Help with Southern States driving holiday

Jump to last reply

Hi guys, I'm after some advice and some help if you can....

My girlfriend and I are flying over to Atlanta GA in October and we're over for 12 nights. We're looking at hiring a car and seeing the Southern States but the only problem is......we know very little about this area apart from what research we've done. Firstly we chose the Southern States as we wanted to experience southern culture and food, its music and its scenery. I'm a big fan of good music, she's a big fan of good food and we're both big fans of a good night out. Now that's a little about us, these are the places we'd like to incorporate into our visit: New Orleans, Memphis and Nashville.

So here is our basic, first draft itinerary for our 12 nights.......

Day 1 - Land and stay in Atlanta.

Day 2 - Chattanooga or Great Smokey Mts

Day 3/4 - Nashville

Day 5/6 - Memphis

Day 7 - Natchez

Day 8/9 - New Orleans

Day 10 - Birmingham

Day 11/12 - Atlanta

So there it is guys. Any help/advice/corrections would be gratefully appreciated. I've put these destinations the distance they are apart because I'm not sure what sort of distance you could realistically cover in a days drive (here in the UK the motorways are generally clogged up and the non-motorway roads are a different experience altogether.....the thought of 3hrs on a national A-road makes me wince).

Like I said, we'd like to try and expericence the Southern States in all its glory. If you think we can do this by these destinations that's great but if you can advise otherwise I'd love to hear it.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I look forwars to hearing from you....
