  1. Default Maimi to New Orleans?

    Hi all,

    My girlfriend/partner and I are travelling to the US from Australia in June/July of this yr (2011) and wanted to do a brief road trip (maybe 2-3 days) somewhere in the South East. A rough direction would be originating in Miami and finishing in New Orleans. Preferrably along the more interesting routes, if this means off the major interstate "concrete" roads then so be it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of possible routes to take/things worth seeing along the way? Keeping in mind this will be during the wet season, is it still feasible at this time of year? Or should we consider a completely different road trip all together!?

    Default No Reason Why Not

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Miami to New Orleans is a perfectly reasonable three day RoadTrip, through some interesting country and past some worthwhile attractions, and there's no need to stick to the Interstates. A basic route might look like US-1/FL-A1A north along the coast to Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center (although this is one stretch where the heavy population will have you wanting to use the Interstate, I-95, for much of it). Then FL-50 over to Orlando if some theme parks such as Disney World or Universal Studios are in order. US-441/US-27/US-19 would get you over to the Gulf Coast around Cedar Key while US-98/US-90 follow the coast across the Florida Panhandle, Alabama and Mississippi past Mobile Bay and the Gulf Islands national Seashore to New Orleans.

    There's certainly plenty to keep you occupied for three days along such a route. Sticking to the 'back' roads. you'd need a minimum of two days to just make the drive. But whether this is the best RoadTrip for you out of the entire United States is up to you.
