Got any advice or pitfall warnings for a family of 4 who may be driving a rental car from upstate NY to St. Augustine, FL, on December 22-23 (weekend)?

This plan for getting to Florida makes sense (to us) when compared with the headaches & hassle of multi-hop air travel (especially since we have had lousy recent experiences with cancelled flights, etc.) or the unreliability of going by train. Looking for advice on things like:
- do we really need to avoid DC for traffic concerns if it's Saturday?
- where is a good halfway motel stopping point?
(Getting to family in FL is the goal - we don't need road trip sightseeing advice.)
