Driving from Arizona to Florida. Need suggestions on what to see?

Jump to last reply

I did it. Got the car I always wanted, a totally restored, low mileage, 1974 Triumph TR6 :-D. We will be flying into Phoenix in late July to pick it up. We decided to take our time driving it back and see parts of the country that we have not seen before. For the most part we will stick to I-10.

We both have been to Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama before. We will spend couple of days in Phoenix and the surrounding area(not interested in Grand Canyon this time). We also made plans to stop in New Orleans, Biloxi(for little gambling), The Florida Panhandle.

Texas and New Mexico are the states we are not very familiar with. We do want to stop in San Antonio, but other than that we're open for suggestions. Not really interested in Dallas.

This will be about 14-15 day drive so 2-3 days per stop max.

Phoenix - 2 nights
New Mexico - ??? 1-2 nights
San Antonio - 2 nights
Any other interesting stop(s) in Texas - 2-3 nights
Biloxi - 1 night
Panhandle 1-2 nights

Please suggest some interesting stop(s) in Texas. We both love historic places, good restaurants, fun evening entertainment, etc....
