Planning a trip

I am planning a running vantrip to Texas and Tennessee for March 2- 19, 2009

My sister in law and I are planning to see Karen,My best friend from High school , Carla from Blogville, and my brother in law in Texas. Photobucket
In Murfreesboro, Tennessee We will visit my husbands niece.
I am excited that.
Even though it is the golf of Mexico I will get to see the ocean.

I will get to see New Orleans in Louisiana.
We will pass though Birmingham Alabama.
I also do not know if we should take hwy 59 or hwy 65 from New Orleans or Birmingham AL. to Tenn.
If you know of any things to do or see, or if you are on my rout and want a visit from me. please post your suggestions. As it is not easy to plan this trip. By Internet alone. I am on a limited budget so I can not go to expensive restaurants and events. My sister in law said she like to go out to shows. But what I have found so far in Texas is budget busters. I also found parking can be $7-$10 for Rodeo Houston Rascal Flatts ,Clay Walker, Trace Adkins, Allen Jackson.At Reliant Stadiumin Houston.

Thanks for stopping by my blog 'Life In Wakefield'. I am excited to have found you.

Your trip sounds so thrilling. And, you are covering some of my 'old stomping grounds'. Used to live just outside Birmingham.

I can't wait to see the pictures from your trip. I am putting you on my bloglist.

When in New Orleans, Cafe DeMunde is a must! It's along the Mississippi River front and famous for their Beignet's, a donut type batter in unorganized shapes and then smothered in powdered sugar. Mouth watering good!

If you choose the I59 route to Chattanooga, i maybe able to work out a visit with you there. I'm about 2 1/2 hours from there in the Great Smoky Mountains of NC. Chattanooga has many wonderful attractions like Ruby Falls and Rock City. I don't know what they cost anymore, but about 10 years ago they were reasonable. They also have one of the best aquariums I've ever been to as well. Denise (Shortybear) is from there, she could tell you more stuff as well.

I love your graphics on this one, too!

Your trip sounds wonderful! I love the Gulf of Mexico. We love going to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach...much, much prettier than Gulfport. You won't be far from there when you get to Mobile, AL.

I am glad to see that you will be visiting Tennessee and Arkansas. When you pass through will be about 2 1/2 hours from me.

If you can...go see Ruby Fall when in Chattanooga and the Arch in St. Louis.

You will have a wonderful sightseeing trip.

Have a safe trip.
