  1. Default St Louis to Tampa - 11 days

    I'm looking for ideas for a road trip from St Louis to Tampa. Would quite like to go via Memphis, just to see Graceland. Thought about New Orleans, but not sure anymore. We prefer to visit and stay in small friendly towns rather than big cities. And try to avoid Interstates where possible. Any help appreciated.

    Default In That Vein

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If you're interested in the King or history or just special, small town places, here are a few that fall pretty much on your route that you should take some time to visit. The first ins/t that far from home, Ste. Genevieve, an historic old French river town just south of you. Then there's Memphis, of course, but in addition to Graceland, stop by the old Sun Studios where Elvis first recorded along with others you may have heard of: Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins (collectively known as the Million Dollar Quartet), and today's music scene on Beale Street. Taking US-78 southeast out of Memphis will bring you to Tupelo, where Elvis' birthplace is also open to the public. Then as you cut across southwestern Georgia you'll be passing within range of Warm Springs and FDR's Little White House, and Andersonville and its historic and infamous prison. And finally, it's not a very big detour to make it to the western entrance into the Okefenokee Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.

    MAny thanks indeed.
    The second half of our trip covers the Independence Day weekend - any tips for a good place to celebrate?

    I can only guess, but I would think there should be some really good celebrations at the Disney complex in Orlando.
