I have a conference in Austin, TX in late September so I thought that it may be fun to meet up with a pal in DC and make a road trip out of it.
Looking for advice as to whether this would be an interesting/entertaining route and for suggestions as to what to see along the way. here is what it looks like on the map:
DC- Nashville 670 miles
Nashville-Memphis 200 miles
Memphis-Dallas 450 miles
Dallas- Austin 200 miles
so find something nice/interesting around 300 miles from DC to go to (suggestions?) , stop for night 1
go the next 300 or so miles, stop in Nashville, nights 2 and 3
Nashville to Memphis, stay nights 3 and 4
either hammer on down to Dallas in one go, or
find something cool to see around 200-300 miles from Memphis, stay night 5
go to Dallas, stay night 6, or if there is something interesting around there, nights 6 and 7
meander on down from Dallas to Austin, maybe there are a couple things to see on that short hop?
Look forward to any feedback one might have.
