Hello Road Trippers! Planning a trip from Little Rock to Port Canaveral, FL for a cruise. We've done this trip once before - I cannot remember how we broke the trip up but I do remember we spent one night in Dothan, AL and then we arrived in Port Canavarel late Thursday evening. Have kind of the same plan for this trip except we've thought about routing so we could maybe spend a night on the Gulf Coast. We enjoy having a day to chill out and relax from the big drive and we want to end up no more than a two hour drive of the port on departure day which is Saturday.
We aren't interstate fans but also recognize that it takes a certain amount of time to cover that much mileage! We both battle a bit of arthritis so frequent stops to stretch for a few minutes are always built into my planning. Would love to hear any ideas about possible routes and overnight stopping points. We get off work around 5 on Wednesday and we like to be checked in at the ship by 1:00 - everything in between is open to negotiation!
