Start your Deep South road trip in the Country Music Capital of the World, Nashville. Steeped in art, music, culture and history, there is no shortage of things to do. Visit Bluebird Café, the iconic listening room which discovered some of the world’s most famous country music artists including Garth Brooks, Faith Hill and Taylor Swift. Visit the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Thanks to the abundance of honky Tonks downtown and the small local venues in the city’s charming neighbourhoods, visitors are sure to enjoy a truly authentic country music experience in Nashville.
Your next stop is Memphis, birthplace of The King, Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin, this famous city brings you everything from Rock N Roll, Blues and Jazz!. Take a tour of Sun Studio, the most famous recording studio in the world to see where it all began. Take a stroll down legendary Beale Street, sample the famous Memphis soul food and enjoy the entertainment in any of the 25 music venues along the route! Outside of the music scene, visitors can immerse themselves in history at the evocative Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel.
From here, you’ll head to Natchez, the Jewel of the Mississippi River. Spend time exploring this riverside city, renowned for its beautifully restored historic house museums, cultural sites, and picturesque parks, before you hit the road for New Orleans. This part of your road trip takes you through some of the most picturesque areas of the Deep South, the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors with activities such as horse riding, hiking, biking through beautiful forest trails and lush countryside.
