What cash do I need for 2 wks roadtrip Nashville, Memphis, Nola, Austin?

Jump to last reply

Hi my friend and I are hitting the states in March for twelve days road trip.
We have all our accom booked apart from two nights where we will probably hit the nearest motel. How much cash should we allow for petrol, food and beer/entertainment? We are Irish girls so not expecting to eat the massive portions I've seen before in the states - can we buy healthy stuff for lunch en route or is it all junk? We want to see lots of live music, some history and try loads of local southern dishes.

Top tips for saving money please! Also can we see any college football march 7th to 19th?
What weather should we expect?

Our route is nashville for 3 nights
Memphis for 1 night we have per booked Graceland and want to do civil rights museum and stay
Driving down the delta
??? For 1 night I would like to see ponchartrain lakes any ideas
New Orleans for 2 nights
?? For 1 night poss pflugerville as we are FNL fans
Austin for 3 nights during sxsw
Houston for 1 night

Help please fodors fans!
