    Default NY to NOLA

    Hi everyone!

    Four friends and I are planning a road trip from Queens,NY to New Orleans. We're spending 10 days(October 26 to November 4) on the trip,and decided that we'd spend majority of the time in and around the New Orleans area. However, on our drive back, we wanted to check out some historic/scenic routes. I read some of the posts on this website and came across one that mentioned a route the " Blues Highway" from New Orleans to Mississippi. We're considering taking that route, giving ourselves about 3-4 days to head back to NY from New Orleans.

    Being our first road trip, we'd appreciate any suggestions!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Default Some Historic Scenery

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The Blues Highway is as much about the 'feel' of the area and culture as it is about the scenery and history. It will take you up to Memphis, where Beale St is a current Mecca of the Blues. From there, you should head across Tennessee to the Great Smoky Mountains. US-64 offers a slower-paced alternative to I-40 and will bring you within easy side trip distance of Shiloh. Once on the eastern side of the mountains, you can alternate between I-81 and the Blue Ridge Parkway as time and your inclination dictate. Historically interesting stops on your way back to New York would include Monticello, Antietem, and Gettysburg. Just note that four days is not 'all the time in the world' and choices will have to be made.
