Ok, friends, I need some help. Ya’ll know we’re getting ready for a Giant Road Trip here –
Well I’m almost ready.
I have my hula girl for the dash of our rented suburban . . .
I have space cleared on my refrigerator for all my new magnets . . .
I have goofy sunglasses to wear in order to embarrass my teenagers as much as possible . . .
So here’s what I still need . . .(besides psychiatric, fashion and home decor advice) . . . I need to hear from you places you think we need to see!
Here’s our route map. (Try not to choke on anything – this is shocking)
It shows us leaving and returning to Phoenix because that’s where my parents live – they’re going with us.
Here are the cities we’re trying to hit:
San Antonio, New Orleans, Atlanta, Greensboro NC, maybe a jaunt over to the Outer Banks of NC, Nashville, Memphis (Graceland, duh), back across the 40 through Amarillo, then back to Phoenix.
So do you know of a great place to see? I’m open to anything – from cool to historical to weird. (Remember, we’re traveling with a wide variety of ages here, got to keep everyone interested)
What about great places to eat? We typically try to stay away from “Chain” restaurants. So the more local the better. What do you think? Best place for creole in New Orleans? What about Atlanta? Where do you get barbecue in Nashville? And most importantly, where do you eat dessert in all those cities??
I really appreciate any advice you have – and I’m going to do my best to post about our adventures along the way – so you’ll get to join in the fun too. :)
PS – I’ve added the “Road Trip Fun” button to the site – it’s up there at the top. And there are a few new activity links on both the pages for kids and for us. Check them out!
