I'm looking for a little advice on a road trip I'll be taking in September. A little information about the trip first:
I'm travelling with one friend. We're flying into New York and planning on staying there for two nights. Then from September 19th through to the 4th of October we'll be renting a car and taking in as much as we can, and hoping to reach New Orleans with enough time to get back for a return flight from New York.
We're interested in eating some great food, taking in the night life, music and off-beat attractions. We don't mind excessive driving, but we'd like to have some breaks, of course, when we've reached a place we want to see more of.
I'm looking for any advice on places to see along the road. Or if anyone thinks we're crazy to make the drive to New Orleans and back in two weeks. Tips? Anybody attempted a similar road trip in the past?
