The better question is how long do you have? You can do the East Coast over the course of a lifetime, or, if done in smaller trips, can take as little as 2 weeks. How long your East Coast adventure takes is totally up to you, your budget and how long you spend savouring each moment and destination.
Depending on where you want to start and end you can adjust your itinerary and take as much time to explore as needed.
