Hi everyone. My boyfriend and I are looking at going on a week long cruise from New Orleans at the start of November 2010. We live in England so are looking at direct flights to Atlanta and then thought about spending a few days driving down stopping and seeing as much as possible on the way. We have also considered the Crescent route that Amtrak runs but think we would enjoy more freedom in a car.

We are looking at several different routes but ar eat a very early stage of planning. When we have been to the states before we have just booked flights, a hotel at beginning and end then stopped off and stayed in different towns along the way. We would like to do something similar this time.

We like to go to nature reserves, wildlife watch, taking part in and watching many different sports, visiting cities as well as seeing the country. We also love the sea and beachess however this will be part of the cruise so not a definate need on our drive.

My favourite route so far is south out of Atlanta maybe Tallulah Gorge, down to the coast and Florida, then across the Panhandle to Mobile perhaps Dauphan Island, through Biloxi perhaps to Baton Rhouge ending up in New Orleans for a couple of days before the cruise.

Would this be possible in 4/5 days? with plenty of stopping in between.
Also is the weather warm enough to be outside without coats etc?
Is there a better route or any more suggestions.

Thank you very much I look forward to any advice you can give,

I would strongggggggggly advise going to the Florida Keys rather than Mobile, Biloxi and Dauphin Island.

But doing that in 4/5 days is pushing it...
