Hello! Thanks for being an essential resource for my annual trip planning to cover all 50 states with the family. As usual, I search for my itinerary but nobody seems to start and end how I'm considering!
This year, we are starting from Louisville KY. We got a very good fare.
I want to pass through Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and finish in Texas.
I know I want to pass through Nashville. But after that, I'm stuck.
I find the best fares are coming out of Dallas. And I think that's a good place to end due to my ideal driving schedule.
But my husband, who is familiar with some of TX due to his work in the energy business, says Dallas and Houston are not real-Texas, although he admits that he hasn't been exposed to either city as a tourist.
Can you help? We only have 10 days.
We love history, natural beauty, pro-baseball and pro-hockey, quirky local stuff and eats, and museums. We are not into extravagances but we are not campers. I prefer drive not more than 4-6 hours at a time. I have enjoyed stop and browse, then drive and stop and browse then drive, and I've also enjoyed driving and really getting to know a place and staying a night or two.
What suggestions and references do you have? Thank you so much.
