Day 5 Nashville

Y’all ready? It’s time to hoe-down in Nashville, the country music mecca of the USA. Squeeze in some time to see Elvis’s golden Cadillac or take a stroll down to the Music Row Area and pick up a few records.

Day 6 Memphis

Swap the cowboy hat and harmonica for air guitars and dark sunglasses - it’s time to head to Memphis, the home of the Blues. If the soothing sounds of this soulful town don’t float your boat, perhaps the National Civil Rights Museum might be a worthwhile alternative.

Days 7-8 New Orleans

Head south to Louisiana and get acquainted with a place they call ‘The Big Easy’. Not a town to get too down on itself, see how the citizens of New Orleans have rebuilt their lakeside city with the famous Bourbon St spirit still well and truly intact.

Days 12-13 Orlando

Indulge your inner child in Orlando, home of Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. Or take advantage of adulthood by sampling the diverse nightlife on offer in this quirky city.

Days 14-15 Miami

After checking out the lagoons and waterways of Ft Lauderdale, hit the Art Deco decadence of South Beach. An up-and-comer in the USA’s arts scene, Miami may be getting a little more sophisticated in its old age, but it still knows how to party with the best of them.
