Hello all. My spouse and I have just decided to have family road trip from New York City to New Orleans this year. We have about a week and a half for the entire trip, including travel. We plan on having 2-1/2 days to travel to New Orleans, about 5 days in the city and another 3 days to travel back Although we've travelled south before (mostly to Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA) we are looking for an interesting, inexpensive and fun travel experience.
We will be travelling with kids -- ages 6, 14 and 16. It would be helpful to get suggestions on:
- scenic routes to and from New Orleans
- must see places along the way
- must see places in New Orleans
If there are national parks, beaches, historic sites or other places along the way it would be great to get your suggestions.
