We made many interesting stops on our trip to Florida and back. My mother lived south of Chicago and we found a route where we got off on 65 south of I 90/94. We drove back roads over to I57. Went past several nudist colonies on that route, but never stopped to sight see.Just sent you a PM that I looked on Expedia and jet blue has $570 roundtrip.
Sorry, I thought it was your dates but Expedia changes dates to what's available and it was a day early in both directions. In fact, did a couple more searches via United and Southwest and it looks like prices are much different going mid-week to mid-week. Instead of the days on the road you could have extra days in Florida exploring things you haven't seen before. This is when those free nights from credit cards (like Hyatt) come in handy.
We live in Plymouth, MI and drive to our timeshare in Palm Beach Shores, FL. I was going to say we don't use 75. Years ago I decided to make the days on the road part of the vacation. It changed my outlook on such a long drive. Our daughter found a route through Ohio that we like so much better. 23; 35; 77; 26; 95 to 75. Time on the road is comparable. There are tolls. The scenery is beautiful. We have regular stops for food, starting with the Whole Foods in Columbus. 3 hours from home, perfect time for brunch, hot bar, quick in an out with no waitress or kitchen hassles. We can buy snacks to get us through to next stop which is Tamarack in Beckley. Delicious food and their marketplace is an interesting art gallery. We generally spend the night in the area. Savannah is another 7-1/2 hours. Have nice dinner and spend the night. The rest of the trip is about 7 hours.
