We are planning a trip from Charlotte to New Orleans from 12th October to 28th October. We are coming over from the UK.
We've done road trips before through California to Nevada (San Fransisco > Yosemite > Pacific Coast Highway > Los Angeles > Las Vegas) and Florida (Orlando > Keys > Miami)
We realise we are going to get charged a one-way car rental fee but are happy with that rather than a looped trip in order to see as many places as possible.
We're after any helpful advice on the following rough plan, are the length of stays about right and is there anything we shouldn't miss.
Some likes are : Historic architecture and towns, wildlife, good food, micro breweries, amusement parks, and motorsports but none of these are an overriding reason to miss anything else that's good.
Fri 12th Oct - Arrive Charlotte mid afternoon (Stay Charlotte)
Sat 13th Oct - Visit Carowinds Amusement Park (Stay Charlotte)

We had thought of seeing NASCAR at Charlotte but it looks as if it huge and likely to be very busy and time consuming for someone who's not a huge fan. So this is where the idea of more local level motorsport at Mobile came from. I'm tempted with the Drag racing and my partner's more convinced about Dirt Track racing, so who should win this battle?
We ruled out Atlanta as I've been there a couple of times before including the nearby Amusement Park.
Thanks in advance for any tips and advice.
