Loading up the family and headed to Destin (from STL) this weekend. Have two options for routes and seeking any insight from members on items like road conditions, elevations, services along the way, etc..
would be I-55 South through Memphis, then cutting East on US 22 towards Birmingham.
would be to take 57 South to 24 East through to Nashville and then connect to I-65 South towards Birmingham
Once past Birmingham, the path is simple-to connect thorugh Montgomery and ultimately Destin (ahh... Destin
The kicker is that Im going to try and make the bulk of this travel at night time, hopefully with the kids asleep in the back.
Any experience driving either of the above routes?
Thanks in advance.
