  1. Default Houston --> Atlanta TOMORROW! :)

    Yes, we're doing a very last second trip, yikes! With 3 little ones! We were going to just drive the 12+ hours straight (we've done it before and it sucks, but we've managed). Now we're thinking of breaking it up into 2 days.

    New Orleans is a definite and obvious stop.

    Where would we sleep? Drive an extra hour or so beyond New Orleans and stop in Gulfport or maybe Mobile? Any ideas? We'd ideally like a suite with a separate room for the kids, so any personal experience with a good place would be appreciated.

    Is it worth the extra 2 hours or so out of the way to cross over into Florida and maybe spend an hour or so on the beach, or is that totally ridiculous?

    Our main goal is just to get from A to B, but we also would like to make this a slightly more memorable than usual road trip for our little troopers! Thanks so much for all your help... :)

    Welcome to RTA!

    I think going into Florida would be counter-productive because there are no Interstate highways from there to Atlanta without adding too many miles to the trip. Why don't you look at spending the night around Gulfport, then hitting the beach right there in the morning?

    You should be able to find a decent hotel with suites somewhere in Gulfport, Biloxi, or Pascagoula. Do a web search for "hotels near (put the city name in) with suites".

    Gulfport has a bunch of places with suites -- EconoLodge Inn and Suites, Legacy Inn and Suites, Comfort Suites, to name a few. There are some in every price range.

    Thank you both! That definitely does sound easier than going out to FL. :)
