Itinerary

Day 1

After picking up your motorhome, it’s an easy 21⁄2 hour Interstate drive into Alabama for your first night in the State Capital, Montgomery.

Day 2

Heading for New Orleans but you need a break. Mobile, Alabama, seems like a good place and the Shady Acres Campground will offer a warm welcome

Day 3

Heading for the historic, gracious and unique city of New Orleans: the birthplace of jazz. You can walk from The French Quarter RV Park into the heart of New Orleans. Though the RV Park looks a little like a car park, it has full hookups and the Clubhouse is very ‘New Orleans’ with great facilities. The wonderful restaurants, the world famous music and nightlife for everyone might make you extend your stay here.

Day 4

North now into Elvis country. It’s a long ride to ‘Elvis Town’ so we are breaking the journey just south of Jackson, Mississippi – another State Capital and staying at The Swinging Bridge RV Park.

Day 5

North now into Elvis country. It’s a long ride to ‘Elvis Town’ so we are breaking the journey just south of Jackson, Mississippi – another State Capital and staying at The Swinging Bridge RV Park.

Day 6

A couple of hours driving through the Holly Springs National Forest to Memphis. Where better to stay than within walking distance of Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home. The Memphis-Graceland RV Park & Campground is located on 19 acres just off Elvis Presley Boulevard behind Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel.

Day 7

To the home of Country Music and the city that saw Dolly Parton and a host of other great singers become international stars. Just north of Nashville is Goodlettsville and the Nashville Country RV Park and they organise tours through Grayline to major attractions such as the Grand Old Opry (Tues, Fri, Sat night), Country Music Hall of Fame and the Jack Daniels Distillery.

Day 8

Just over two hours to our last stop of this trip near Chattanooga. Raccoon Mountain RV Park & Campground is the closest campground to the area’s major attractions: Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Southern Belle Riverboat, IMAX Theatre, and downtown Chattanooga. Adjacent is Raccoon Mountain Caverns with 51⁄2 miles of cave systems to explore.

Day 9

Just over 2 hours/130 miles to drive to drop off your motorhome back at Cruise America in Atlanta.
