Louisville to Dallas, spring time, 10 days, teenagers

Jump to last reply

I am planning a road trip starting from Louisville KY.
I want to pass through Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and finish in Texas, as we continue our quest to get to all 50 states.

I find the best fares are coming out of Dallas.
And I think that's a good place to end due to my ideal driving schedule of 4-6 hours at a time or less.

What I need help with is stop suggestions.

I do have ideas for Louisville and I'd like to stay a night in Nashville.
But, then what?
A mapping of the route shows the most direct route skips OK and is somewhat close to Mississippi. The route on the AAA plotter goes from Nashville to Memphis in TN, through Little Rock in Arkansas.

Any must-sees in KY and TN?
What should I do where in AR?
Where do you suggest is worth a route deviation into OK?
Do you think there is something near the route I can detour for in Mississippi?
And, what do you suggest that's truly Texas around Dallas?
(My husband, who is familiar with some of TX due to his work in the energy business, says Dallas is not real-Texas, although he admits that he hasn't been exposed to the city as a tourist.)

Can you help? We only have 10 days to cover the terrain.

We love history, natural beauty and fishing, pro-baseball and pro-hockey, quirky local stuff and eats, and museums. We are not into extravagances (but the occasional splurge could be considered) but we are not campers, as we are dumb city slickers. My daughter would love to try riding a horse; not so sure about the rest of the crew.

I have enjoyed stop and browse, then drive and stop and browse then drive, and I've also enjoyed driving and really getting to know a place and staying a night or two.

What suggestions and references do you have for each state on the trip?
