Historic and hectic cities, passion for music and pretty coastal getaways in Dixie – the South is unmissable.

Explore the most soulful cities in the USA on holidays to Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans.

From Creole cooking and Cajun festivals to rock n roll and jazz, the south is smooth and swish in that cool kid kind of way. It’s jambalaya and gumbo. It’s dive bars and top chef restaurants. Its musical heritage and Civil Rights history. Visit Nashville and you’ll hear that famous Tennessee country music everywhere from tiny bars to the historic Grand Ole Opry. Dive into Memphis and you’ll get a big taste of soul, gospel and blues. Take a trip to New Orleans and you could be drinking rum punch on Bourbon Street, breezing through the French markets on Jackson Street and cruising along the Mississippi River in a stately steamboat. The South has a soundtrack unlike anywhere else in the USA. With all its brilliance spread at your feet you’ll find an intoxicating combination of rocking recording studios. Legendary barbecue joints, musical landmarks, cultural legacy and southern hospitality. For flavour hunters, music lovers and history buffs, there’s nothing quite like the South.
