    Default 3 Week Southern States Road Trip - October 15

    Hi everyone,

    Newbie here!

    My boyfriend and I (from Manchester UK) are planning a 3 week road trips across some of the southern states in October / November this year, it's a round trip starting and ending in Nashville, here is our planned route so far:

    Nashville (1 night)
    Memphis (3 nights)
    Austin (2 nights)
    San Antonio (1 nights)
    Ranch in Bandera (3 nights)
    New Orleans (3 nights for Halloween!)
    Full length of the Natchez Trace Parkway (3 nights incorporating Natchez, then possibly Jackson and Tupelo)
    Back up to Nashville (2 nights)

    I was just after a bit of advice for 2 of the longer drives, we have a spare night on the drive from Memphis to Austin, can anyone recommend anywhere of interest to stay over / visit on the way?

    And then we have 2 nights spare on the drive from Bandera to New Orleans, again can anyone recommend any places to visit and stay along the way? I was thinking maybe Lafayette? I would really like to experience Cajun Country, swamps, bayous etc.

    Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Default A Few Sites to Consider

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Between Memphis and Austin, and again between Austin and New Orleans, there are a few rather unique opportunities to do or see things that you might not otherwise. These are, for the most part, not spectacular tourist attractions but slightly off-kilter out of the way venues like Mud Island in Memphis, Crater of Diamonds State Park outside Murfreesboro AR, and the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas on the Memphis to Austin leg; and Big Thicket National Preserve and the Creole Nature Trail on the Austin to New Orleans leg.
