Southern USA

The southern states of the USA are an ever-changing variety of scenery, people and lifestyles. From the unhurried feeling of life in the sunshine of Florida and its wonderful varieties of seafood, through the old southern charm of Louisiana and the creole cooking of gumbo and jambalaya, to the warmth of the Texan summer and the delights of international TexMex dishes and onward through the desert to California, vibrant, stimulating, and home to about every flavour of food in the USA.

You can cruise into the Caribbean from New Orleans or the Pacific from Los Angeles. There’s the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, or Memphis and Graceland, grand steamboats on the Mississippi and of course the spectacular rift in the ground called the Grand Canyon. Everywhere you are there is something exciting to do.
