But have walked to the parks pier, and walked around the campground. Nice gift shop at the pier, with some great ice cream. Your going to love it there.

35 in WV is mostly 4 lane, with 2 lane segments where the 4 lane isn't finished. There can be a lot of truck traffic on 35, but for the most part it moves well.
