I'm heading to Hattiesburg, Mississippi in mid-may. It's only a 13 hour trip from here in Raleigh, NC-but I am making the trip with my daughter (a fun, spunky 5 year old). This being my first trip down south, I wanted to try to find some random attractions, or easy-to-hit sights.
Can anyone advise me on some good ol' all-american sights that I simply must see? Or any crazy "gator" farms that she'd enjoy?
It's not a very long trip, but I have an unlimited amount of time, and money isn't much of an issue, but I'm not expecting on blowing very much for the kinds of attractions I want to see. I'm not after the big museums and such this time, but rather the classic old random sights you pass by.
Most of my trip will be in I-85-but here's a brief idea of where we'll be--
I-85 S (Passing through SOUTH CAROLINA, then crossing into GEORGIA).
Merge onto I-20 W via EXIT 247 (Crossing into ALABAMA).
Merge onto I-459 S via EXIT 136 toward MONTGOMERY/ TUSCALOOSA.
Merge onto I-59 S via the exit on the LEFT toward TUSCALOOSA (Crossing into MISSISSIPPI).
I just really want to SEE things this trip, and my daughter would enjoy it as well. The trip is as important as our visit with family is.
I thank you in advance for your help :-) And hope SOMEONE knows a little about this area!
