#DriveUS1 is the hashtag to follow on social media as Ella takes us on a more than 4,700-mile north-south journey of US Route 1.

Ella’s east coast US road trip
US Route 1 takes in a number of states in the US east coast. Over the course of a six-week trip Ella will be heading off the road to stop in Maine, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Virginia, North Carolina, and Daytona Beach, Orlando and the Florida Keys in Florida. She’ll be bringing you stories from each, here on LiveShareTravel, and a host of other great travel sites.
“I’ve travelled widely in the US but haven’t spent much time on the east coast,” explains Ella. “There are so many stunning landscapes, beaches and cities steeped in history waiting to be discovered.
“As with all the best road trips, I’m expecting to find some quirky attractions along the route too.
“I’ll be posting stories, pictures and videos throughout the trip, finding the best places to stay, eat, drink and just hang out for a while. Can’t wait to take you on the journey with me!”
