Rodeo roadtrip, Southbound from St Louis
Myself and two friends are planning a roadtrip, end
of may into June. We have 9 nights. So far things
have gone great and we have a pretty good idea of
where things are leading, but I thought I would check
here in case we screw up somewhere... We are party-
oriented guys in our mid twenties that have a
surprisingly contrasting appreciation of the nicer
things too (scenery, nature, buildings, history...)
Thoughts generally are to head south making stops at
Memphis TN, Baton Rouge/New Orleans, LA, Along the
coast there to Houston, Dallas, Austin. Rodeo in
Killeen, and then back up to St Lou through Oklahoma
City. So we are fairly set for the big things.
Considering maybe dropping Houston in exchange for
fun, smaller/less obvious places depending on what
you guys can turn up...?
Ideally I would be interested in any small, fun and
quirky things/places that might exist on this general
route, that we might otherwise miss....
Any ideas/comments on this, and the places I listed
would be welcome... I am just fishing here so far...
If anyone is interested in Scottish info, contact me;
I am Scottish and moved over here only a year and a
In Memphis you have to hit Beale St in the evening for some GREAT jazz music. If you're into Elvis, there's Graceland.
Oklahoma is nothing to waste your time on. You can make it through there quickly!
You want a list?
(I'll bet) I can give you 25 different things to do in Oklahoma! Get out a map and take a look! Everything from Black Kettle, Rte 66, Woolaroc, Will Rogers, Roger Miller and Tom Mix. Not to mention the Indian Nations and the Winding Stair Mtns, the NATIONAL WRESTLING MUSEUM, Pawnee Bill and rodeo every weekend!
