Look for the old (pre Interstate) US routes, especially those that follow rivers. These routes generally do no suffer extreme elevation changes, and in many cases are 4 lanes and practically deserted.

I have driven my local roads literally thousands of times, so I try to avoid the Interstates, unless its early in the morning and I want to be at a specific place at a specific time. Sometimes I will start at 4 AM to try to get past congested areas before the traffic gets bad.

It may be that you would want to use one higher average speed route to go there and another lower speed route coming back.
