Hi there - my three adult children and I are planning a 3 week road trip in December 2013 through the southern states - beginning in New Orleans. We plan to fly into New Orleans and spend three or four days there, then pick up a rental car and start driving. We are interested in music, food, nature and history. I've been doing a bit of research - I've read the Lonely Planet guide, but would really appreciate some help. We don't need to end up in New Orleans before flying back to Los Angeles - I was thinking we could perhaps end our journey in Savannah, Georgia? All advice extremely welcome. Thank you so much in advance.
