Si vous êtes heureux de passer plusieurs heures à conduire presque tous les jours, alors ça va.

Vous accordez très peu de temps pour voir la plupart des endroits que vous visiterez.

N'oubliez pas que a) vous changerez deux fois de fuseau horaire (voir la carte ci-dessous) et b) il suffit d'un seul accident de la route pour faire un trajet beaucoup, beaucoup plus long.

It seems you will be mainly in the USA to visit Miami, perhaps to visit family and friends, and then you will take off on this extremely fast roadtrip through the Deep South. The itinerary looks good, it’s too bad that you will be spending about half your time on interstates and just using some of these great cities to rest your head.

That's how to see the countryside...

It's pretty much exactly what I do.

Depending on what you want to do in Orlando (Disney?) that is really not enough time. It is a long drive to there from Miami. If you don't want to do Disney, just go direct to Daytona.

Unless you have family in Jacksonville or something I suggest leaving Jacksonville out of it. Either St. Augustine or Fernandina Beach would be nicer.

As for the rest of it - it looks like you are primarily interested in Memphis, New Orleans and Miami. I suggest flying to New Orleans (no point in driving there - there's no place to park), and then renting a car ther and driving to Memphis and then flying back to Miami.

It's easier for me to understand if you include how many nights in each place.
I would give at least one more full day to New Orleans (it took us one full day to drive out to see both Laura and Oak Alley Plantations and be back in time to change and eat dinner), there is so much to see there. No plans for Cajun Country such as Lafayette, LA?
I've been to Jackson, MS and there is not much to see there, take a look at Natchez instead

Quoting 55vineyard

It's easier for me to understand if you include how many nights in each place.

If you look at the timeline on the right it says how many days. Most of the time they drive to a place and spend the night and then leave for the next place. In NOLA, they have arriving on the 21st and leaving on the 23rd. So the ones where they are staying more than overnight are one day.in Memphis, one day in New Orleans and two days in Miami before they leave. Plus possibly Daytona - a short drive there from Orlando, spending the day of the 11th and leaving the 12th.
