Where to stay and which route to take
We are a retired couple but feel young. I have never been to the deep south of USA.
For our 18 day tour in the deep South we need some help:
we start in New Orleans and we finish in New Orleans.
Our programme: flying in from Europe
5 nights New Orleans/LO
1 night Natchez/MS
2 nights Vicksburg/MS
2 nights Clarkdale/MS
2 nights Memphis/TN
2 nights Nashville/TN
1 night Alabama where ???
2 nights Florida where ??? somewhere on the coast
1 night New Orleans/LO
Leaving Nashville, we think of taken the
road #24 south to Murfreesboro , then the scenic
road #231 south to Hunstville
road #565 west to Decatur
road # 65 south to the coast
Please advise if this is the best way.
Somewhere between Birmingham and Montgomery we need a place to sleep, because we will have been driving for.......5 or 6 hours? We like a nice cosy place.
The next day we drive to the coast, but don't know where to stay for 2 nights. Not too touristic.
