FLORIDA TRIP
U.S. 287 Texas

U.S. 287 begins at TX 87 in Port Arthur, Texas and goes to U.S. 89 in Choteau, Montana. Between Fort Worth and Amarillo, the highway is 4-laned, and provides the most direct route from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to Wichita Falls and the Texas panhandle. On Day One of the Florida Trip, I drove U.S. 287 from Wichita Falls to Interstate 35W in Fort Worth.
