My apologies, but this trip will take at least 9 days at this pace.  It's really really far!!

I would recommend breaking it up into 2 hour chunks and doing morning-afternoon-evening stints, if you need to rest.

At 6 hours a day, you'll be there in about 6 days.  3 night less in hotels! can help you plan the route.  Have a great time on the road.

If you drive a little longer on one day (5.5 hours instead of 4) you can do it in 8 days.

take I-10 East to Mobile. Stop in New Orleans. Stay in Hotels you have rewards in. After New Orleans stay in Biloxi. Dine at Mary Mahoney's Old French House in Biloxi. Go North to Memphis. Stay at Sam's Town in Tunica, MS. It is 20 minutes from Memphis, Tennessee. Go downtown to listen to music and have BBQ. From there l would travel to Nashville and stay there. Next stop would be Louisville. Louisville is across from Cincinnati If you like casinos there are many in Ohio. l stop in Caves when l see signs. They are many places that you can stop. l gave you ideas from New Orleans. Plan to avoid El Paso
