Route suggestion Atlanta to New Mexico

We are planning a trip to Oregon starting in Atlanta Mid May. Thinking about going a southern route toward New Mexico. We are open to options, but need to be in Oregon July 1st. Any suggestions or tools you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

We are traveling in 34 Tiffin Red.

Take care.

I left FL a month ago and took I-10. A great stop is New Orleans. There is a campground resort 2 blocks off bourbon St. A great place to spend a couple of days.
We stopped on Galveston, TX. not so impressed.
There are some nice places in NM and AZ. we are in Tucson. We stopped a few days in Tombstone that was fun.

We're currently planning a New Orleans trip. What campground resort was that?
Thanks!

Hi

The name is French Quarter RV resort. (FQRV.com). It's a great park.
If it is full the next LAKE PONCHARTRAIN RV resort. It's only 3 miles away and also very nice clean park.
You will enjoy either of them.
Rick

Take care.
Take I-40 out of Memphis. It will take you all the way. If you have the time to experience old Rt 66, take it west from Amarillo instead of I-40.

If you choose the NOLA route plan a stop in Lafayette for some good Cajun times. Of course I40 through Nashville and Memphis are also great destinations. Regardless of your chosen route, you should definitely go through Albuquerque (Santa Fe is close) and spend some time in that area.

Are you asking about the best route to take, or campgrounds, or attractions, or quick overnight places, or all of the above?

Actually, we are delayed a bit on our departure. As a result, we are looking for a direct easy route. We plan on 6 hour days. Any stops along the way on a direct route would be helpful.

Just off I10 in Mandeville, LA is the Fontainbleau State Park. I have heard it is a lovely CG. It is right on the Lake and near the bridge to New Orleans. I will be there May 17th for the weekend. Give a shout out if you decide to try it!

If you still want to take the southern route, the Atlanta to Birmingham to I-40 at Memphis is the way I would go.
Then I-40 all the way to Barstow, CA, then 58 to Bakersfield, then 99 to I-5 north.

Nothing wrong with I20 west from Atlanta. After it merges with I10 in west Texas, you can't get any more southern than that and stay in the USA. It's just a long, boring road, but if you're looking for the fastest route, I think that's it.

I-10 through Texas boring? Only the most boring drive we've found through 36 States! Makes Nebraska seem scenic. But, if you must take I-10, make sure you stop at Don's Cajun Restaurant in Lafayette, LA for World-Class Gumbo! Dang near worth the drive from Michigan.
