HI

Maybe put your questions in the Road Trips forum as you are visiting several states.:

Are you driving to Nashville, back to Memphis an go south after that?

This is really a tough one. The most direct route to Nashville from Dallas is interstate 30 to Little rock than Interstate 40 to Nashville which takes you through Memphis.

An alternative is the southern route of interstate 20 to Birmingham, Al. than north to Nashville. If you're into casinos there are five in Shreveport through the southern route.

In reality there are no "must sees" in either route. The closest might be Hot Springs in Arkansas which is really a town of maybe 35,000 that has a national park basically downtown made up of a number of former mineral bath houses.

Really not all the special but the country side is lovely.

Sorry, that's the best I can think of off the top of my head.

yes travelling Dallas to Nashville say over 2 or 3 days, then 5 days in Nashville then over 6 days south thru Memphis to New Orleans.

Dallas - Tulsa - St. Louis - Nashville would make a nice trip, but you really need at least 4 days for that to give two nights in St. Louis which is what it deserves. Branson, MO is a long day's drive from Dallas; you could spend a couple of nights there then drive another long day on to Nashville.

Forgot to mention that Tulsa - St. Louis has some good old Route 66 sights along the way if you're interested in that sort of thing.
