A holiday in the Deep South can be a short city break holiday to Memphis or New Orleans, or a 2 - 3 week fly drive holiday touring and visiting sights of your choice at your own leisure.
On a holiday in the Deep South of America, you will enjoy the history, culture, music and exotic food while exploring the amazing landscapes along the way including the beaches of Alabama, the blues music of Tennessee, the champion golf courses of Georgia and the vibrant, colourful state of Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf coast.
Alabama is situated in the centre of the Deep South of America and within easy reach of Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. Here you will find breath-taking scenery of mountains, canyons and lakes along with beautiful sandy beaches. If you are a music enthusiast, be sure to visit the Jazz Hall of Fame in Tuscumbia. Montgomery, the state capital of Alabama is home to the Montgomery Zoo and features over 500 animals from five continents. It is spread over 40 acres and has endangered species including African elephants, lions and giraffes and exotic wildlife - this zoo is worth a visit for any adventure holiday.
For more of a culture holiday, discover the hidden secrets of Georgia by travelling along the Antebellum Trail, visiting homes and battle sites. Visit the Marietta History Museum and the Gone With The Wind Movie Museum. For a real taste of the authenticity and history of the old South, visit Savannah, a beautifully preserved architecture city, buried in time with its cobblestone streets and gaslight lamps.
The state of Louisiana is the home of jazz and Cajun foods. Visit the New Orleans Museum of Art and the delights of local cuisine sampling jambalaya, crawfish and gumbo. New Orleans is the largest city in Louisiana known as Hollywood South and visitors can see the city by taking a Movie Tour visiting over 50 locations. Take a tour of the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin the largest in America and where the Atchafalaya River and Gulf of Mexico converge. New Orleans is also a great destination for a city break holiday - we recommend soaking up the atmosphere on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras for an experience to remember!
If embarking on a Deep South multi-centre holiday, be sure to include Mississippi with its upmarket resorts and beautiful beaches. For a luxury holiday, there are many 5 star deluxe hotels for you to choose from, many with their own casino and spa. To give the kids a treat there are plenty of attractions at Lynn Meadows Discovery Centre and Mississippi Museum or maybe the birthplace of Kermit the Frog at Leland.
Tennessee has a colourful history which is dominated by the Civil War of America. There are historical battlefields where visitors can mark the Civil War Trail taking in the Battle of Franklin and President Johnson's home in Greenville. Memphis, the home of the blues is a must for any music fan. There are numerous festivals held throughout the year including the Honky-Tonk in Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry. No visit to Memphis would be complete without a visit to the home of Elvis Presley, the impressive Graceland. The Natchez Trace Parkway runs from Mississippi to Tennessee, a journey that can also be taken on horseback, cycling or self-drive and stretches for a distance of 444 miles.
