78w-81s-77s-95s-A1A/301-75s. Get off 95 before 10. Take 301 to below Ocala. 321 I believe.

You don't say were in New Jersey you are leaving from, but if you do leave at 2 am, you can take I-95 all the way south to I-10 and avoid DC traffic. We travel from GA to NJ and back multiple times a year. As long as we leave by 3:30 am at the latest, we easily make it to Fredericksburg, VA by 7 am (averaging 74 mph) and avoid all the traffic of Northern VA and DC. The rest of the drive is smooth sailing. We leave from South Jersey (30 minutes from Delaware Memorial Bridge) and usually leave at 3 am. Same thing for the drive north lave GA at 3 am and get to NJ by 3 pm. That's making only 1 stop for gas, food and potty.

We have done the route 81 thing and always use that on the return trip.
Going south from NY state we make it to our in laws near Lancaster pa first by avoiding NJ (very congested). We leave their house and get onto route 95 at 8pm and make it PAST washington DC and spend night in rest air just past DC (the car only one). and then onward we go.
OR leave nj around midnight and head south....
