My husband and i (early 30's) are driving from Memphis to Orlando in April, over two days (leave memphis thurs AM, arrive orlando fri PM). I'm hoping someone might be able to suggest an interesting route? (Ie. off the main highways, for at least some of the trip).
We enjoy seeing real "Americana", small towns, quaint scenery and historical or quirky sites along the way as well as eating good old home style cooking at cute little diners etc. I have seen some people suggest that a diversion up to Chattanooga might be better than the more direct routes through Alabama, but I don't have any burning desire to visit Chattanooga unless the scenery that way would without-a-doubt be worth it.
Grateful for any advice! (Will also post in road trip forum)
