We are in Port Charlotte and have to return to the Buffalo, NY area. Mapquest tells us to go from the west coast of Florida to the east coast, then north on 95 to 26 to 77 to 79.My buddy says we should up 75 to 71 through Cleveland. Seeing that I hate highway 19 at Beckley, I am willing to consider 75 to 71 to Buffalo.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter?
Thanks in advance

I ran it on my MS Streets and Trips, it chose from the west coast of Florida to the east coast, then north on 95 to 26 to 77 to 79 but it routed from Ocala to I-10 west of Jacksonville via US 301. Mileage worked out to 1366.

I forced it to route through Cleveland and the mileage worked out to 1448 using the same start and end points. It's an extra 82 miles, your call.

77 19 19 route is the shortest with less traffic however depending on what time of year you might hit some snow.

DeLorme Street Atlas 2009 takes you across Florida, up I-95 to I-26 and I-77 as you describe for Mapquest. But instead of having you get off I-77 at US 19 and go up I-79, it has you stay on I-77 to Pick up I-90 around Cleveland. There is very little difference in time or distance between this route and going up I-79, so you could easily avoid 19.
