The South

Journey through America’s Deep South and experience true Southern hospitality and the diversity of landscapes, cultures and history of this vast region. From the colonial grandeur of Georgia’s antebellum mansions to the majesty of the mighty Mississippi River, from The Shoals of Alabama to Louisiana’s bayou country, the sights and sounds of the Deep South will make for a truly memorable holiday.

Each state has its own unique points of interest and attractions. Huntsville, Alabama has the largest space museum in the world, its exhibits including an authentic Saturn V moon rocket. Kentucky is home to Mammoth Cave National Park, the world’s longest cave system. Georgia’s Stone Mountain, near Atlanta, is one of the largest single masses of exposed granite in the world. While in Georgia, visit Savannah’s brand-new American Prohibition Museum, where visitors will meet gangsters, flappers and rum-runners, and learn how to make the still-illicit moonshine. New Orleans, Louisiana, is not only known for its annual Mardi Gras festival but also has more historic districts than any other city in the US. Still in Louisiana, the state capital of Baton Rouge is just an hour from New Orleans, its 300 years of history and eclectic culture offering much for the visitor. Likewise, Lafayatte, at the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country and tagged the “Happiest City in America”. Add to this the fabulous music of the Mississippi Delta region, Nashville and Memphis and there you have it – a region like no other in the United States.

The South Highlights

Feeling hungry?
The most famous Southern cuisine is jambalaya, a spicy creole dish originating in Louisiana and with French and Spanish influences. Elsewhere, however, there is much to satisfy the palate. For comfort food at its best, try Kentucky’s Hot Brown, an American hot sandwich created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, while a staple of the Mississippi Delta region is tamale, a spicy cornmeal wrap cooked in corn husk. Then when the sweet tooth is calling, Goo Goo Cluster is Tennessee’s chocolate treat first created in Nashville in 1912 – and it still tastes as good today!
You may not know this…
The Shoals are a cluster of towns in the northwest corner of Alabama that are home to many famous recording studios, including Muscle Shoals, which are open to the public. Kentucky lays claim to two interesting facts: there are more barrels of bourbon than there are people, and two sisters who resided in Louisville in the late 1800s were the creators of a well-known song – Happy Birthday. For all the famous beaches in the US, Tennessee actually has more coastline than most states due to its ubiquitous rivers and lakes.
