Best Route from Dallas to Destin???


We're leaving for Destin this Saturday and are debating the northern and southern routes. Anyone done one or the other recently? Any comments or suggestions? Having never driven either, I'm at a loss. Thanks.

Last time we went we took 20 to Shreveport then 49 down to 10 and across. We are planning to do the same this year. A friend took this route last month and said the roads were good....no construction problems.

The previous poster has given you the best route in my opinion. There is also a Mississippi route, but I believe that the Louisiana route seems to go faster, and I also think it is a more interesting drive.

We live in the Dallas area and have done both routes. I prefer the Mississippi route - we have always made better time that way and the roads are not small until you get close to Mobile.
