    I have 10 days off and no responsibilities and plenty of money...I have always wanted to go on a road trip...just me and the road. I live in Wichita Falls Texas..and want to make my way through LA, MS, AL, and GA maybe even into SC. Any suggestions of scenic routes, restaurants, bars, hotels, landmarks...etc. etc.?? There is no time constraints on where I am staying or anything..I just want to make this a memory that will be with me forever!!

    In addition to the tips provided in this thread, here are a couple of suggestions on your route :

    1) Route 12 and the Outer Banks of NC (a little out of the way but worth it)
    -Wright Bros National Memorial (US 158);
    -Cape Hatteras National Sea Shore;
    -lighthouses;

    2) Charleston, SC
    -Magnolia Plantation & Gardens;
    -Charleston Museum;
    -Bull Island

    3) Georgia
    -Whistle Stop Café from the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, Juliette, GA
    -Watershed Restaurant owned by Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers, Decatur, GA;

    4) Mobile, AL
    -Bubble Lounge on Old Shell Rd is a great place to have a martini;
    -The Wintzell's Oyster House has oyster-eating contests;
    -USS Alabama in Mobile Battleship Park;
    -Bellingrath Rose Gardens in Theodore;
    -Parks in that area : Meaher S.P., Shepard S.P., Gulf Islands N.S.

    5) Biloxi, MS
    -take a shrimping tour on the Sailfish;
    -casinos : Treasure Bay, Beau Rivage, Casino Magic (Bay St. Louis)

    6) New Orleans, LA
    -Guided tours (I recommend the Gay Heritage Tour (20$) wether you are straight or gay) ;
    -Vieux Carré pubs, jazz clubs and boutiques;
    -Lafayette Cemetery;
    -Voodoo Museum and Westgate Museum of Necromancy;
    -Plantation River Road;
    -If you're into blues, jazz and gospel music, you might want to drive some stretches of US 61.
