What does everyone think is the best driving approach into Uptown when coming from the Airport. Keeping in mind that it should not be TOTALLY out of the way and indirect, which approach is most vivid - adding for views and landmarks, and subtracting for neigborhood blithe and/or traffic conditions?

If your goal is to impress out of town visitors than I would take 85 N to 77S to I-277 Brookshire.

The portion of Brookshire from 85 to 77 is rather rundown and undeveloped and would not leave a good impression with out of town visitors.

I think it was mentioned on another thread here not too long ago - Park Road and Fairview. It may be going out of your way from the airport, but you could jockey back over to South Blvd. and head uptown.

Freedom Road gives a pretty great view of the city end to end. It even includes that rose colored building on S. Blvd.

Coming from the airport, Wilkinson isn't all that bad. Maybe because I drive it every day, I look past all of the not so great parts!
