Preferred route to south haven, mi?

Traveling from port Clinton, oh to south haven, mi and I see two primary routes.
475n to 23 to i94

Or 80/90 to i69 to i94

Is one preferred over the other? This in new territory for me. I'm pulling a 30' fver if that makes a difference.

Thanks.

Jim

I believe taking 80/90 to 69 would be a bit more direct. 80 is a toll road. To avoid tolls I would take rt2 to I280 475 to rt20 (Central ave exit) then head west to 131 to 12 to 40 to 43. You will have around 10 miles thru Toledo. Rt 2 is scenic rural area as well as 20. I depends on how fast you want to get there. Rt 2 and 20 are mostly two lane and a slower pace. We like taking 20 avoiding the toll, when going to Auburn Ind.

Wishing you safe travels!

PS if you do take rt 20 when approching 75/475 on I280 stay in left lane once on 75/475 get in rt lane (about 2 miles)to exit heading west to 23. There is construction at that exit but short lived .

Thanks about the toll advice. I didn't realize 80/90 was a toll road. I like scenery but looking to make good time. This is the 2nd leg of our trip. Is the route 475/23 to I94 good?

Thanks

That rt is fine and would be faster. You may encounter some construction on 94 but shouldn't be much. If you tune to 760 or 950 am radio they usually brodcast any traffic problems on the major highways. Not really necessary just an fyi.

In terms of millage, I don't think it makes much difference.

In terms of freeway tolls, The southern rout is a toll road as I recall.

NOTE: if you take the toll road, you can go all the way to around Elkhart and then cut north to South Haven.

But From ELkhart to Detroit, I headed straight north, picked up some roads I know and I-94 south of Battle Creek (Lakewood) and then East.

That was the day they raised the toll you see.

NOTE: Odds are good you will hit construction on I-94, check with www.michigan.gov/mdot for where.

Took i94 across Michigan and didn't see any construction. The drive went very well.
Thanks all.

Now to enjoy our stay in south haven.

You at Sunnybrook? We stayed there when we went to South Haven in 2009. Very nice place.

Have lunch or dinner at Clementine's - a late 19th century bank turned into a restaurant. They still have the vault & the woodwork around the bar is a spectacular piece of woodworking.

I'm not aware of any major construction on I-94 right now. Although the barrels can go up anywhere at any time.

If you take I-94 you'll want to go north on 131 just a couple exits to M-43 west. That will take you directly to South Haven. If you are heading to SunnyBrook I was just there a couple days ago. It is a nice park, but the sites seemed a bit crowded to me. The people are nice, facility was also very nice. Just seemed the sites were a bit small. Mind you, I did not stay there, only drove through to take a look.

We stayed at Sunnybrook and are leaving today. 4 nites after staying 5 nites at east harbor.
Both are nice locations and I would stay here again.
