We come from MI to FL and are there now. Our route is I69 south to Montgomery, AL then 231 through Dothan until I-10 East. Now you can go as far across and then south into Florida as you want. No real large cities and much flatter travel.

I have driven through Cinci many times and Atlanta a couple (neither recently). I find the best solution is to avoid rush hour traffic. Mid day is acceptable, just stick to the right.

If you really don't like traffic, get to major city BEFORE 6 AM. Drive straight through, do NOT take any bypass route.


Take it from someone that has been there done that all over the USA many many times. RULE 1 plan your drive for you not the destination. Going thru such nightmares like Atlanta, Chicago, Huston and I 75 in Florida in the afternoon. SUCK, drive for you. RULE 2 I drive long and hard starting in the early AM like 4AM. Heck by the time it is daylight I am over 300 miles down the road. The only downside is all the rest stop and Flying J's are full of truckers for the night. KEY to this is get off at a lightly populated exit then go right back on stopping on the shoulder just before entering the e-way. Last rule going into an unknown city on the e-way get behind a semi in the second land and hang tough. Those guys do their routes day in and out so they know what to do and when. I am 75 and been fighting the fight for over 45 years. Happy trails.

You are correct as I-69 turns into I-65 at Indy and then it is Montgomery. From MI we start on I-69
