roadtrip from Pensacola to New Orleans

Hi All! We will be traveling from Pensacola to MSY and would like to take a day or two along the route, for site seeing and fun activities. Things we would like to see are: moss covered oaks, plantations, swamps ---- you know, the kinds of things that Northerners would imagine in the South! We wont' make it to NOLA, so we're seeking site to the east.

We would greatly appreciate and suggestions or even a tip on a scenic route for our travel! Thanks!

If it was me (and it's not) , I would forego the area between Pensacola and go straight to NOLA at best speed. Make that flank speed. Sure, we have nice beaches in LA, but beaches were not on your list. Mississippi is on your route with some casinos, but the only other thing there is...well, Mississippi. NOLA has great food, great old neighborhoods and it's New Orleans! You have to go right past it to get to MSY.
