Chicago to New Orleans

Jump to last reply

Please would you look over this itinerary and give me some feedback? There are two possibilities for the timing of this three week trip - March/April or July. I'm just at the beginning of planning.

A couple of useful bits of info - I will be going with my husband, we're both early thirties. We've travelled in the states before, but not this part. Budget - no hostels, but cheap and cheerful is fine, with one or two "splash out" places (4 or 5 stars). Interests are good food and wine, stunning views (happy to undertake moderately difficult hikes to achieve this) - so national park recommendations would be great! - also soaking up local culture which on this trip I think means music! Planning to hire a car for this trip, as we both like driving and longish distances are not a problem.

Day 1 - Arrive Chicago
Day 5 - Drive to Mammoth Cave National Park
Day 8 - Drive to Nashville
Day 12 - Drive to Memphis
Day 16 - Drive to New Orleans
Day 21 - Fly home

Main points I'd appreciate help on:

Is the above feasible time-wise? I had thought of extending the trip to Austin but I don't think it's doable?
March/April or July a better bet?
Did I miss anything glaring out? What other national parks/areas of natural beauty should we see?
Is North to South the best way to go? Any reason why I should "flip"?

Thanks everyone!
