Florida--Texas driving routes

Jump to last reply

We are moving home and have looked at several routes to get from Daytona Beach, FL to Dallas, TX. We will be driving a moving truck and car (separately, not towed) with 3 adults and a 1 yr old. We prefer "off the beaten path" routes to stay out of any heavy traffic and for better scenery. We've mapped out a path on either 90, 80, 84, or partway on 10 and then 20.

My questions are:
1. Any advice/thoughts on routes? (either the ones we are thinking of or any additional you can suggest)

2.Any suggestions for places to stay or eat along way?

3.Has anyone driven with a 1 yr old? Normally, we drive straight through (aside from gas and letting the dog out to "do her business"). How much stopping do you think we will need to do with a young toddler?

Thank you!
