This trip gives you time to enjoy the South's music and food—from Elvis's Graceland to Creole cooking in New Orleans and grand antebellum hospitality in Natchez.
You'll enjoy Insider moments like... experiencing Southern hospitality at two period homes in one amazing evening. Joe Stone plays the piano for you as you sip a beverage, while Esther Carpenter – once listed among America's top 20 female chefs – invites you to dinner. It's getting to know the home of Rock n' Roll with our passionate Memphis expert, and learning about the city's role in the civil rights movement. And it's learning about ‘white gold' and the stark contrasts between life on a modern and pre-Civil War cotton plantation.
9 nights' accommodations, 9 full breakfasts, 4 dinners.
