Hi we are planning a trip where we will end a cruise in Fort Lauderdale and need to get to Dallas for the flight home to Sydney Australia. Can anyone give me advice on what the drive would be like from Miami to Dallas, in respect to the time it would take, how many overnights needed, and overall what type of scenery would you expect to see. I see that it is approximately a 19 hour trip all up so I was thinking 2 overnights. I notice that you could maybe go via New Orleans. What towns would you recommend stopping and about how many hours driving over 2-3 days. We enjoy driving trips but really like to know if the scenic value of the trip would make it worthwhile. Otherwise what is the best airline to take, we don't really do cheapie flights, so would want a good and reliable airline.
I have also posted this on the Miami forum but thought I might find a different perspective for those who may have travelled from Texas.
