Hi Y'all (just getting into the spirit),
Taking my wife and younger daughter (22) on a 3 weeks road trip from NYC to LA and hope to see as much in between as possible. High on the list are the deep south states. I've visited some parts before, but many years ago (Kentucky, Tenn, LA) and have fond memories. This time, I'm hoping to see a little more and as we're coming during the winter months, I hope we won't have to contend with too many other tourists.
Really hoping to avoid most of the larger cities and visit the sleepy little towns on the less traveled roads. Still undecided as to whether we go via the Carolinas or through Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, LA and Mississippi. Not bothered about driving long distances or snow. Will definitely spend some time in New Orleans, as I've not been there for over 25 years and want to see what it's like now (kinda apprehensive if truth be known). Morgan Freeman's blues bar is high on the list (Clarkesville I believe) and as many other blues bars as I can find (we all love the blues and a tipple or two).
Please suggest any not to be missed places, that would include diners (with excellent food and character), bars, historic sites and scenic areas. I must dedicate some of our all too short road trip to the 4 corners region of the south west, as there are bucket list areas to visit there too.
Suggestions, advice and recommendations all gratefully accepted!
Cheers from down-under.
