The second week in March two friends and I will be driving from the Clearwater, FL area to Detroit, MI. We intend to go camping and enjoy hiking nature trails, visiting wildlife refuges and petting farms. We also enjoy antiquing and novelty restaurants.
We only have 5 days to make this trip, so our time in each state will be limited. We've driven the east coast route back, and we've driven straight north, so we want to take a more western route back home this year.
We will leave FL and drive into AL... it is our intention to spend about 5-6 hours each day driving. We have no idea what to visit in these states and really have no requirements other than we'd like to drive through the Ozarks.
I'd love recommendations of scenic drives, along with any of the above listed activities.
We also love going to live music shows, we'd love to catch a blues or zydeco jam.
