  1. Default From Los Angeles, Ca to Orlando, Fl

    I'm taking a trip from LA to Orlando with about 7 days to spare. I plan on following the Gulf of Mexico the whole way in. What are some good places to stop and get a bite to eat, explore, or generally add to a good road trip experience. I want to explore Austin, TX and New Orleans, LA for now. Maybe Savannah, GA too.
    Any suggestions?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You've got the basics of a great RoadTrip already, but some other places you might want to consider along the Gulf are the Gulf Islands National Seashore and the Creole Nature Trail. Also, as you work your way across the southwest deserts, Joshua Tree National Park, Saguaro National Park, Carlsbad Caverns, and Big Bend National Park are obvious options given the amount of time that you have.

    If caves interest you at all, spend a full day at Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

    The town of Carlsbad is a nicer place to stay and certainly a better place to eat than White's City. I would also pack a picnic lunch and pass on the cafeteria in the park. Stay around for sunset if possible and watch the bats leave the cave.

    Austin is full of great places to eat and plenty of live music.
