I wanted to get opinions on which route might be best to take from Eastern Kansas to Cincinnati:
Option #1: Take route 50 all the way through Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio
Option #2: Take route 50 through Missouri to St. Louis, then take I-55 down to Cairo, IL. From Cairo, IL, take Ohio River Scenic Byway through Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio to Cincinnati
Option #3: Take Route 50 through Missouri and Illinois. Before Indiana Border, take Route 130 down to Mount Vernon, Indiana, where it meets with the Ohio River Scenic Byway. Take the Byway through to Cincinnati.
Option #4: Take Route 54 from eastern Kansas through Southern Missouri, then take Route 13 down to Springfield, Missouri. From there, take Route 60 through to Cairo, IL. From Cairo, IL, take Ohio River Scenic Byway to Cincinnati.
I'm just looking for a good variety (river, farmland, etc.) Thoughts?
