Myself and a friend are visiting New Orleans for the 2007 Mardi Gras in Feb. We then plan to hire a car and drive all the way to Miami, which is 1038 miles (1670 kilometres) I have given myself 17 days to do this distance with a few stop off's. Is this enough time?
I have been doing a bit of research on the internet and there is so much to see and do I really dont know where to start. Are there any really outstanding places I should stop at and any that I should avoid?
Also can I get onto the Creole Nature Trail easily from New Orleans?
Any advise would be gratefully received. Thank you.
