We have 9 days to go from Huntsville AL to NYC at the end of the month. The catch is we have to be in New Orleans on day 2, so really this is a week long trip from the Big Easy to the Big Apple. We have some thoughts but we're looking for some advice.
We'd like to do this but we do not have enough time:
New Orleans to Greenville, MS via US 61. We have driven this before but at night. We want to visit Doe's Eat Place in Greenville.
Greenville east across Mississippi via US 82 to the Natchez Trace Parkway.
Natchez Trace to Nashville. We've driven the entire Natchez Trace in Mississippi and Alabama but never TN. We always enjoyed the slower pace.
Nashville to Lexington to visit some of the bourbon distilleries in KY.
Lexington east via I64 to Virginia someplace where we'd pick up the Blue Ridge Parkway/Skyline Drive north.
Back on interstates at Front Royal, VA to the NYC area, probably via I81/I84 instead of 95.
Any thoughts? Like we said, we know we do not have time for all of this, at least not at the slow pace we'd like to take it at.
