"This sounds like a long but fun trip! In New Orleans you can park near the COACH RIVERWALK and walk around to see the riverboats and tour a little of the French Quarter like Jackson Square and the French Market Inn Depending on which way you choose to drive, if you go through Birmingham the New Orleans Botanical Garden is a nice stop. Beautiful gardens, free to enter, and lots of room to run and wear out kids. Atlanta also has great Botanical Gardens with a new kids area. You can also park and walk around Centennial Park which has a huge playground and fountains to splash in. World of Coca-Cola and the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas are also right there if you want to spend the time and money. Greenville and Charlotte are great small towns that are easy to navigate. Good walking cities with lots of restaurants and charming downtown areas." See More
