We are heading over to the US next year in Sept/October and are planning on doing a little self driving trip starting at Dallas. Would love to hear what you all think about the places we have chosen to stop at and the distance we are covering. We aren't sure wether we are best to hire an RV or a car and just stay in hotels.
The ages of our children are 16, 14, 10 and 6. We know there are a lot of beautiful places to see but we only have limited time and money. The main things we are looking to see are;
3) Swamp tour
The rest is just atmosphere and enjoying the US. After our driving we will be heading to Disney World and then onto Hawaii as well.
Other than Dallas and New Orleans we are planning on spending 2 nights in most places, Dallas 4/5 nights and New Orleans maybe 3 nights.
Here is what we have so far;
Dallas to Vicksburg (civil war)
Vicksburg to Natchez (plantation homes)
Natchez to New Orleans
New Orleans to Houma(swamp tour, 1 night only)
Houma to Houston(Space centre)
Houston to San Antonio
San Antonio back to Dallas
Dallas to Orlando
thank you all for your advice in advance
