  1. Default Chicago to New Orleans advise needed

    Me and my girlfriend are planning on taking a road trip from Chicago to New Orleans in the summer, we were thinking of going for 2 weeks and obviously would like to stop in each city to see the sight eat the food.

    We can’t decided if 2 weeks is a enough time to see both cities and the sights in between without it feeling a bit rushed to get back in the car and make the next destination.

    Any advise would be appreciated and any suggestions on where to stop would be good too.

    Via the most direct Interstate highway route, Chicago to New Orleans is a 2 day drive each way, so with 2 weeks you have plenty of time for sightseeing and spending a few days in New Orleans.

    Best suggestion I have is get a US road atlas, mark Chicago and New Orleans, then look for points of interest between the 2 cities. If you have alloted a few days each direction, you can take one way down and a different way back.

    Default Some of My GRR Favorites

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I've driven several different portions of the Great River Road, and some of my favorite sites and sights along it include (N to S): the restored village of Nauvoo, IL; Hannibal, MO and the Twainiana; the Lewis and Clark launch site outside Hartford, IL; the Jefferson Memorial, Zoo and Grant's Farm in St. Louis; Ste. Genevieve, MO; Mud Island in Memphis; Vicksburg National Military Park; the Natchez Plantations; the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge; and the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. In addition, be sure to use at least a few of the ferry crossings of the River.
