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.
