Kinda cool that I stumbled upon this message board cuz I'm trying to find the most scenic route to chicago, ill. I live in Southwestern Louisiana and I've always wanted to travel north and I finally have an excuse! My cousin needs a ride to chicago so I figured I'd make it a nice road trip. She's never been up that either so we'd like to pack as much different terrain and scenery in this trip as we can.
Looking on the road atlas, I see that I can take Interstate 55 from Louisiana all the way to Chicago, but that's a whole lotta interstate, man. I'd really love some input if you all have any.
