Blues trip from new orleans to chicago via route 61

Trying to find info of this blues route, does not seem to have much info on how to travel and hotel stops. Very much interested in blues music and the history of this blues route.
Has anyone done this trip, and any tips for us along the way.

You'll probably have better luck looking for "highway" 61 than "route" 61. Also "blues highway" may be a phrase to try.

This site seems to have a lot of info for Mississippi http://www.msbluestrail.org/calendar

I remember reading that article - and I would love to do that trip sometime.

There is also a book called The Blues Highway by Richard Knight:
