Deep South / Carolinas and Georgia

Filled with rich culinary traditions, world-renowned hospitality, complex history and the birthplace of modern music, a visit to the Deep South is a journey to the soul of America. Get a taste for what this unique region has to offer with this 11-day journey starting in Kentucky, finishing in Georgia, and stopping at some of the South’s most iconic locations along the way.

You’ll arrive in the Cincy Region, often called the gateway to the Deep South, driving to the heart of Kentucky’s horse county and bluegrass the very next day. An overnight in Lexington will be followed by two nights in Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville. Home to the world-famous horse race, the Kentucky Derby, and boasting a culture filled with bourbon and history, you’ll get a true taste of Southern hospitality.

Next up is Bowling Green, where you’ll be inducted into the history behind America’s iconic Sports Car, the Corvette. You’ll then carry on to America’s Music City: Nashville. The capital of country music, the city strikes a chord with music lovers of any genre. Continue to Alabama’s music capital, Muscle Shoals, where the soul, rock ‘n’ roll and blues sounds of the Sixties and Seventies were born, before spending a day learning about America’s Civil Rights history in Birmingham. You’ll end your stay in one of the South’s most impressive cities: Atlanta. From rich history to contemporary cultural attractions, you’ll find plenty to do and see before you leave.

Our expert's opinion

“This trip combines some incredible destinations of the Deep South. Kentucky is a state I had never really thought about until I visited, and it left a long-lasting impression on me. It is absolutely gorgeous, and the countryside, the horse culture and the bourbon will wow anyone. No trip to Nashville is complete without a trip to Broadway or the Grand Ole Opry to experience the “Hollywood” of country music and visit some amazing museums. What I love is you also get to end the trip in another underrated state – Alabama. A trip there will leave you thinking about its rich history, southern hospitality and of course good music!”
