Generally speaking, you could follow U.S. 11 most of the way; I-59/75/81 will take most of the traffic, leaving (mostly) tolerable roads. Google says that's 1,600 miles, so if you can average 50 miles/day, plan on 5-6 weeks (plus time to stop and smell the roses/see the sights). That assumes you can figure out how to get past Lake Ponchartrain.

Since this is your first tour, you'd be well advised to spend some time reading https://www.adventurecycling.org/res...to-department/ and the links therein.

Planning a route can be a lot of fun.
