Tour Itinerary

View historic houses in Charleston, explore the dark and mysterious side of Savannah, get into the country groove in Nashville, learn about the blues in Memphis, eat Cajun-style food and party on Bourbon Street

There aren't many places in the U.S. — or the world, frankly — that can match the Deep South for charm, character, and quirkiness. This 12-day trip pulls back the curtain on this unique part of the country by way of groovy Charleston, cosmopolitan Atlanta, sultry Savannah, the Elvis mecca of Memphis, and other hot spots, while serving up heaping helpings of colonial estates, Cajun cuisine, jazz, country, and blues music, whiskey, and fun. It's different down here. Way different. Come on down and git yer drawl on, y'all.
