Default Road Tripping from Atlanta GA to Phoenix AZ, what to see/do?

My sister is moving from Atlanta to Phoenix Next week and I've agreed to ride with her across the country so she isn't traveling alone. We have about 4-5 days set up for the trip so we aren't rushing things and/or driving 24/7 so we have a bit of time to stop and enjoy the sights as we go along.

I've never been east of MS and the one time I was their I was stuck in Biloxi for a week *What a shithole that place was* so my question to GDD is what should I stop by/see/do/eat/visit on route from east to west? I'm not terribly familiar with sights outside of my own state and the only thing I want to visit ATM is the MB plant in Alabama, so any input would be greatly appreciated.

The route we have set so far.

I would honestly take the 75 down to the 10 and hit up New Orleans.

I'd definitely hit up NO and Austin, even if it means taking an extra day or 2. This all assumes that you like live music and general debauchery

NO and Austin. After Austin enjoy the long boring riding.

lol at biloxi being a **** hole. Theres not much to do there except gamble. If you like BBQ you can stop in Gautier, MS and eat at The Shed.

I move to Japan and now you decide to drive through Alabama. I see how it is.

The only thing I can recommend on your route through Alabama is to stop and get some good BBQ. Just looking for the shittiest looking building with the largest number of lifted trucks out front and it will probably be decent. If you happen to have a "I'm not black and gay" costume sitting around it probably wouldn't hurt to put it on before entering either. If you ARE discovered your best course of action is to just start shouting "Roll Tide!" and/or random facts about bass fishing while slowly backing away.

Good luck.
