Excited to be moving to Raleigh next month, and driving from Tampa to Raleigh (about a 10-11 hour drive). Want to split the drive up and layover after 5-7 hours driving, which will put me anywhere between the Savannah and Myrtle Beach areas for the night.
Would prefer not to deviate too far from the Interstates and not too particular about the hotel for just one night (Hilton Garden Inns, Courtyard Marriotts, etc. are all fine) ... but would love to have a great meal that night just to remember the drive. REALLY dig good seafood and price isn't an object ... since I'll be on my own, would prefer to eat at the bar. If there is a great restaurant near a decent hotel, even better so I could have a few glasses of wine without worrying about driving.
