  1. Default Roadtrip Austin to Miami ideas?

    Hi, My friends and I are from New Zealand and are planning a road trip from Austin to Miami over 10 days. We want to stay fairly close to the coast to minimise the daily driving time how ever if there was something good inland that we should see we would certainly look into it. We want to do a little sight seeing of anything of interest but don't know what to go and see, can anyone help with any ideas. Also we are all in out mid 20's so we want to party alot any ideas of where to stop along the way would be really good.

    Default Some Different Tracks

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    For starters, let's look at some party towns: Austin certainly has one of the most vibrant music and bar scenes in the country; New Orleans is well known for its jazz and free-wheeling style. particularly in the French Quarter; and Daytona Beach is one of the premier beach resorts catering to young adults. Also, pretty much any college town will have ample nightlife, so check out Houston (University of Houston), Baton Rouge (Louisiana State University). Tallahassee (Florida State University), and Gainesville (University of Florida).

    Next scenery and nature: You'll do well by simply following the Gulf Coast, but some roads and places particularly worth checking out include the Creole Nature Trail in southwest Louisiana, the Gulf Islands National Seashore offshore of Biloxi and Pascagoula Mississippi, and a possible side trip to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Georgia.

    Finally some (recent) history: the Johnson Space Center in Houston, the USS Alabama (battleship) in Mobile, the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, and the Kennedy Space Center outside Titusville
