we are going to be visiting Arles,Nimes ect...and then driving to Montpellier. I was researching the camarague thinking on our way to montpellier to drive through the area. I have done some research on some of the towns to stop in but not sure which ones are ones we should not miss.
any suggestions would be helpful.

Sts. Maries de la Mere is pleasant, though I would not call it "must-not-miss." You can eat lunch there, rent bikes, and take a boat ride up the Petite Rhone. The church there has particular significance to the Roma (Gypsies).

While I wouldn't put it on the "must see" list, we really enjoyed Sts. Maries. We biked along the coast and saw hundreds of flamingos and the white horses in the fields. It was just a nice day out in the country - away from all the tourists and busyness.
