That being said, as of now I currently have tickets to Florida State/Clemson in Tallahassee on 10/29, and then LSU/Bama tickets the following weekend in Baton Rouge. Outside of a few visits to Orlando and Atlanta, I really haven't seen much of that part of the country at all. My FSU friends would be flying back to the Chicago on Sunday 10/30, and my LSU friend would be meeting me down in New Orleans the next Thursday. I was thinking about renting a car and taking my time making the trip over, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for unique/interesting places to stop. Being (most likely) on my own, I'd tend to veer towards nature-y things vs good nightlife, but would obviously welcome good dining options too.
I've been to the Destin/Gulf Shores area a couple times, it's a nice place to spend some time beachfront but otherwise I don't have much in the way of recommendations for sightseeing. I did tour the USS Alabama in Mobile, that was pretty cool if you think you'd be into that.
