The map shows our intended route to Arcadia from SE Kansas.  We will have about six days to make the trip, so not a huge amount of leisure time, but we would like to enjoy a nice stop or two.

Any advice?

 It would add a few hundred miles to trip but that route sucks,drop down to New Orleans enjoy the food and drive the coast much more enjoyable IMO

What sucks about that route?  I don't mind dropping down to New Orleans, but I usually avoid big cities.

I'd drop down to 98 in Pensacola then follow the coast to Perry south on 19 to 27 then I75 south - don't forget to stop in Apalachicola/Eastpoint for Oysters - HTH

Pretty much the route that I used when I returned with my bus from Florida.  Except I went over to Joplin and then down just to avoid the toll roads in Oklahoma.  A lot of two lane roads on this route but traffic was not bad at all.  If you side stepped over to Memphis, quite a bit to take a look at.

If I can make a suggestion, you might want to stay east of Tampa.  You will have more lights, but the area around Tampa is not fun in a car, I don't know how it would be in a bus.  The upside is if you take 27 you can stop at Lakeridge Winery in Clermont.
