Enjoy your cross-country trip!
Below is the best route from Florida to Washington state:
  • Get on I-4 E
  • Take Florida’s Turnpike, I-75 N, I-24 W, I-57 N, and I-90 W to SD-34 W in North Lawrence
  • Get on I-90 W/US-212 W/US-87 N in Crow Agency
  • Follow I-90 W to Grant County
  • Take Exit 151 from I-90 W
  • Follow White Trail Road (WA-28 W) and US-2 W to Winton Rd in Chelan County
The total trip will be about 3,062 miles without detours, for a total driving time of 46 hours under typical traffic conditions.
Since this is a multi-day drive, we’ve also included some tips to help you prepare for your trip.
  • Stay well rested — Split your trip into segments, such as by state, to give yourself time to explore and rest.
  • Pack water and snacks — Some parts of your trip will be quite a long drive before you reach a stop.
  • Book your car in for maintenance — Check your car to see if it needs tuning up and fill up any fluids and gas before leaving.
  • Look up gas stations and rest stops — Prepare for any emergency and unscheduled stops.
  • Prepare your favorite tunes — The most memorable trips are usually the ones where you can jam out to the best tracks.
Finally, make sure your car insurance coverage is sufficient. Having roadside assistance would be handy in case your car breaks down or gets a flat tire.
