Boogie & Blues: The Southern U.S. By Design


tour: F8D
8 days from New Orleans to Nashville
On this 8-day tour through The South, spend your days your way. More turn-of-the-century architecture or another sweet tea? March in the footsteps of Civil Rights heroes or boogie through rhythm and blues? Harper Lee mysteries or Helen Keller histories? A Kayak on the tributaries or a schooner along the coast? No matter what floats your boat, with complimentary YourChoice excursions, y’all are in for a toe-tapping, lip-smacking, memory-packing ride from New Orleans to Nashville.

Why This Tour has all the Fixins:
  • An immersive, cultural experience through the soul of the Old South, from the Magnolia State to Music City.
  • A trip through time with sultry nights, soul-food bites, and historic sites of the legends, leaders, and lesser-known heroes of the South.
  • Included YourChoice Excursions in Biloxi, Montgomery, and Florence.
  • Heavens to Betsy!
