My wife and I together with her parents (from the UK living in Dubai) are going to be driving from Memphis to New Orleans next month. We have allowed 5 days for the journey and as much as possible don't want to go on the interstate. We are interested in seeing America and experiencing as much as possible on the journey.
I have been looking on maps and reading a lot, mostly quite old, posts on various forums but I would really like to get feedback on towns etc that we should plan to stop along the way. Any advice would by most appreciated.
