The Deep South
The American Deep South's four major states, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, all share a rich and innovative culture, history and heritage. Driving through the Deep South could not be a more hospitable experience. There is such a relaxed feel here. Locals are only too pleased to help out whether it is giving directions or serving some of those sumptuous Southern specialities.
