About This Trip

Real America, the part where things are going crazy with innovation, gastronomy and good times, then you need to head away from the coasts and get down south. On this 24-day road trip around four of the most incredible states, you will discover the cities that are currently putting USA travel back on the map. 


New York, LA and San Fran are all great, don't get us wrong, but they are established, they have their identities and their highlights. If you want to see where’s next, then this is the road trip for you. These southern cities, with their incredible histories, are bursting forth, building, developing and growing with the hottest music and food scenes in the entire country. Don’t believe us? Well just jump in your hire car and go see for yourself. 


On this magnificent immersion in the culture of the south, you will drive around Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee, discovering their own particular culture and delights. And, of course, the music and history that gave these states the base from which to build. 


In Texas you will visit Dallas, Grapevine and Lubbock, tasting Tex-Mex under wide open skies. In Oklahoma, you will discover a slice of the old west, refined and reimagined for the 21st Century as you visit OKC, the art-deco wonderland of Tusla. In Arkansas, Little Rock sits waiting for you in the heart of this glorious state, before you speed on to the musical heavens of Memphis and Nashville. 


Discover what makes America really tick on this self-drive adventure you will never forget.

Other Info

The USA is big and everyone thinks they know it if they have been to LA or New York. But the best of America, the ‘real’ America is hidden down south. If you want a more ‘off-the-beaten-track’ experience, then this is the one for you. 


There is so much going on every day on this incredible itinerary. Those little hidden towns, packed with outstanding ways of life, the shiny diners on the routes, the crazy roadside attractions. But while all of these, combined with the sheer wealth of natural beauty you will drive through, the real joy is discovering the up-and-coming cities of the south. 


They all have names we recognise, and they all have a rich history, but it is what is being done with these legacies that make the cities of the south so exciting. Nashville, Memphis, Tusla and OKC are all being heavily invested in, with new buildings popping up every day. This growth has pushed the busy, historic city centres into overdrive, with a wealth of new restaurants and music venues providing a party every night. And the biggest party is in your mouth as your taste buds are challenged to new expressions of classic southern cuisine.



This big trip around the south starts off in Grapevine, Texas, just minutes from Dallas Fort Worth Airport. After spending some time here, you will explore more of Texas, visiting Dallas, Lubbock and Abilene before you head into a deep dive into Oklahoma. Here you will overnight in Duncan, Oklahoma City, Bartlesville Tulsa and McAlester before heading into Arkansas. A short jaunt through Fort Smith and Little Rock brings you into your final state, Tennessee, where you will overnight in Memphis and Nashville, before heading to the airport here to meet your onward travel.

  • 24-Hour Reception Desk
