I am sorry if this is not the correct place to post this, but I am new to this forum. I plan on traveling on March from Mexico to Grand Prairie TX. It is a 580 mile drive. I plan on entering the US through Laredo TX. By that point I would have driven around 130 miles.
I plan on beginning the road trip around 1 PM on a Friday. The goal of the trip is a music festival in Grand Prairie, which will be on Sunday beginning at 11 AM, and I plan on driving back on Monday morning so I can get to Mexico
As this will be the first time ever to make a road trip in the US, I would like to know which is the best way to get from Laredo to Grand Prairie. I hope I can count on you guys to help me out with some of your advice.
1) Do you think it is too much to drive all the way to Grand Prairie? Would it be better to sleep halfway and continue the trip in the morning?
2) I see 2 main routes, 35 and 281. Which are the Pros and Cons of each? Is there another better way of getting to my destination?
3) Are there any places worth the visit on the way?
Any extra advice you could give me would be a lot of help.
