Southern States USA Road Trip

I need advice as the best things to do and see for the following route Atlanta-Nashville-Memphis-New Orleans-Birmingham-Atlanta. We will have just over 2 weeks & will be pick up a hire car at the airport & want to include a mixture of music, jack daniels, sights, history, bit of adventure & some relaxing/beach if possible. General idea atm is to find accomodation as we go unless there are some must stay places at not too expensive price. Any info gratefully received & hints at good car hire companies & ways to save money too! Thanks in advance

I ll come back with more info later, but since THIS post is on the MS page, here's a start.

To begin your research on the stretch between Memphis and NOLA, check out


covers Memphis through Vicksburg. Lots of good info. One night you can spend between these two cities at the Shack Up Inn, an interesting experience.


Also, look through the MS forum for recent threads on "Memphis to NO road trip, MS road trip, stuff like that.

Some more good ideas for Memphis & Vicksurg included there.

Sounds fun,

What to do depends a lot on when you're going. Do you have approximate (or fixed) dates yet?
