Hi all, great site and forum, wish I'd found it sooner! We are heading to Florida next week and have 11 days to drive to Texas and back again - we are hoping to take in as many states as is practical - thus far we hope to go Florida - Georgia - Alabama - Mississippi - Louisiana - Texas (have been toying with the idea of going from Mississippi up into Arkansa and then Oklahoma and dropping down into Texas). Return route will be coastal Texas - Louisianna etc.
We will be spending a few days in Texas visiting friends and sites. We have booked our first night in a hotel but the rest of the trip is an open schedule we plan on finding accommodation as we go...good or bad idea?
Would welcome any tips from people.
Our last 10 days after returning to Florida will be spent near Manasota Key - any tips for places to visit - scenic, beaches, historic, wildlife etc?
Thanks in advance.
