Wondering if anyone has opinions about the best route from St. Louis or Missouri or Memphis area? We came down through Tennessee last year and then down Highway 45 into Mississippi through Tupelo, Meridian and then on into Alabama. I did not like this way because I felt like there weren't a lot of "big" places to stop - just country type gas stations that were sometimes five miles off the main road. We went home through Nashville and that was better but wondering if anyone has gone a different way that they liked and if so, a good town/city to stop for an overnight at a motel? KCMO1, how did you go down from KC? As always, any input is appreciated!!
