wondering if you could provide thoughts on a roadtrip from Memphis to Dallas. I'm not interested in getting there in the shortest amount of time but seeing some of 'urban' or 'country' America - would you recommend going through Mississippi? Or through Arkansas?
Are there any small towns or sites that interest you?
I plan to fly into Memphis, stay 2 nights (is this enough? I don't actually even like Elvis but think Graceland would be fascinating - I'm sure there are non-Elvis things to do in Memphis, can you advise?) and rent a car to get to Dallas.
I'm also concerned by some of the references to Memphis' poverty. I assume females travelling on their own shouldn't have too many problems if they are sensible. Is this true?
