Driving through Alabama to New Orleans: what to do
Posted May 8th, 2012 - 3:18 pm by from Toronto, Canada (Permalink)
I'm driving to New Orleans from Toronto and on the second night we'll be around Alabama/Mississippi. I've done a bit of research as to which city we should stay for the night, but it's been very inconclusive. So I'm hoping you can help me. My gf and I like to experience some of that Southern charm :P Meet some good folks, get some delicious local food, visit a place or two, maybe catch some nice music.

1) Which city do you recommend we stay for the night? Birmingham? We don't want to necessarily see big cities; even a small, quaint town or city can be nice.
2) Where in that city/town would you suggest we visit?
3) ANy suggestions for good places to grab a bite? I don't want to go to an Italian or French or Chinese restaurant. I want some local food!
4) Can someone recommend a nice bed and breakfast?
