The Deep South, USA

America’s melting pot, gateway to the Mississippi River and where the east meets the west. Holidays to the Deep South bring you to the heart of the region that brought us blues and jazz music, created unique creole cuisine and offers an enchanting blend of sub tropical scenery. Explore the narrow streets and music venues of New Orleans then venture out to discover the swamps and bayous of the unique Louisiana coast. Learn about the history and heritage of a bygone era at a majestic plantation house and embark on the Rhythm Road to country music’s capital, Nashville, and home of The King at Graceland, Memphis. On your Deep South road trip visit the Smoky Mountains, perhaps with a stop at Dollywood, before kicking back in the evening with a smooth glass of Kentucky bourbon or Tennessee whiskey.
