NEW TRAVEL LAYAWAY PLAN

A FEAST FOR THE SENSES

A jambalaya of music, culture, history, and nature, the southeast is a seven-course feast, engaging your heart, mind, and soul. Walk beaches once frequented by pirates. Experience a vibrant culture shaped by French, African-Americans, Mexico, the Spanish, Indigenous cultures and Scots-Irish. Indulge in bourbon and beignets, blues and barbecues. Immerse yourself in nature at its finest—brilliant rivers and waterfalls, dark skies above the Smoky Mountains, moss-shrouded forests, and a trek on the Natchez Trace through 10,000 years of history. It’s right here, and it’s all yours.

KENTUCKY

Kentucky’s Finest—Bourbons and Distilleries

Stay in Historic Mansions and Inns on this bourbon and back roads extravaganza in the heart of blue grass country. Louisville is a handsome city and surprisingly hip, sitting on the glorious Ohio River. The small towns are gems. (Enjoy superb farm-to-table restaurants.) Head off the beaten path and discover the longest cave system on earth, complete with underground rivers. And, of course, there is the bourbon . . .

You’ll also bottle your own bourbon, and bring back a private-label wonder. Go antique shopping, indulge in a toe-tapping time with southern and soul food, feel the pulse of tradition. Relax in lush gardens and count the stars. Get into the heady beauty that is bourbon country.

SOUTH CAROLINA - GEORGIA

Charm of Southern Gems

Founded in 1670, Charleston is an enchantress with a sense of humor. Walk with a local guide by candy-colored houses, standing in a row. Discover Charleston as a walled city, protecting herself from pirates. You’ll explore the Lowcountry’s oyster-white sands, disappearing into mossy forests, and hear local stories of history and heritage. (Listen to Gullah, a language tinged with shadows and hope.) Now you’re on a schooner, plying sunset waters. A plantation with tulip trees and roaming peacocks welcomes you.

Just north is Savannah—she’s a Southern Belle with attitude and hot sauce. Her central square is antebellum mansions, shady nooks, and art-gone-wild. (We can set up a visit to the only tea plantation left in America. Amazing.) You’ll have a private tour of Savannah, from elegant homes and churches to small, lighthouse islands. We’ll arrange a hands-on cooking class, loaded with Southern hospitality and good cheer. Kick back, and fall in love with life.

We’re pleased to offer these tour add-ons: Golf at some of the finest courses in the world; Spectacular Fall Foliage experiences, late-September through mid-November; Visits to one of the many Nat’l Parks, Trails, or Historical Sites in Georgia or South Carolina.

Relax. . . Gracious Hopsitality is Real

The American Southeast is a perfect escape, a romance, and a walk through history and heritage.  (It’s also home to bourbon, blues, country music, culinary delights, and fine racehorses.) Imagine moss-covered trees, bending to the ground as two peacocks stroll past. Shop for real antiques—perhaps you’ll find some gems for sale, tucked away in someone’s barn.  Audacious art seems to spring up, organically, in small-town pockets and city galleries.

There is a laid-back ambience in the Southeast that tells time to go take a hike.  Eat pulled pork and dance in a juke joint.  Sip that signature cocktail on your hotel veranda.  Find a back road and follow it into nature at its finest—many of America’s great rivers tumble by on their way to the coast.  Limestone cliffs and sweet creeks call to herons and hummingbirds alike.  Relax. Gracious hospitality is not a cliché here, it’s real.
