We drove straight through Atlanta last February. It was noon on a Monday, and at the slowest point, we we travelling at 45 mph. I would vote for midday, straight through. It seems that the bypasses can get clogged with suburban traffic.

O-k, Nick. Tell us why, if you are from the other side of the pond, do you go to MinnieNoPlace before going to Florida? I bet Northworst even flies direct to one of them gater cities from Europe.
Just curious.

MN to FL Route

I have driven this route many times as wife is from Western North Dakota & we live in Tennessee. We trailer horses from TN to the Ocala, FL area frequently.

From Minneapolis I 94 Thru Wisconsin to Madison. I90 from there to Rockford, IL. I39 to Bloomington, IL. I74 to Champaign, IL. I57 South to I24 (just S. of Marion, IL). I24 (East) Thru Nashville to Chattanooga, TN. I75 to Gainesville, FL. No muss No fuss just Atlanta. From 10 am to 2 pm right down the middle, but pay attention to traffic radio....use west bypass as an alternate.

JB, my son has married a Savage girl. We go to MN to see two of our 6 granddaughters, then go to FL to thaw out, returning to the UK in April to hug our other 4 granddaughters. A complicated world!

Do any of you kind folks have some tips for passing north through Atlanta on a Sunday, in particular the 25th of this month? Straight through, or the bypasses? Any times to avoid? Any big events, like sports events, to avoid? Thanks.
Nick.

At any time other than rush hour I'd head straight through. The outer bypasses can be a mess at any time of the day. I've had good luck with the straight through.
Even if you get into traffic the route is shorter so it will work out anyway.

Us 63

US 63 -

US 52 out of the twin City's Pick up US 63 @ Rochester. Follow US 63 to Memphis. I-55 out of Memphis to US 82. Follow US-82 to Tifton GA where you pickup I-75. You pretty much miss all the crap and have good roads.

Atlanta on a Sunday was clear through the middle on I75, so thanks for the advice. The trip north to Minnesota was especially fast when travelling through Illinois as I knew that all the State Troopers were at the Blues Brothers' concert.
