A holiday to New Orleans and the Deep South is a trip down a long and complicated memory lane in which Louisiana was a French colony turned Spanish protectorate turned reluctant American purchase. The history of the Deep South is also a rich tapestry interwoven with the history of black African Americans, and on New Orleans and Deep South holidays you can visit the large plantations along the Mississippi and the perfectly preserved city of Natchez with its palatial antebellum mansions while learning how the African influence in the Deep South lead to the birth of jazz, gospel and blues. A New Orleans
holiday isn’t complete without experiencing the wonderfully eclectic music scene and exploring the vibrant streets of the French Quarter, complete with the tantalising smells of Cajun cuisine and Jambalaya. While New Orleans works well as a destination in its own right, we strongly recommend hitting the road to get a deeper cut (appropriately enough a musical term for an artist's less well known songs - often B-sides) of appreciation for the Deep South. Head cross country (Mississippi to be precise) to Memphis to pay homage at Elvis's home Graceland; and then to Country music capital Nashville in Tennessee. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Ryman's Auditorium are absolute must-sees for any budding Kenny Rogers. Next, walk the trails of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, and finally swing by Atlanta, Georgia.
