As we all know, part of the fun of a road trip is staying off the interstates and taking the time to enjoy the more entertaining smaller roads. As part of that quest, I propose we compile a list of requests for and suggestions of tasty byways, stops along such paths, great diners, etc., for folks to incorporate into their travel plans. I know that several scenic drives are already planned around Birmingham.
I'm looking more for interesting longer-range ideas.
For example, I'm driving from Dallas to Birmingham and have no idea what there is to see in northern Louisiana or Mississippi. I would welcome suggestions.
