I'm moving from LA in two weeks and was planning on taking Interstate 10 all the way east, or, at least through Alabama. I've been dreaming about taking this trip since I was a sophmore in HS, so I really can't wait. My inspiration was my english teacher that year, she commented on how anything south of Interstate 10 through LA,MI,AL was incredibly beautiful. Unfortunately that was a long time ago and now I'm eager for advice on what to see and where this "beauty" is.
I am really curious as to sites to see along the way paticularly in East Texas, Lousiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Wondering if there are any good examples of southern architecture, beaches, FOOD. My biggest concern is really post New Orleans...any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
