This summer, travel agents say the top 5 hot spots to drive to will be. 1 Orlando, Florida 2 Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 3 Washington DC 4 Williamsberg, Virginia 5 Yellow Stone National Park. It's going to cost a little more to sleep and eat on the road. roughly $215.00 a day for a family of four, up 1% from last year. And to get the most bang out of your buck.. AAA advises 1.
