My husband and I are in the very early planning stages for a road trip next year (prob June-July time but open to suggestions of a better time).
We were thinking of flying in and out of Florida as this is the cheapest and most direct option for us from the UK, we would then like to plan a 2 week trip west and then fly back to Florida for our flight home.
At the moment we're thinking Savannah and New Orleans have to be included as do a Mississippi river cruise and a rodeo (thinking around San Antonio, Texas). What we need help with is how to join these places up and where to stop along the way.
We're both 28 and would like to see a wide range of things. We like trying regional foods, outdoor/active, sports, local culture and maybe some American Civil war history. We're particularly keen on staying in small, interesting, more local towns along the way rather than large cities, touristy places, theme parks, etc. We'd like to see the "true" Southern USA.
