Carolinas and Georgia

America’s South is often characterised by the musical cities of Nashville and New Orleans, Cajun culture and antebellum plantations in Louisiana, and the history of both the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama and Mississippi. But the Carolinas and Georgia have their own intrigue, distinct from the rest of the South yet linked in both history, food and world-famous Southern hospitality. Explore this lesser known side of the South on a 2-week journey where you’ll discover the true meaning of Southern Charm.

You’ll begin your trip in the modern metropolis of Atlanta. Bursting with energy and world-class culture, you’ll get an introduction to contemporary life in the South before continuing to the many historic cities that are dotted around the region. After an overnight in Macon, the place “Where Soul Lives”, you’ll head to Georgia’s coast for the landmark city of Savannah, filled with astounding architecture, exotic greenery and a fascinating past. An overnight in the white-sand Lowcountry town of Beaufort will then break up your drive over to South Carolina’s legendary city of Charleston. Renowned for its world-class dining, storied history and beautiful streets, you’ll be taken off the beaten path with a private tour of the city.

Up next is the bohemian city of Asheville in North Carolina, nestled at the base of the world-famous Blue Ridge Mountains. You’ll get a taste of the city’s incredible arts scene and a visit to its neighbour, the largest home in America, Biltmore Estate. Asheville’s proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains offers the opportunity for a day of outdoor exploration too, and you won’t want to miss a visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site. End your stay back down in Georgia at the Southern Cross Guest Ranch. A working horse ranch set against beautiful unspoiled scenery just an hour outside of Atlanta, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind for a few nights before flying back home.

Our expert's opinion

“The phrase “Southern Charm” was coined in this southern corner of the United States, and after just a few days in Georgia or the Carolinas, you’ll see why. Welcoming people, friendly cities and excellent cooking await in these southern states – not to mention the allure of old-world architecture and natural beauty!”
