Nashville to Pensacola Beach

We have 4 days (10/23-10/27) to travel from Nashville to Pensacola Beach (Fort Pitkins), looking for fun things to do and good places to stay on the way. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you take I-65 south,The Space Center in Hunstville, AL (http://rocketcenter.com) is worth a stop. There is a campground on the site. I think you have to call for reservations. Another option is Monte Sano State Park on top of the mountain in Hunstville. 2nd the comment on the Naval Aviation Museum, it is great. Also, a little east of Pensacola at Blackwater River State Park you can take canoe trips. Beautiful river with white sand beaches and sand bars.

You might check out the Natchez parkway. No commercial vehicles, no billboards, and beautiful scenery from Nashville to Natchez ms. From Natchez you could drive down to Gulfport/New Orleans and come across coastal mississippi, Alabama and on into Pensacola.

Huntsville is a good stop. Heading south from there, Oak Mountain State Park near Birmingham is nice and a good base to use to explore the city. Lots of good restaurants and breweries along with museums and zoo.
If you continue south on I-65, another good stop is Maeher State Park on causeway outside Mobile. You can visit the Gulfquest museum , Mardi Gras museum and the cascading mums are coming in at Bellengraph Gardens.

Another option is to detour east to either Desoto State Park or Cheaha State Park in Alabama or Cloudland Canyon in western Georgia and enjoy some fall foliage and hiking.
If you stay on I-65 and want to stop in the Montgomery area, Sherling Lake is a nice city run park in Greenville.

Gulf Quest Maritime Museum and the Battleship in Mobile Al is a good stop.
At Gulf Quest they have a small cafe with good food that you can sit outside and watch Mobile River ship traffic.

The Battleship has better parking with your trailer. Tight parking at Gulf Quest with a camper

All are excellent suggestions! We were 10 year residents down there near Orange Beach, AL and the only thing I would add would be a stop in B'ham at the Barber Motor Sports Museum and track. In you are at all into Motorcycles, the Barber museum is astonishing. When in Pensacola, make sure you get to Joe Patti's seafood market before you leave...you will thank me later! The Natchez Trace south from Nashville is a wonderful Fall drive if you want to travel at a relaxing pace. Be safe and have fun!
