When Do You Want To Go?


This 14-day self-drive tour begins in vibrant Chicago, on the banks of Lake Michigan, with time to explore the city and of course visit the House of Blues Jazz Club. Visit the famous St. Louis Arch, get up close and personal with 'The King' in Graceland while in Memphis and drive through the heart of the Delta Blues and along the banks of the Mississippi. You'll soon be dancing in the street in New Orleans, following in the footsteps of legends in Nashville and rounding off this adventure in cultural hub Atlanta.


Day 1 & 2: Chicago

Arrive in Chicago and collect your car before exploring the city, perhaps take a stroll along the Lakefront or hire a bike to take in the city parks. Soak up the vibrant art scene and the interesting architecture that Chicago is known for.

Day 3: St. Louis

Leave Chicago behind and head towards St. Louis and those with a head for heights might take the fascinating tram ride to the top of the 630-foot Gateway Arch for spectacular views. Back on the ground you might like to hop on-board the 19th century paddle-wheel replica boat for a cruise down the Mississippi.

Day 4 & 5: Memphis

The next stop is the iconic city of Memphis, otherwise known as the City of Soul! Visit Graceland, the legendary home of the late Elvis Presley, check out the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum or simply grab a seat at one of the many live music venues and soak up that unique Memphis vibe.

Day 6: Vicksburg

Depart Memphis and travel south, stopping at Clarksdale, heart of the Delta Blues where you can visit the Delta Blues museum or perhaps Blues Alley, then continue to Vicksburg.

Day 7 & 8: New Orleans

Nicknamed the ‘Big Easy’ New Orleans is known for its vibrant nightlife, thriving music scene, colonial architecture, delicious creole cuisine and festive flair.  The sound of jazz, brass, soul and R&B are never far away and you might find the best plan in New Orleans is to have no plan at all.

Day 9: Birmingham

Stop in Birmingham for a visit to the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame and hear the brave stories of the Freedom Riders in the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. You may also be tempted to head over to the Talladega Superspeedway to watch the bumper crunching NASCARs.

Day 10 & 11: Nashville

Next, head on to Nashville, where the Country Music Hall of Fame sets the scene for this musical city. Catch a show at the Grand Ole Opry, visit the Johnny Cash Museum or take a tour of the celebrated Ryman Auditorium.

Day 12: Chattanooga

Set in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and along the beautiful Tennessee River sits the pretty city of Chattanooga. Take a trip on the railway up Lookout Mountain and on to Ruby Falls waterfall and the beautiful Rock City.

Day 13 & 14: Atlanta

The final stop on this Deep South Adventure is Atlanta, the cultural hub of the Southeast. This bustling city is full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered and is adorned with manicured gardens and open green parks. With a wealth of activities on offer, this city is the perfect end to an unforgettable road trip.
