We are two girls going on a road trip for 20 days from LA to Jacksonville (FL) in September, and we are in serach of some good tips. We have already decided on some of the aspesct of the trip, for instance Amarillo, Dallas and New Orleans, in addition to a ranch stay in Tucson. We are especially interested in things to do in Texas, and also a nice relaxing place stay on the East Coast before we head out from Jacksonville.
We are not especially interested in museums, but more keen to experience the local culture and events, including football games, concerts and other happenings.

Also, does anyone know if there exists a kind of 'forum' where travelers going through the same area can get in contact with each other? We are thinking that it might be nice to meet up with other 'road trip'ers', while we are out driving.

A&B :-)
