There are few countries greater for adventure seekers than the United States. Each region is wildly different and the natural landscape and cities are the perfect environments for action and excitement. One area which is sometimes overlooked when it comes to vacations is the deep south. This is a shame, as it is a very beautiful part of the country with intriguing culture that is quite unlike anywhere else. In terms of music, food and natural beauty, it is hard to top the deep south.

Here are a few of the best places in the deep south to explore when on an adventure tour organised by a company like Grand American Adventures:

New Orleans

An incredibly lively and vibrant city, it is hard not to get caught up in the fun-loving atmosphere here. New Orleans is famed for Creole and Cajun cuisine, soulful jazz music in the streets and stunning architecture. Party animals will love it and especially if they coincide their holiday with the world-famous Mardi Gras festival. 

Whilst New Orleans is a fun and indulgent place, it also has a fascinating history to uncover which is all part of the adventure.

Nashville is best known for its country music. Adventure-seekers will adore the honky tonk bars and jazz cafes that line the streets, but Nashville has many other things going for it. There are around 100 parks and green areas that are great for relaxing or exploring, whilst history buffs will enjoy attractions like Forts Nashborough, Negley and the Tennessee State Museum.

This hidden gem often turns out to be people’s favourite city in the deep south. Located on the legendary Mississippi River, Natchez is a small and welcoming place that epitomises southern hospitality. Natchez also has amazing architecture as the oldest settlement in the state, plus you can delve into the fascinating history at the Natchez National Historical Park and African American History Museum.

Found in the picturesque state of Alabama, Birmingham plays an important part in American history as one of the focal points of the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King was also a pastor here -you can learn all about this at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.

Birmingham has undergone quite a transformation in recent times. It is now filled with brilliant bars, restaurants, galleries, museums and more to enjoy.

The deep south is a stunning part of the United States with many great cities to explore. It also has plenty of history and culture to uncover which is a key part of any adventure.
