Your Deep South Adventure is waiting for you

'Sweet Home Alabama' is a state immortalised in the lyrics of the legendary song. Nestled in the heart of the American Deep South, Alabama has a flavour all of its own! Award winning cuisine, the best barbecue and fresh from the Gulf seafood is washed down with the traditional Alabama sweet tea and served with a generous helping of southern hospitality.

In Kentucky you will find the Horse Capital of the World (Lexington), makers of 95% of the world’s Bourbon, longest cave system in the world (Mammoth Cave National Park), the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad Ali and Bill Monroe (Father of Bluegrass Music). Kentucky also host large music festivals like ROMP and Forecastle, and food festivals including the International BBQ Festival (Owensboro), Kentucky Bourbon Festival (Bardstown) and World Chicken Festival (London).

Louisiana is a place where you can Feed Your Soul - a state with so much diversity that just a short drive takes you to another world within the state’s borders. No place in America is better known for incredible indigenous food and music. Our cuisine is legendary no matter which part of the state you visit. Cajun and Creole delicacies – dishes with curious names like gumbo, jambalaya and étouffée and the best in Gulf of Mexico seafood – are at every turn, found alongside unique Louisiana spins on more traditional Southern fare.

A visit to Mississippi would not be complete without touring one of the state's beautiful historic homes. Natchez, with its elegant mansions, boasts the most of these grand estates, but they can also be found in Vicksburg, Meridian, Columbus, Rolling Fork and the Gulf Coast as well. Stay overnight in one for an authentic and unforgettable night.

Tennessee is one of a kind. Experience the allure of our music, beauty, family adventure and history. Find it by losing yourself in the breath-taking beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, where the fog's so thick you can’t tell where the world ends and heaven begins. A place, where you can conquer the Appalachian Trails in the morning, then plummet back down to earth in the afternoon with ride after ride at Dollywood. Discover the grandeur of the mighty Mississippi River rolling through the land of the blues, rock and soul in Memphis. Or, experience the relaxation of driving through the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee with the top down, stopping to soak in our storied history.

There’s no better way to discover the real USA than by having the flexibility and convenience of driving your own car. Explore the open road at your pace, stop when it suits you and take the time to explore all that this amazing continent has to offer. Driving in the USA is easy and enjoyable, the roads are well maintained and the petrol considerably cheaper than it is in in the UK.
