The Deep South of America is a great self-drive destination and the perfect place for getting to know the real America. While Nashville, Atlanta, Memphis and many other cities in this area have already made great names for themselves, there are lesser known areas that also have plenty to offer.

Alabama

Nestled in the heart of the American Deep South, Alabama has a flavour all of its own. Award winning cuisine, the best barbecue and fresh seafood fresh from the Gulf. Visit the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute which details the city’s role in the movement which changed America. Montgomery, Alabama’s capital city was home to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Rosa Parks museum tells this inspirational story. International superstars including Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and The Rolling Stones all came to Muscle Shoals, the ‘Hit Recording Capital of the World’ to record songs in the 60s and 70s. For thrill seekers, the U.S. Space and Rocket Centre in Huntsville has simulators that allow visitors to experience a space shot, G-force and weightlessness. The port city of Mobile is home of the very first Mardi Gras which took place in 1703 and is still celebrated today.

Mississippi

Mississippi is the birthplace of America's music, home of literary and artistic legends. The cradle of the civil rights movement, battleground of the civil war, land of catfish and tamales. It is paradise for adventurers and centre stage for round-the-clock entertainment and year-round play.

Louisiana

Louisiana’s unique people and its rich history, culture and landscapes have been featured in numerous books and stories over the years. Now you can experience this for yourself by visiting the state that boast fabulous cuisine, music that sets your soul free, hundreds of year round festivals, a diverse, exotic and colourful history, Tax Free Shopping and good ol’ Southern hospitality!

Tennessee

Whether in the major cities of Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville or Chattanooga, or in some of America's most inspiring small towns, like Franklin, Collierville or Cleveland, Tennessee delivers hospitality and a true American experience.

Kentucky

It could be argued that Daniel Boone was the first to appreciate the tourism potential of the Bluegrass State. When he crossed Cumberland Gap from Virginia into Kentucky in 1767, he was impressed by what he saw – towering peaks of the Appalachians, vast stands of virgin forest, shimmering lakes and waterways plus a wealth of resources. Boone knew that where he went, others would follow.
