Nope.

When you get that far... then decide based on local conditions.
Personally... I'd go down I-75 (and stop 5 times along the way at Gulf Coast towns).
It's marginally longer but has the most reasons to be there. Map link HERE

Nope. Death Valley isn't near an interstate highway.

Sorry for post backing so late. I took I-10. Very safe and smooth and glad I did. But God it seemed long. I had to stop four times to make it to Miami. Not looking forward to another one of these cross-country drives.



I agree that the swampy area in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama is kind of scenic. It was actually my first time seeing a swamp. However, IIRC, Western/Central Texas had a pretty interesting landscape.


Thanks for all those who posted. Very helpful.

It is long. Over 3000 miles. 50+ driving hours. Most of six rolling days plus layovers.
But if/when you do a long road trip again... block more time, go in summer so you can stay north. link

Took me four. I did DC to Sacramento in 60 hours in the winter across I-80! Yes, I think they will get longer each time!!!
