Desperately needs a dose of the magic!

Hey Everyone! I hope you read along and enjoy!
We drove from Austin in 2014! It wasn't bad at all (but I like road trips. We left Friday evening after work and made it to Lake Charles (5 hours). The next morning, drove another 7 ish to Destin and stayed there 2 nights, it was AMAZING! After that, maybe 6 more to Orlando! On way home, we stopped 1/2 way in NOLA, which was also great fun. There's so much to see: the giant bridges and bayous in Louisiana, Mississippi River, the piney woods, etc. we stopped frequently since we have 3 kids, had Cajun food, picnic lunch in Biloxi, etc.
This year we are attempting another road trip, plan to get up at the crack of dawn and try to make it to Tallahassee (or as far as we can get). Planning to go see St. Augustine, Savannah, and Vicksburg/Natchez on the way home. I think it's good to plan things to see on the way home...you're excited driving there but the way home can seem like a slog if nothing to stop and see.
