While en route from North Carolina to a much-anticipated vacation in Maine later this month, we’ll be driving through your part of the country and in need of some good road food. Type of food doesn’t matter, although regional specialties are always appreciated, and there won’t be any kids with which to contend. Due to the length of the drive (nearly 20 hours, which we plan to do in 1 day), we don’t want to deviate much from our route, so staying within a few miles of the highways listed below is preferable. Can anyone provide some recommendations along our route? Thanks in advance, and I promise to post back with our experiences.
In New Jersey - I-78 until we pick up I-95 right near the New Jersey/New York state line
In New York – just a short leg on I-95 from the New Jersey border across to the Connecticut border
In Connecticut – I-95 to I-91 @ New Haven, then to I-84 @ Hartford and on to the Connecticut/Massachusetts state line
