Overview

As the Official promoters of the Deep South USA, we have everything you need to know to plan a great holiday to America’s Southern States of Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi & Tennessee.

The Deep South has been responsible for the birth of America’s music, the invention of the cocktail, and has a world-renowned reputation for its amazing hospitality. And then there’s the food! Although the food of the South was a relative secret until recently, the culinary world now knows it has all the hallmarks of what makes the region great.

In the Deep South, you’re only a song away from authentic adventures for music fans, history buffs and aficionados of ‘Only in America’ while home style cooking, star-studded cuisine and friendly smiles await around every corner, just down the road from breath-taking natural beauty.

Thanks to the popular culture such as Sweet Home Alabama and Forrest Gump the name Alabama often evokes expectations of cute country towns and simple living. However, Alabama’s larger cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville and Mobile also offer chic restaurants, stylish bars, superb museums and galleries showcasing Alabama’s history and heritage.

Kentucky offers a true taste of America – its people, flavours, sounds, and stunning landscape. Find bourbon tours, horse farms and scenic beauty at every turn. Pay homage to two native sons – Abraham Lincoln and Muhammad Ali. Marvel at Mammoth Cave National Park, the largest cave system in the world. Delve into the USA’s love affair with a sports car at the National Corvette Museum. Savour the culinary scene, explore the scenic beauty or jam to bluegrass music.

Louisiana’s unique people and its rich history, culture and landscapes have been featured in numerous books and stories over the years. Now you can experience it all for yourself by visiting the State that boast fabulous cuisine, music that sets your soul free, hundreds of year round festivals, a diverse, exotic and colourful history, Tax Free Shopping, and good ol’ Southern hospitality!

Mississippi is the birthplace of America’s music, home of literary and artistic legends. The cradle of the Civil Rights movement, battleground of the Civil War, land of catfish and tamales. It is paradise for adventurers and centre stage for round-the-clock entertainment and year-round play. Mississippi is the place where so many creative people have found their peace, their comfort and their passion. Discover your true inspiration in places frozen in time. This is Mississippi… Find Your True South.

Whether exploring the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, savouring slow-cooked barbeque with a smooth glass of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey, visiting some of music’s most legendary homes & landmarks, or soaking up the sweet sound of the blues, country, rock, and everything in between; it’s an experience that can only be… Made In Tennessee.
Y’all come on!
