Best way to avoid Dallas...

I'm travelling from New Orleans to Las Vegas in October and wanted to know if there's a painless way to go around Dallas that might be fun at the same time.

Thanks in advance,

Gravity

What road are you going to be on coming into Texas? A nice road to take which will put you north of the DFW Metroplex is HWY 380. If you want to go south towards Houston, you can take Hwy 87 to Brady and then change over to Hwy 71 which will take you to Int. 10. Basically, it just depends on how you plan to go through Texas.

I'm eventually going to end up on hwy 40 so I guess I want to go north of Dallas. I had considered going just south though, to avoid the clutter.

Perhaps El Jeffe is right, avoid it widely via OK. I must admin, driving through the Ozark mountains is a cool ride!

Thanks,

Gravity

All joking aside, there is TX HWY 219 that goes around the south is pretty fun.

Here's a PDF file of a MS S&T route.
