We are a family of 5 driving from Canada (Oakville, ON) to New Orleans to go on a cruise over the Christmas holiday. Our plan is to drive directly to New Orleans without any sight-seeing, but to take time to see some sights on the way back (after the cruise).
We're planning to cross the border at Windsor/Detroit, and would love input on the best route, and best places to overnight from Detroit to New Orleans. Any suggestions about where to stop/visit on the way back would also be great!
Our initial thought is to leave VERY early the morning of December 19th (5:00 am). The cruise departs from the Port in New Orleans at 4:00 pm on December 21st.
I hope this is enough information to get your thoughts and advice. Thanks in advance! :-)
