    Description
    There aren't many places in the US - or the world, frankly - that can match the Deep South for charm, character, and quirkiness. This nine-day trip pulls back the curtain on this unique part of the country by way of groovy Charleston, cosmopolitan Atlanta, sultry Savannah, the Elvis mecca of Memphis, and other hotspots while serving up heaping helpings of colonial estates, Cajun cuisine, country music, whiskey, and fun. It's different down here. Way different. Come on down and git yer drawl on, y'all.
