  1. Default Dallas to Orlando

    I'm planning on taking my 3 kids to Orlando (from Dallas) in July. It will be me and my 16 yr. old doing all the driving and I want to stop overnight somewhere.

    It looks liike Mobile, AL is about halfway. Any suggestions on where a good stopover would be? Anything fun to see/do while we're there? Any hotel suggestions?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Mobile is close to the midpoint - I'd say Gulfport is probably the ideal midpoint. Not knowing what types of things you are in to doing, it can be difficult to make suggestions. However, one option for you in Mobile would be the USS Alabama Memorial Park.

    If you plan on staying in Mobile, be aware of your surroundings. Mobile has some pretty rough areas, it's a depressed city. If you aren't beat by the time you get there, you may want to go on to Pensacola. Alternately, look at somewhere in the Gulfport/Biloxi/Pascagoula area.

    You will probably like glc's first Pensacola idea more, Pensacola has some excellent beaches with white sand, and warm turqouise blue waters (better beaches than MS), and its still very affordable to stay at. Its also only 7 hours to Orlando while Biloxi is 9 hours.
