Letting the kids choose where you go on summer vacation is a risky option, but Myrtle Beach is a great result. Plus, the drive is relatively painless. Here’s the best route from NJ to Myrtle Beach, SC:
  • Take the New Jersey Turnpike (I-295) until it merges with I-95 in Delaware
  • Follow I-95 South until you reach North Carolina
  • Just south of Lumberton, North Carolina, take the exit for I-74 East to US-74
  • Next, take the exit for Chadbourn/North Carolina 410, which turns into US-107
  • Merge onto South Carolina 9 South
  • Take a right onto South Carolina 66 South
  • Make a left onto Red Bluff Road
  • Turn right onto South Carolina 905 South
  • Merge onto South Carolina 22 East and in just a few miles, you’ll roll up to Myrtle Beach
The drive takes about 10 hours and traverses 625 miles one way, so adding towing and labor coverage may be the best option for your protection. Use the Jerry app to compare quotes and find the best rate. You may just save up some extra cash to do something extra special on your vacation.
