Default Virginia Beach to Long Island NY

Was looking online and was getting a little confused on toll prices. I will have 2 axle northbound then 4 axles southbound, weekend prices.
See if any one would help w maybe the quickest way there and what to expect as far as toll $$. Thxs

When towing the best approach is up to the George Washington Bridge, Cross Bronx to Throgsneck Bridge to the LIE (495). There are many parkways on Long Island and they do not allow you to tow anything on them, plus low bridges.
Can't answer cost, but it won't be cheap, also try coming over or leaving in the early AM hours if possble.

Expect long(er) lines and higher costs if you don't use EZ Pass too.

Eastern Shore. You'll have a toll on the CBBT. Don't go 95. You have too many cities and outerbelts to deal with. Eastern Shore can be slow between here and Delaware, but it's a nice route.

Take I95N in Maryland to Rt 50 East over the Bay Bridge follow 301 North at the split with Rt 50. When you get to the Delaware line 301 turns into 896 stay on that and you will pick up I95 again. On your way back the Bay Bridge has no toll. You will save on tolls and frustration going this way.

Can't help past this.

Bay bridge tunnel rt 13 to rt 113 in Pocomoke MD to US 1 and over the Delaware Mem. bridge. NJ tpk to the GW bridge and follow above instructions from there, don't get on 95 any sooner then you need to. This route was given to me by both my boat movers and a friend who hauled fish from eastern NC to Hunts Point Market, Bronx.
