Road Trip from Orlando to New Orleans

A vacation in the festive city of New Orleans is bound to be brilliant, and what better way to add to the fun than to take a road trip there? The journey from Orlando to New Orleans is the perfect Southern adventure, passing through Florida to Louisiana via Alabama and Mississippi, with the opportunity to visit some truly iconic towns and sights along the way.

The 640-mile road trip from Orlando to New Orleans takes 9 and a half hours, passing Tallahassee, Pensacola, Henderson Beach State Park, Mobile and Biloxi as you travel the scenic southern coastline. Alternatively, go inland to visit Columbus and Montgomery.

Are you ready to make this epic adventure from the Sunshine State to the iconic town of New Orleans? Keep reading to find out the best route, the places you can stay and the fabulous sights you'll pass along the way.

How far is New Orleans from Orlando, and how long will the road trip take?

The quickest route from Orlando to New Orleans via Mobile is 640 miles long and will take you up to 9 and a half hours of driving. You also have an alternative option which heads inland via Columbus and Montgomery. This slightly longer route takes around 12 hours to drive.

You could always just begin the trip before the sun comes up, stopping only for essentials, and complete your trip within a day. But then, if you were looking for the fastest way to New Orleans, it's probably easiest to just take a flight.

If a road trip is what you have in mind, it makes sense to stretch it out over at least a couple of days to truly soak in all this route has to offer.

You'll get to experience the sights of towns like Gainesville, Mobile, Biloxi and Tallahassee, and observe scenic landscapes at places like Henderson Beach and Rainbow Springs State Parks. You could even explore the wines of the South at the Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards along the way.

Whichever route you take, you'll need to add some time to enjoy a few detours to explore the famous landmarks and beautiful state parks along the way.

Both routes offer you plenty of places to stop at and discover, so your road trip from Orlando to New Orleans is sure to be an unforgettable one.

Best road trip route from Orlando to New Orleans

There are two distinct routes that you can take while on a road trip from Orlando to New Orleans. Both routes are primarily straightforward interstate drives, with diversions on state routes to explore local landmarks.

The faster of the two options is the 640-mile Southern Route via Mobile, Alabama, and takes around 9 hours 30 minutes. This route stays includes some stretches near the coast so you'll have the opportunity to explore the expansive beaches of the Gulf of Florida along the way.

Alternatively, you can make the trip via Columbus along the Northern Route, which adds about 135 miles and 2.5 hours of driving.

Your choice of route will probably come down to the amount of time you want to spend on the road, or whether you'd prefer to visit the inland cities ahead of the Florida coast. They're both very different drives though, so if you have a little extra time it's possible to go out on one route and back on the other to get the best of both.

How to drive from Orlando to New Orleans

The map above shows our suggestions for the best road trip routes between Orlando and New Orleans. Keep reading for detailed descriptions of both routes, where to stay on either, and the best things to do on the way.

The Southern Route

You'll begin your trip by leaving Orlando on Florida Route 408 West, then taking the exit onto Florida's Turnpike heading towards Ocala. You'll drive on this road for nearly 45 miles and pass by pear Park, Lake Denham, Three Flags RV Campground, and more.

Then, you'll merge with Interstate 75 North which will take you past landmarks like the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing, The Canyons Zip Line & Adventure Park, Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park (where you can go horseback riding), and other such attractions.

After about 100 miles, you'll take Exit 435 to merge with Interstate 10 West heading towards Tallahassee. You'll follow this road for most of the rest of your journey.

First you'll drive through Tallahassee, Defuniak Springs, and Pensacola. There are plenty of iconic beaches in reach of Pensacola if you fancy getting your feet wet. Then simply continue your journey along the interstate.

Alternatively, if you want to see a little more of the coast, you have the option of jumping of the interstate onto Route 331 before Pensacola, then joining Route 98 which takes you along the coast and through Destin before bringing you back to Pensacola to rejoin the main route on the I-10. This will add about an hour to your drive.

After Pensacola, continue along the interstate to enter Alabama, stopping at Mobile as you pass through to visit the USS Alabama.

After Mobile, the I-10 takes you across the short stretch of the Mississippi coastline. Here, you also have the option of pulling of the interstate to visit Biloxi, another stunning coastal town known for its iconic lighthouse and, unsurprisingly, more beautiful beaches.

After nearly 500 miles Interstate 10 will bring you to the into the charming state of Louisiana. Simply keep on the I-10 as it takes you right to the heart of New Orleans, home to iconic cuisines and vibrant celebrations.

The Northern Route

Leave Orlando via the same route, taking Florida's Turnpike onto Interstate 75 North, but instead of merging onto the I-10, continue along the I-75 as far as Tifton.

Here, you'll turn onto US Route 82 and follow it through Georgia before joining the Columbus Highway, GA-520, at Dawson. This road joins up with Route 280 at Richland, to take you as far as Columbus.

After stopping off in Columbus, join Route 80 heading west, which takes you to Interstate 85 after passing through Tuskegee National Forest.

Follow the I-85 until you reach Montgomery, another place that's worth a stop. Here, you can learn more about icons of modern US history including Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, as well as enjoying some true southern hospitality.

From Montgomery it's a very straightforward onward journey. Join Interstate 65 which takes you in the direction of Mobile, then merge onto the I-10 which leads you across Louisiana and into New Orleans.

Best places to stop between Orlando to New Orleans

If you choose to divide your trip into two to three days, there are some great places along the route to stay in and explore the sights.

Spend the night in Tallahassee

If you decide to break up your trip along the Southern Route into three days, one of the best places to stop along the way in Tallahassee.

Located approximately one-third of the way, you can even stop here if you begin your trip after a day of work, and want to rest before continuing the next day.

One of our favorite places to stay in the city is the Hyatt House Tallahassee Capitol University . Barely a 10-minute detour from the route, and located in the heart of the city, you'll find a warm welcome and comfortable rooms when you arrive.

You'll be within proximity of landmarks like the Museum of Florida History, the Black Archives Research Center & Museum, Knotts House Museum, Odyssey Science Center, Levy Park, then head out for a Southern meal at Railroad Craft House.

Or if you just want to kick back and relax, check out the hotel's pool and barbecue before getting a refreshing night's sleep.

Relax and Recharge in Columbus

If you're taking the Northern Route, the city of Columbus is exactly half way along your drive. It makes a great place to spend the first night of your journey, but not just because of its convenient location.

While you're in town you can take a trip out to Historic Westville, an authentic re-creation of a village in 19th Century Georgia, or visit one of the city's excellent museums. You're spoilt for choice, with the National Civil War Naval Museum, the Columbus Museum and the Coca Cola Space Science Center, among others.

The beautiful RiverWalk extends for miles out of the city - you don't have to walk the whole length of it to enjoy some stunning views and seek out some great food and drink options too.

If you're feeling active, you can walk or cycle along the Dragonfly Trail which follows the route of an abandoned rail line, or even join a white water rafting right in the center of the city.

Seeing as Columbus is a city that grew around the river, you'll want to stay near the waterfront while you're in town. Hotel Indigo - Columbus at Riverfront Place is a great option, with views out over the city .

Located right in the heart of the city, all the main sights are in walking distance, and you're right by the RiverWalk for when you want to head out for a meal or a drink at the end of your day on the road.

Explore the port city of Mobile

Whichever route you take, the charming port city of Mobile makes for a great stopover on the second night of your trip.

If you're taking the Southern Route the I-10 will bring you straight through the city, or if you're heading down the I-65 from Montgomery on the Northern Route, it's just a short hop back into Mobile.

There's plenty to see and do while you're in Mobile, with top attractions including the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park, Cooper Riverside Park, Mobile River, and Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center.

You could also tour the iconic Mobile Carnival Museum, which illustrates the city's age-old (and continuing) Mardi-Gras traditions.

Fort Conde Inn - Mobile is a well-priced and cozy hotel located close to the city's landmarks . You'll vacation in luxury in the charming, classically-adorned rooms

You can get your fill of authentic Alabama cuisine in the city, especially at well-known fine dining joint The Royal Scam, which is just a short walk away from the Fort Conde Inn - just be sure to leave space for the outstanding breakfast you'll be offered the next day.

Best time to go on a road trip from Orlando to New Orleans

Though you can make the road trip from Orlando to New Orleans at any point in the year, your holiday may turn out to be better in some months as compared to others.

Visiting New Orleans between February and May is considered the best idea as this is when the weather is pleasant (ranges between low 70s and mid-80s Fahrenheit).

This is also when the celebrations that the town is so famously known for are truly in full swing. Events like Mardi Gras, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the French Quarter Festival, and so many more all take place during this time of year.

New Orleans can be pretty crowded at this time of year though, and accommodation costs will shoot up, so an alternative is to plan your trip for December or January. Hotel rates will be low and crowds will be less of an issue.

Temperatures dip slightly in December and January, with average temperatures in the high 60s - depending on your preferences this might be a positive or a negative.

If you travel from June to November you'll find a chance of hurricanes along the Gulf Coast. From July until late-August in particular, harsh weather conditions make this a time to avoid if you can.

Florida to New Orleans Road Trip: Hidden Pleasures

  • by Donnamarie
  • February 17, 2022 July 14, 2023

shows the road to Sanibel from the passenger seat of a vehicle

A few years ago, my husband, Dan and I took a South Florida to New Orleans road trip for our anniversary. Originally, we wanted to return to Las Vegas where we honeymooned, but due to family obligations we decided to try a road trip. We spent 11 days on our drive, but only 4 were in New Orleans. We made sure we stopped every few hours and incorporated additional destinations along the way. Hence our love affair with road tripping began.

If you are wondering what are some good weekend road trip ideas in Florida, you can pick and choose stops from our Florida to New Orleans road trip to create your own mini road trips. Of course, if you want more action you can head to Miami for South Beach or the central Florida theme parks, but we like exploring off the beaten path. Make sure to pack the essentials to make for a smoother trip.

Where Can I Find...?

Day 1 Road Trip to Tampa

shows the first stop on our road trip, Sanibel Beach

Stop in Sanibel

We left South Florida for the gulf coast on a Saturday around 8 am with our Dodge minivan packed to the brim. After driving 2 1/2 hours, we stopped in Sanibel. We dressed in our bathing suits prior to leaving the house, and now we went swimming and relaxed on the beach. Before we left home, we packed some sandwiches which we took out for a picnic lunch. After eating, time for a quick swim, then back on the road.

Ybor City, Tampa: First night on our Florida to New Orleans road trip

A 2 1/2 hour drive later, we arrived in Tampa. We tried to check in to the Hilton Garden Inn , in Ybor City, but our room wasn’t ready. While waiting we soaked in the Jacuzzi and swam in the pool since we were still wearing our bathing suits. After a hot shower, we were ready for an evening out.

Ybor City, known for its Cuban influence, houses Florida’s oldest restaurant. The Columbia Restaurant opened in 1905. The family still uses many of the same authentic recipes today. Upon entering the restaurant, one is transported back into Havana in its heyday. With hand painted tiles and lavish decor, the Columbia holds 15 dining rooms. We reserved a table for two at 7pm in the main dining room to watch a traditional Flamenco Show. We shared a large dish of Paella to save room for dessert. Afterwards we browsed the attached shop for authentic Spanish wares. There are other locations for this restaurant, but the original is the only location with the Flamenco dancers.

After dinner, we browsed numerous bars and shops on the way back to our hotel. This was a romantic stop on our Florida to New Orleans drive.

Day 2 Florida to New Orleans Road Trip, Romantic Cedar Key

Sunday morning we walked to Tampa Bay Brewing Company . We sampled various beers and then took a tour. Our travel guide educated us on the beer making process. Of course, we bought a six pack and some specialty glasses before we left.

After checking out of our hotel, we headed out on our Tampa to New Orleans drive. After about 2 1/2 hours we arrived in romantic Cedar Key , our next destination. We ate some sandwiches on the way. Once in Cedar Key we stopped off at Robinson’s Seafood to pick up some fresh fish to cook for dinner and then drove to our condo on the Gulf for the night.

Day 3 Road Trip to Marianna

Day 3 of our road trip, a stop at Dakota Winery in Chiefland

Dakota Winery, Chiefland

After leaving Cedar Key, we drove approximately half an hour before arriving at Dakota Winery. After picnicking in our car, we took a tour of the winery and participated in a wine tasting. Obviously the wine was good because we bought a mixed case to take with us! The winery sold additional merchandise such as coasters, seasonings, various flavored vinegars and oils, etc. We purchased some wine glasses and a bottle opener to go wine our case of wine.

Florida Caverns State Park, Marianna

view inside the caverns at Florida Caverns State Park, our day 3 road trip stop

Three hours driving in the rain and we reached Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna. Thursday through Monday, the park offers cave tours. We viewed cave formations such as stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, flowstone, soda straws, columns, and rimstone pools. After our spelunking expedition, it was time to set up our tent. We then cooked up some hot dogs on the campsite grill and heated up our leftover fish from the night before on grill mats that we purchased on Groupon.

Day 4, Road Trip to Biloxi

First stop, destin.

tour florida e louisiana

We woke up early, packed up our gear, and hit the road. Breakfast consisted of the usual yogurt, fruit, or a cereal bar while driving. Since this was a romantic trip, we opted to avoid more popular places like Panama City Beach and Orlando and travel to smaller towns instead. Our goal was to drive to Destin for the morning session of parasailing. However, the morning was booked. Since we left Marianna before 8am and had less than a two hour drive, we were left with some time to kill before parasailing in the afternoon. A quick consult with Trip Advisor , and we located an old time photo shop. We passed the morning dressing up in western gear. I looked like something out of a burlesque show. Of course we bought the souvenir photos.

With still more time to kill, we wandered over to Emerald Coast Olive Oil in a nearby shopping plaza. We have been to many wine tastings but have never heard of an olive oil tasting until this. After tasting several olive oils including samples infused with rosemary, garlic, and cilantro, we made some purchases. Then we used the last of our sandwich meat to make our lunch and drove to Wet n Wild Water Sports.

Parasailing during our Florida to New Orleans road trip

Photo of two people parasailing during a Florida to new Orleansroad trip

We found the marina where Wet n Wild Water Sports was located. After signing a waiver, we boarded the boat. There were about ten people including the captain and first mate. The captain went into details about what to expect from the experience. I was very nervous because I am afraid of heights. A scared 10 year old boy went up with his parent before us. After I saw the exhilarated look on his face once he came down, I couldn’t wait for my turn.

Dan and I got into the tandem harness and slowly ascended into the clouds. I have only experienced that kind of peace one other time, and that was while flying in a hot air balloon in Arizona. Sadly, what goes up, must come down. This experience only lasts about 15 minutes before your legs start going numb from the pressure of the harness. I plan on doing this again.

Afterwards, we drove past Pensacola Beach, and out of our state, continuing our road trip from south Florida to New Orleans.

Stop at the Hardrock Casino, Biloxi along the Destin to New Orleans road trip

tour florida e louisiana

Three hours later, we arrived in Biloxi. We checked into the Hardrock Hotel and Casino , ate some leftover hotdogs in our room, and sadly fell asleep from exhaustion by 9pm. Determined not to miss out on the hotel experience, we perused the memorabilia displayed in the lobby prior to checking out.

Day 5 Road Trip to New Orleans

Road Trip Stop at a random beach between Biloxi and New Orleans. Photo shows high water levels from previous hurricanes reaching the second story of a building

Initially, we planned a shrimp boat expedition in Biloxi. However, it turns out that a home school group booked a field trip that day so we were unable to go. Disappointed, we left Biloxi. With no back up plan, we started driving to New Orleans for the 1 1/2 hours left. Along the way we stopped at one of the beaches to swim and picnic on our leftover hot dogs again. Interestingly, the building at the beach had signs posting the high water marks from previous hurricanes.

Arrival in New Orleans

Shows the front of the New Orleans Museum of Modern Art, our final road trip destination

We arrived too early to check into our hotel. Fortunately, we checked with New Orleans Tourism and found the New Orleans Museum of Art . After exploring the museum and sculpture gardens we had a small picnic on the sprawling front lawn. Then we checked into The Royal St. Charles Hotel in the French Quarter. We found this hotel through Groupon for a reasonable price. We did have to pay for Valet Parking, but that also was reasonable. Situated on St. Charles Avenue, we were able to walk or take the streetcar almost everywhere. That night we boarded the Steamboat Nachez for a dinner and jazz cruise.

Day 6 Soaking up the History and Culture

Shows the front view of The Oak Alley Plantation during our road trip down historic River Road to visit several old homes

We spent 4 days in New Orleans

Road Trip to River Road Plantations

First we ordered a muffeletta from the famous Central Grocery . Then we drove out of town, down River Road to visit several plantations. The amount of plantations can be overwhelming so research before you go to pick the ones that interest you the most. We chose Destrehan Manor House , Oak Alley Plantation, and the San Francisco Plantation . Plantation tours can be a bit pricey, but you can download the Trip Advisor app or go through New Orleans Tourism to get a deal by booking a group of tours together. Oak Alley has a beautiful lawn and picnic area where we ate our muffeleta and drank our mint juleps, which we purchased at the stand outside the plantation. One of the larger plantations, it houses a restaurant and an option to stay the night.

Bourbon Street

After a day strolling plantations, we were ready to hit Bourbon Street. Just to let you know, I will not be giving you the scoop on trendy bars. In short, frozen mixes out of a machine don’t cut it for me. I prefer a classic, and New Orleans is just the place for that. So we opted for The Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone . We had to wait for a seat at the actual bar, but it was well worth it. The bar itself rotates and is a replica of a carousel. Certainly, this makes a great place to try a Sazerac, a traditional New Orleans cocktail made with Rye, Absinthe, a sugar cube, and bitters.

Next, we strolled Bourbon Street to experience the culture. Subsequently, we took refuge in a small side bar that served basic mixed drinks and beer. Live music radiated from the band just inside the entrance. Meanwhile, we found seats at the bar and enjoyed some bourbon, while hanging out with the locals.

Day 7 Rum and Ghosts

French Market and Road Trip to Rum Distillery

Today, we walked to the French Market while waiting for our ride to the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery , located outside the city center. While waiting, we browsed the large selection of foods and bought some souvenirs. Then our tour guide picked us up and we went to the distillery for a tour and some samplings. In the end, we left with several bottles of rum and a bottle of Gingeroo, a bottle of ginger beer created on the premises.

Death and Ghosts

After returning from our rum adventure, we explored the French Quarter further. As a result, we stumbled upon the Museum of Death . Highlights include serial killer artwork, crime scene photos, mortician and coroner instruments, and Manson family memorabilia.

part of a ghost tour on our Florida to new Orleans road trip

After that we embarked on a History and Ghost Busters Tour of the French Quarter. It was a walking tour lasting about 90 minutes. Subsequently, our guide imparted her knowledge of the bloody history of New Orleans. To clarify, this included murders, tortures, fires, and voodoo curses. Most importantly, we stopped at a historic bar halfway through the tour to wet our whistles. In addition, the tour ended at the oldest bar in New Orleans.

Day 8, Mardi Gras and Death

shows a parade float sculpture of Marilyn Monroe

Mardi Gras World

We started the day by taking the streetcar to Mardi Gras World . This place gives birth to parade floats. Initially, the artists sketch out their designs. Then they form their ideas in Styrofoam. Lastly, they breathe life into them through paint. During the tour we explored the warehouse filled with hundreds of these sculptures and learned the history of the parades and the process to enter one. Also, we had plenty of photo ops posing with the sculptures.

The Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery

After touring Mardi Gras World, we boarded the streetcar and set off for the Garden District. Once there we explored Lafayette Cemetery and listened to a tour guide discuss the history of this setting and explain why the tombs are above ground.

Next we were ready to eat. We strolled Magazine Street looking for a cafe. Of course, many of them had crowds sprawling out onto the sidewalk. We walked a little further to find a quieter place where we ordered a couple of Sazaracs, the traditional drink of New Orleans, and an appetizer. Then we spent the afternoon perusing the shops and the architecture of the old homes.

Back in the French Quarter

Upon returning to the French Quarter, Dan and I walked to Jax Brewery where we ordered some dinner and drinks at the bar facing the street. Interestingly enough, a parade went by. Needless to say, I ran out to grab some beads to bring home to my kids as souvenirs.

After dinner we stumbled upon Voodoo Authentica while exploring local shops. As you can imagine, potions, powders, and candles lined the shelves. We bought some candles and then picked up additional souvenirs at some other touristy shops.

Day 9 Road Trip to Florida Panhandle

Time to say goodbye to this magical city and head out on our road trip from New Orleans to Florida. We had less then a 4 hour drive for today’s part of the trip from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale. However, we had time to kill since we couldn’t check into our hotel until 4pm. Initially, we planned to go shrimping in Mobile. However, a this time a boy scout troupe filled the whole boat so we went with plan B.

Road Trip to Mobile and the U.S.S. Alabama

Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, a stop on our Florida to new Orleans road trip

Instead we stopped at the U.S.S. Alabama . After a picnic lunch of peanut butter and jelly, the only food we had left, we explored the park. Highlights included memorials to Alabama’s veterans of WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, and 911. Similarly, a memorial stood commending the canines which have served the military.

Once inside the U.S.S. Alabama we walked through a brief museum and then took a guided tour of the ship. If you are claustrophobic, do not take this tour. To clarify, we spent much of the time walking through small corridors and climbing through hatches.

During the tour our guide pointed out the fine points of the ship. We peered through doorways to glimpse the galley, office, and bunk rooms. In addition we saw the engine room and the torpedo bay. After climbing through what seemed like miles of corridors and ladders we reached fresh air. We toured several decks before climbing back inside and finishing the tour.

Ft. Walton Beach: Heading back on our Florida to New Orleans road trip

After all that walking we were ready to get back in the car and continue our journey from New Orleans to Fort Lauderdale. We checked in to the Wyndham Garden Hotel . Immediately we changed into our bathing suits and headed to the tiki bar. Dan and I lounged in the pool while sipping our tropical drinks. Amenities at this hotel included beach chairs, kayaks, crafts for kids, and bicycles. We wished we had time to stay more than one night.

Afterwards we crossed the boardwalk and strolled the beach. At first, we saw people pointing across the water yelling “Shark”, but it turned out to be some playful dolphins. Nearby, a couple said their wedding vows while the sun turned orange in the evening sky. Moreover, we watched some beach goers kite surfing. As the sun set we returned to the hotel to eat dinner at the restaurant.

Located on the first floor, our room opened onto the pool deck. Inside we had a king size bed, mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Perfect for storing our leftovers. Of course we couldn’t resist a swim after dinner. We spent the evening back and forth between the pool and Jacuzzi. Then it was time for bed to rest up for our long drive the next day.

Day 10 Road Trip to Deland

This morning started off with a quick swim, as we had a six hour drive ahead of us on this portion of our Florida to New Orleans road trip. We ate breakfast bars in the car. Then we stopped at a rest stop about half way for lunch. Once again we ate peanut butter and jelly on a picnic bench and stretched our legs. Normally, I schedule an activity to break up the drive after 3 hours. But today we just wanted to reach our final destination. This day’s drive was the most tedious portion of our Ft. Lauderdale to New Orleans road trip.

By the time we arrived in Deland, we were starving. We checked in at our hotel and headed out to get some food. We settled on Santorini Greek Cuisine after eating Creole food for the last several days. Nothing like stuffed grape leaves! Then we took a walking tour of the town. A town known for being artsy, many buildings display murals on their walls.

Sadly, we arrived in the evening so we didn’t get a chance to explore all this town has to offer. Highlights include the black light room at the Gillespie Museum of Minerals. Also, at Primitive Expressions you can learn to play the didgeridoo. Then don’t forget to get a personalized love potion at Merlin’s Vision.

The Artisan Inn; Last night on our Florida to New Orleans road trip

tour florida e louisiana

Most importantly, we booked a romantic suite at the Artisan Inn . Since 1924 this historic hotel changed hands many times and was abandoned during the 1980’s. The Soety brothers began restoring it in 1996, and it underwent 5 years of restoration. Now the hotel boasts 8 suites, a restaurant, and a lounge. Paintings by local artists decorate the walls.

We booked one of the larger suites. The foyer housed a wet bar complete with wine glasses and wine. Underneath was a mini fridge. Above the bar hung a small shelf with classic literature. As we sipped our wine lounging on the couch in the sitting room, I read the Legend of Sleepy Hollow aloud to my husband. Then on to a soak in the large Jacuzzi tub in the bath.

Day 11 Road Trip Back to South Florida

Before heading the rest of the 840 miles Florida to New Orleans road trip distance, we had one more stop.

De Leon Springs State Recreation Area

tour florida e louisiana

We stopped in De Leon Springs State Recreation Area for breakfast. The Old Spanish Sugar Mill stands in the recreation area from days gone by and is now a restaurant. We arrived around 10am, and there was still a long wait. While waiting we browsed the nearby educational area and watched people swimming and paddle boating.

Finally, we were seated. Here the tables have a griddle built into the center. The server bring out two pitchers of pancake mix, regular and multi grain. Additionally you can order mixins. We chose blueberries which were brought in a separate bowl. If you want eggs, they will be brought to you to cook as well. However, meat products are cooked in the kitchen. Then you cook your food on your table. At first my husband thought this a strange idea. But after trying it, he acknowledged that it was great fun. Of course you can always order a burger from the kitchen, but then you miss the fun.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. We had to return home to our daily lives. Until next time when we get to continue exploring the road.

While we traveled to New Orleans from South Florida, you can always make the trip from the opposite direction. Head from Arizona and make stops in New Mexico and Texas a long the way.

Looks and sounds like a great road trip to New Orleans. Thanks for some fantastic ideas.

This would be a great road trip to take. There are so many great stops to make along the way! I love Fort Walton Beach — so beautiful! And seeing all the old Mardi Gras floats would be fun!

Great itinerary for a road trip from Florida to New Orleans. I like it, that there are a lot of breweries and wineries along the way, that are also open for tasting. But I am not sure, if I would want to drive after a tasting, let alone thinking about the fact, that I have to drive afterwards, during a tasting.

Ciao a tutti,

come già scrissi la prossima estate 2018 abbiamo deciso (siamo in 2!) di fare un viaggio on the road in Florida, l'anno scorso abbiamo attraversato California - Arizona - Utah e Nevada ed è stata un esperienza incredibile!

Ho letto vari post e letto vari diari e guide e da quanto ho potuto capire c'è tantissimo da vedere, per questo chiedo a chi già ha visitato questo stato quale itinerario mi consigliate considerando che vorremmo "infilarci" dentro New Orleans, visto che non credo ritorneremo in zona ed è una città che vogliamo visitare e considerando che ad Orlando vogliamo visitare soltanto Disney World e al massimo gli Universal Studio quindi non più di 2 giorni.

Vi ringraziamo in anticipo, sperando che con i vostri consigli riusciamo ad avere le idee più chiare!

Ah... dimenticavo

i giorni a disposizione saranno 15 (escluso i voli)

' class=

Ciao Gerardo,

mi sembra di ricordare che qualche mese fa avevi già scritto nel forum riguardo questo tuo itinerario, ed io ero in fase di preparazione di un viaggio che oltre alla Florida, aveva come meta anche New Orleans fino al Texas.

Sono stato nelle zone che tu vorresti visitare tra Marzo ed Aprile, e posso dirti che ne vale veramente la pena!

Sia la parte del Panhandle, poco conosciuto dai viaggiatori italiani, passando per Mobile e il sud del Mississippi. Ma è la Louisiana (New Orleans e non solo), che mi ha davvero colpito in tante cose.

Se hai bisogno di consigli, o ti serve qualsiasi cosa per avere degli spunti per l'organizzazione del tuo viaggio, fammi sapere!

si, hai ragione. Diciamo che ci siamo convinti del tutto!!!

Se posso, tu quale itinerario hai seguito?

noi però avevamo 31 giorni, e la Florida, che avevamo già visitato bene in un viaggio precedente l'ho lasciata per tappe piuttosto veloci.

Pur eliminando la parte Texas che ho fatto in questo viaggio, se per voi è la prima volta in Florida, servono diversi giorni anche per queste zone.

Ti dico le tappe che abbiamo fatto noi:

1 notte a Miami (se per voi è la prima volta in città secondo me ne servirebbero almeno 3, compresa una buona visita della zona Fort Lauderdale - Palm Beach)

1 notte Daytona Beach (in zona merita anche St.Augustine)

1 notte Tallahassee

1 notte Mobile

3 notti New Orleans (ma ne avrei volentieri aggiunte altre)

Poi abbiamo proseguito per Lafayette (una zona stupenda con molto da vedere), e per il Texas,

ritornando dal Nord Louisiana e Mississippi.

Tappe che ho fatto, e che possono interessare il tuo itinerario, sono state:

1 notte Gulfport/Biloxi

1 notte Pensacola (stupenda la zona del Panhandle)

1 notte Apalachicola (piuttosto monotona la parte che passa poi all'interno e fino a Tampa)

3 notti Tampa (bellissima zona secondo me)

1 notte Ft.Myers

1 notte Naples

La parte costiera del Golfo del Messico, da Clearwater a St.Pete Beach, Sarasota e Siesta Key, Sanibel e Captiva, e Naples... è a mio parere quella più bella a livello di mare.

Se è la prima volta in Florida dovreste anche aggiungere una visita alle Keys (non necessariamente solo Key West, che è anche fin troppo turistica).

Servono davvero tanti giorni per vedere tutto, e non è facile tagliare anche solo uno di questi posti!!

Prova a fare qualche ricerca, vedi cosa può interessarti di più, e poi in base alle preferenze si può vedere l'itinerario.

Se hai bisogno di altre informazioni in generale fammi sapere!

Grazie mille Simo,

gran bel viaggio hai fatto!!!

Io avevo pensato di toccare solo la costa occidentale della Florida proprio perchè in molti dicono che a livello di mare è la parte che merita di più, secondo te della costa orientale c'è una tappa da aggiungere a tutti i costi?

si, davvero un viaggio che mi ha entusiasmato! non pensavo di incontrare zone che mi colpissero così tanto, e invece la cucina, l'ambiente, i paesaggi, le città... davvero da non perdere, in particolare la Louisiana!

Come tappe sulla parte occidentale della costa io ti consiglio sicuramente Miami perché vale una visita, poi tutta la parte di costa fino a Palm Beach passando da Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton e altre località, e più a nord la zona di Daytona Beach e St.Augustine, che è una piccola cittadina storica che vale davvero la pena vedere.

Questo però anche in base alle vostre preferenze e in base ai tempi che avrete una volta pensato l'itinerario.

Ciao, noi volevamo fare un giro arrivando in aereo a new orleans, passando per mississipi, georgia, florida per poi finire con qualche giorno in un'isola e riposo totale. abbiamo 20 giorni circa la fine luglio/prima metà di agosto. Ci sapreste dire un'ipotesi di percorso, che tocchi zone caratteristiche e magari delle chicche carine (ad esempio St.Augustine ci piace l'idea..) grazie mille!

Ciao Frapsy,

sono tutti bellissimi luoghi, ma il periodo in cui avete in mente di andarci è tra i meno indicati dell’anno. Nel periodo estivo aumenta l’umidità, e il rischio di piogge intense o fenomeni estremi, aumenta di parecchio.

Detto questo, la Louisiana merita molto, New Orleans è una stupenda città, nei pressi avete modo di visitare anche diversi luoghi naturali, risalendo il Mississippi potete visitare diverse piantagioni, arrivando fino a Baton Rouge o risalendo fino a Natchitoches. Verso Ovest invece c’è la zona di Lafayette, anche in questo caso piena di luoghi interessanti (e, come in tutta la Louisiana, è terra di una cucina ottima).

Spostandovi nel Mississippi ci sono Vicksburg, Jackson, il Natchez Trail, e più a Sud le località costiere di Gulfport e Biloxi. In Georgia si possono visitare almeno Atlanta e Savannah (da non perdere), ma proseguendo verso la Florida c’è da decidere se fare un percorso che comprenda il Panhandle (più o meno Pensacola, Destin, Panama City, Tallahassee, Apalachicola), o che sia invece orientato sulla costa Atlantica (St.Augustine, Daytona Beach e proseguendo fino a Miami).

La Florida, per quanto riguarda mare e spiagge a mio parere ha il suo meglio sul Golfo del Messico, dove non perderei la costa tra Clearwater, Madeira Beach, e St.Pete Beach, e più a Sud, tra Siesta Key, Sanibel, Captiva e Naples. Tra le città includerei Miami, Tampa, e St.Petersburg, e se possibile una visita alle Keys (non necessariamente solo la molto turistica Key West).

Per un giro del genere, 20 giorni possono essere appena sufficienti o pochi, dipende da quanto velocemente si vuole fare il tutto. Io ho avuto a disposizione un mese, e già così in alcuni punti è stato piuttosto tirato, ma in più ho visitato anche parte del Texas. Se però l’intenzione è di arrivare a New Orleans, e rientrare ad esempio da Miami, questo aiuta sicuramente nei tempi.

Per ogni informazione relativa a queste zone, o consigli vari, scrivi pure! Spero intanto di averti dato alcuni primi spunti utili.

The Ultimate Road Trip: Gulf Coast

You’ll be taking the  scenic route  via  route 90  and route 98 from  New Orleans , Louisiana all the way to South Walton, Florida.

Day 1: Louisiana

If you have a  few days to spend in New Orleans , have a look at our  city guide  or check out some family-friendly  ideas.  Make a quick stop for breakfast and/or coffee at  Satsuma Café  on your way out of town. Stay in for the  Mexican Breakfast Plate , or take the  Green Breakfast Sandwich to go.  (Or revisit your favorite donut place.)

Hotels & Vacation Rentals - White Castle

Day 2: mississippi and alabama.

Before Hurricane Katrina, the Mississippi Gulf Coast was one of the largest casino markets in the US. After the catastrophic  destruction of the water-based casinos in the Hurricane , the  Mississippi Gaming Commission  decided to rebuild the casinos on land.  The Silver Slipper Casino  was the first casino built on the ground in Mississippi, and pays  homage to legacy of the famous Vegas casino of the same name  which closed in the 80s. Make a stop and try your luck at the table games or in the high limit salon.

Hotels & Vacation Rentals - Mobile

Day 3: alabama & florida.

Do you ever think about the connection between athletic competition and artistic expression? Did you even know there was such a thing as “sport art”? In Daphne, Alabama, on the  United States Sports Academy  campus, you can visit the  American Sport Art Museum  and find out all about it.  Their collection has more than 1,000 pieces and is believed to be the  largest collection of sport art  in the US, and possibly the world. Visit the museum any weekday (it’s closed on weekends).  Bonus: it’s free!

Powerball winning numbers for Monday night's drawing, with jackpot now at $214 million

tour florida e louisiana

The  Powerball jackpot  for the next drawing on Monday has climbed to $214 million after there was no jackpot winner in Saturday's drawing.

The numbers will be chosen just after 11 p.m. ET Monday, and we'll have the results below.

If there is a winner on Monday and they choose the  cash option , they could go home with an estimated $105.7 million, according to the lottery.

Here are the winning numbers for the Feb. 5 drawing.

Powerball winning numbers: 2/5/2024

The winning numbers for Monday night's drawing were 1, 2, 27, 30, and 67. The Powerball was 9 and the Power Play was 5X.

Winning lottery numbers are sponsored by  Jackpocket, the official digital lottery courier of the USA TODAY network . 

Did anyone win the Powerball last night?

Check back Tuesday morning to see if there were any winners.

What are the odds of winning the Powerball?

It's understandable that some lottery players are enticed by a big jackpot, but it's essential to keep in mind that the chances of winning Powerball's top prize are exceedingly slim.

  • The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are about one in 292.2 million.
  • The overall odds of winning a Powerball prize (across all tiers) are about one in 24.9.  

How do I win the Powerball jackpot?

To  participate in the Powerball game , players can purchase a ticket for $2 per play. The game requires players to choose five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls, and one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball. Alternatively, players can opt to receive random numbers.

In order to win the jackpot, it is necessary to match the numbers for all of the five white balls and the red Powerball.

In addition to the grand prize, Powerball offers eight other ways to win based on the number of matched balls in the non-jackpot tiers.

The non-jackpot prizes offered range from $4 to $1 million. By paying an additional $1, you can choose to participate in "Powerplay" that increases non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four, five or 10 times.

According to Powerball, the 10X Powerplay option is exclusively applicable to jackpots worth $150 million or less. Additionally, the game's "Match 5" prize for the second-tier is limited to a maximum of $2 million if the Powerplay feature is utilized.

An additional add-on feature called "Double Play," which gives players another chance to match their numbers after each Powerball drawing, is available in some jurisdictions for $1 per play.

Where can you buy lottery tickets?

Tickets can be purchased in person at gas stations, convenience stores and grocery stores. Some airport terminals may also sell lottery tickets.

You can also order tickets online through  Jackpocket, the official digital lottery courier of the USA TODAY Network , in these U.S. states and territories: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Texas, Washington D.C. and West Virginia. The Jackpocket app allows you to pick your lottery game and numbers, place your order, see your ticket and collect your winnings all using your phone or home computer.

Usher announces post-Super Bowl North American tour, ‘Past Present Future’

FILE - Singer Usher sings during a rehersal to honor the late Kobe Bryant prior to an NBA game...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — After two years of his popular Las Vegas residency at Park MGM, releasing his first solo  album in eight years , and headlining the  2024 Super Bowl  halftime show, Usher will embark on a North American tour.

The R&B-pop icon will embark on his 24-city “Past Present Future” tour beginning Aug. 20 at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. It will hit many major cities in North America before concluding in Chicago at United Center on Oct. 29.

The tour will also hit Baltimore; Boston; Philadelphia; Toronto; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Detroit; Denver; Los Angeles; Oakland, Calif.; Dallas; Austin, Texas; Miami; Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C. and St. Louis.

According to a press release, general ticket sales will begin Monday at 10 a.m. local time at  LiveNation.com . A Citi and Verizon presale begins Wednesday. No openers have been announced.

Usher will take on the Super Bowl on Sunday at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. He has performed there once before — as a guest appearance with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am in 2011.

“I got a chance to see a bit of what it felt like,”  Usher told  The Associated Press in a recent interview. In  his first Super Bowl performance , he descended from the stadium ceiling to perform “OMG” in Arlington, Texas.

Sharing is caring!

sometimes the journey is just as important as the destination

When I write travel posts, I always share specific destinations: parks, farms, museums, restaurants. And if I were flying to specific cities, that would make sense. But we are a family of road trippers, so to honor that, I want to share some of the little stops we made driving from Florida to Louisiana over winter break.

Our first stop was in New Tampa, about 4 hours from our house. This is where my sister lives, and we spent Christmas Day with her. The next day, we drove to Clearwater Beach. Here are two pictures from that portion of our road trip.

From Tampa, we drove to Tallahassee, the state capital. I had not been there since high school, so the kids had never seen the capital. We drove around the downtown area, took a nice walk, and enjoyed dinner at Harry’s, a cajun restaurant. We don’t take too many family selfies, so this was a special one!

From Tallahassee, we headed west. This is a VERY long stretch of road from Tallahassee to New Orleans on the I-10. Normally I really love just being in the car for road trips, but this did get a little boring. We stopped a few times to make the adventure fun! Our first stop was Ponce de Leon Springs. It was overcast {and a little drizzly} which actually made for beautiful photo opportunities. The trees and water were both amazing.

Our next stop was lunch in Mobile, Alabama. We had never been to Alabama so this was a new state to add to our on-going list. We need to visit at least the 48 continental states. I believe I’m at 25 states now. Anyway, we had lunch at a restaurant right on the water, and I was able to get these quick pictures of the rocks, grass, and the ocean peeking through.

As we continued west, I decided it would be fun to stop in Biloxi, Mississippi. I knew little about this area, other than it had lots of hotels and casinos. When it comes to casinos I prefer sitting at home and playing caesars online game , you may not know this but playing at home from an online casino like the online casino real money singapore is so much better then going to a real one. What intrigued me at first was that there’s an actual portion of the highway that drives directly over the shore. I had never seen this before! We decided to check out the beach, and am I glad we did. It was so amazing. I could not get enough photographs of the beauty in front of me. We also played some judi online , with our family members.

This is exactly why we road trip. Beyond the overall savings {and Richard’s fear of flying}, we enjoy the unexpected. We never really know where we will stop on our journey. We never really know exactly when we will reach our destination. But we have amazing adventures along the way: new tastes, new sights, new experiences. Enjoying family time together.
