  1. Default Slow route from New York to Baton Rouge?

    Hi, all--

    Just discovered this site, and maybe just in time. I may be relocating from a 'burb north of New York City to Baton Rouge, so I would have to drive there next month. I'm pushing 60, the reflexes are showing down, and I hate roads with speed limits above 55mph. (Bad enough that plenty of people go 65 on these!) And, never having seen the country between these two points, I'd like to see something on the way down. Maybe I will have 5 days or so, and don't want to drive more than about 300 miles/day.

    I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    I'd say that US-11 fits what you are looking for for much of its route, although in areas it does share alignments with Interstate highways.

    The road goes through several cities, including Harrisburg, PA; Chattanooga, TN; and Birmingham, AL, roughly parallel to the Interstate so you won't be too far away from lodging and places to eat but still off of the highways.
