Deep South vacations 2020 & 2021

Travel in times of uncertainty
With practical guidance, our flexibility promise and inspirational tools for travel planning, you can book with confidence with Audley.

Full of easy charm, the South offers beaches, bayous and mountains, distinct musical and gastronomic traditions and evidence of a complex, turbulent history. Our specialists can design you a trip to the South that takes in the region’s many pleasures, from the leafy streets of Charleston and Savannah to boisterous New Orleans, where they can suggest the best place to enjoy live jazz or a bowl of gumbo. Meanwhile, in Nashville and Memphis, you can join guided tours that give you a behind-the-scenes look at the music industry’s past and present.

Outside the cities, you can discover the South’s antebellum heritage at plantations, whose stately façades hide a brutal past, or on a languid cruise down the wide, slow waters of the Mississippi. Your trip to the South could also include ways to explore the region’s natural beauty, such as its fine-sand beaches, steamy bayous and the Great Smoky Mountains.
