Best route from where and to where?? Boise to the Keys? Bar Harbor to Tampa?


And what do you want to do when you get here? What are you driving or pulling? More info is needed.


And did you just post this in another forum? Somewhat bad net-etiquette if so.

Kids to Disney-world but likely meet up with friend who lives in Miami.


No towing involved.


Not posted in other area of this forum. Other sites do not count. No etiquette involved.


Was thinking of heading south then across.

Come south from Washington State and when you hit I-10, take that east to Florida. When you get to I-75, go south and take the Florida Turnpike at Wildwood (just south of Ocala) down to the Miami area. Good Luck and Safe Traveling!

I live near Disney World. June is a pretty good month to travel to Florida. Weather is warm and the summer thunderstorms have not really gotten started. By July and August we are in the middle of constant afternoon storms. If you are trying to avoid mountainous travel then straight down I-5 to Bakersfield, CA, Highway 58 to Barstow, CA., then I-40 to Kingman, AZ., then US 93 south to Phoenix, AZ. and pick up I-10 East from there. This will keep you out of a good deal of Los Angeles traffic and the roads are good. I use to live in Vacaville, California and this is the route I used to move to Florida. ( Also lived in Tacoma, WA. for 5 years. USAF at McChord AFB.)

Safe travels and enjoy America!

Your post was very clear so I don't see the problem that the other person replying had.

If doing the trip in winter I'd recommend heading south and taking I-10 to Florida. Any other time of year you can drive anywhere, depending what you plan to see along the way and how much time you have.

Have a good trip!

I'd suggest you just watch the weather and let that sort of dictate the route. Maybe go way south if the middle of the country has bad weather. Keep an eye out in the south (TX, OK, LA, MS, etc. for spring storms involving high winds and tornados.

We generally choose I20 or I40 going west during March/April depending on the weather; we generally don't like the I-70 route through St Louis then down through Nashville and Atlanta.
