My husband and I are planning to take a road trip to New Orleans from Jersey City in our Honda City this Xmas. Although not music buffs, we are County / Jazz enthusiasts and would like to listen to some great music on this trip. We are also interested in Arts and Crafts, theater, as well as nature's unending beauty. Basically, pretty much anything that captivates a curious mind. We can spare 7 days for this journey, and would like to spend at least 2 days in New Orleans. This is our first trip in the Deep South, and we would love to soak up the flavor of the place. We are both comfortable driving in winter, but would like to avoid stepping out in cold as far as possible.
So what do you think? Is this adventure doable in the time we have? What towns/Cities should we cover? Since we are doing a loop- we can stop by different places on the way back.
Advise, suggestions and recommendations are most welcome.
