Nashville, Memphis & New Orleans

The Big Easy, the spiritual home of Country, and the home of the King?  The Southern States might lack the riches of the industrial north, but they have a rich cultural and musical heritage that bewitches visitors with their laid-back southern charm.


Music City

Explore Nashville’s musical heritage at the Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and The Johnny Cash Museum.  After those cultural highlights have whetted your appetite, you’ll want to experience some live music in one of Music City’s 150 live music venues – it isn’t all country; you’ll also find pop, rock, gospel, bluegrass, jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, blues and soul.



Drive for three and a half hours across the state, through the Tennessee backwoods, and you reach another of America’s greatest music cities.  Stops on the musical pilgrimage include Sun Studio, Beale Street and the Memphis Rock and Soul Museum, but a visit to Graceland is the undisputed highlight.


New Orleans

Six hours to the south, on Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, New Orleans draws visitors to town for its April Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras celebrations, centred around buzzing Bourbon Street.  Musical heritage is deeply rooted in this town too – even if you aren’t here for Jazz Fest, you can revel in the live music scene, southern and creole culinary specialities, craft breweries and the southern pace of life in the Big Easy.


Whether you fancy a musical pilgrimage or simply want to explore the culture, history and unique natural environment of these distinctive southern states, we can help you create your ideal itinerary.
