Darkness in a deep cave is really hard for some to manage. If you get claustrophobic in a building, a cavern is a lot harder. Personally I have a very hard time with caves and darkness. It's not just dark, it's absolutely without light. I can handle maybe a minute or two of that, and I'm not that claustrophobic under normal circumstances. It's hard not to freak out.

Kartchner Caverns is a must see! But you may need reservations depending on time of year. They have one of our favorite campgrounds too.
Don't dismiss NM. ROCKHOUND State Park is on your way and a wonderful place to stay. City of Rocks State Park is a bit north of I-10, but is an unforgettable campground, especially for star gazers escaping light pollution.
P.S. if you must choose Kartchner Caverns are better than Carlsbad. But I'm glad I've been to both more than once.

Both Austin and San Antonio are great cities to visit. San Antonio speaks for itself. Austin is good for walking around, visiting the capitol and the LBJ museum. We stayed at Oak Forest Campground. Nice little place 15 min. from town. They offered a nice gas grill under a lovely pavilion for guests use.

Both Austin and San Antonio have tons of places of interest. The missions in San Antonio are my favorite and I love the food in Austin. Barton Springs is really cool, too. As for Tucson, my two favorite places there are the Sonoran Desert Museum (it's really outdoor gardens) and Kartchner Caverns. You will want to make reservations there but it is well worth it, and I don't like caves.

Can't forget about The Thing between Wilcox and Benson! A classic roadside attraction in that it's kinda disappointing.

In Austin. Pecan Grove RV Park in town. Very few openings, but really cool. Close to the Hike/Bike trail around Lady Bird Lake and 6th street Music scene.
About 5 miles out of town, McKinney Falls park. Very quite and has a paved hike/bike trail around it, lots of wildlife.

If you hike, get off at the Fort Bowie exit and drop your AS. Then drive up the dirt road to the Fort Bowie trail. It's about 1 mile to the old fort. An amazing site and was right in the middle of the Apache wars.

Thanks To All Of You!

Thanks to each of you for taking your time to share your knowledge and experiences with me abou traveling I 10 from Florida to Phoenix! We are currently in NO where we visited the WW II Museum. It is a MUST SEE if you visit NO! We are staying at The French Quarter RV Resort so we haven't needed to drive the truck in NO. We took a walking tour of The French Quarter yesterday, good but in my opinion not as good as the walking tour of the garden district that we did last year. We head further west tomorrow and thanks to advice that we received from our post we are taking route 90 vs I 10. If anyone has suggestions of places to see, things to do, or places to stay in San Antonio or Tucson let us know. We plan to spend a few days in each of those cities before ending our trip in Phoenix.

In Arizona, besides those mentioned, Check out the campground in the Chiricahua Nat'l Monument. Az State Parks are outstanding as are NM Parks.
