I'm planning a road trip from San Antonio to Washington DC in the near future. My question is this...which route is better? SA North to Waco and then head East or San Antonio East towards Louisianna? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Not sure what route you'd take heading east from Waco.

I'd probably take I-10 East to Louisiana and then this route. Avoiding Atlanta is always my top priority when traveling through the South.

Texas Cop: are you just hauling fanny to get to DC, and return, or do you want to see some stuff, drive some fun roads, etc?

The 2-4 main interstate routes/variations are all ~1600 miles one way, and 'time' is really dependent on local construction, traffic, cops, lol!, etc.

Go with this route above. I've made that trip three times in the past few years and, once you get past Houston, it's a pretty good drive. The next real choke point is in Knoxville because three major interstate highways merge in about a 15 mile stretch there.

I did the drive in two days when the weather was hit-and-miss rain showers.

Thanks ya'll. To be honest, I was leaning towards the heading East to LA route. Thanks again. Be safe out there!!!
