I am currently planning a road trip for next August/September from New York to LA. We have three weeks to do it and seem to be happy with the route for the first half of the trip, which should be something along the lines of:
New York - Buffalo - Chicago - Nashville - Memphis - New Orleans - Houston
After this, we are pretty undecided. Having seen very little of the states, we are unsure of whether to stay south and go through San Antonio, El Paso and then head north through Phoenix and onto Vegas or whether to start heading north at Houston through Austin and heading towards Albuquerque catching monument valley. Not knowing this area at all, could anyone offer any advice? We are really keen to get to see as much of the deep south as possible, catching remote towns and enjoying the famous texan cuisine! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
