The second day of the PapiBlogger Family Road Trip took us on a nearly 11 hour, 590 mile long drive from St. Augustine to New Orleans.
Although driving through the whole of Florida, as we have, is the most dullest driving you will ever do because it’s almost fully flat, parts of northern Florida near Tallahassee actually have scenic hills. When going through Alabama on your way to New Orleans, you’ll want to have the kids awake to see the underwater tunnel in Mobile (always cool) and if you have a couple moments you’ll also want to pitstop in Alabama to see Alabama Battleship Memorial Park. We didn’t have time to pause more than we already did for food (we had a terrific meat lover’s stop at Sonny’s BBQ in Marianna, FL) but if we did we would have also added the still unspoiled beaches of Pensacola. I stopped there once 20 years ago during another drive to New Orleans and remember being captivated by it’s white beaches.
