Road Trip New Orleans to Atlanta

Jump to last reply

I have previously posted here before but have had a slight change of plans in regards to my trip. At this stage I am now scheduled to be in the USA in early June hopefully getting into New Orleans on Wednesday night June 12, 2013. My pencilled in trip is as follows:

Day 1 to 3 - New Orleans
Day 4 - Drive NO to Natchez via a lunch time stop at Abita Springs Brewery
Day 5 - Natchez Antebellum House tour then drive to Vicksburg via Natchez Trace
Day 6 - Visit Vicksburg Military Park then drive to Clarksdale
Day 7 - Delta Blues Music Museum then drive to Memphis
Day 8 - Memphis Graceland
Day 9 - Memphis National Civil Rights Museum then drive to Tupelo?
Day 10 - Tupelo to Nashville via Natchez Trace
Day 11 - Country Music Hall of Fame then drop car and bus to Atlanta
Day 12 - Atlanta Civil Rights Museum
Day 13 - Coca Cola World fly out at night.

I think this itinerary would give me a good sample of some of things I am keen on experiencing. In no particular order these being food, antebellum homes, civil war history, civil rights history, music, and scenic drives. I am thinking of maybe cutting my trip to Nashville as I would only be going there because it is "Nashville". This would give me 2 to 3 days of either extra time in certain places or even another, slightly different road trip.

Would be interested to hear peoples thoughts and suggestions on what I am looking at doing, how I might improve upon it, or is there any things I really need to do?

Cheers
