A FEAST FOR THE SENSES

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.

FALL OPTIONS

Fall is the Southeast’s Secret Season

Autumn’s palette is on spectacular display in the Southeast. Colors first pop in the Great Smoky Mountains in September, and they head eastward until November when they reach the ocean. (Explore streams and waterfalls.) Beaches, fresh seafood, and coastal culture, including Charleston and Savannah, are also intimate experiences in the fall—the tourists have packed up their bags.

Imagine a romantic mountain retreat with 360° views. Mineral pools. Stunning sunsets that highlight crimson foliage. Leisurely, championship golf. Walks through ancient forests. Taking a drive to the Outer Banks and catching a glimpse of wild ponies. Picking up shells that hold the Atlantic’s secrets and tucking them in your pocket. Sleeping well in a resort by the shore.

Get out into nature and breathe. Listen to the music . . . there are 460 species of birds in North Carolina alone. Head to Savannah or Charleston and take a midnight walk through the most haunted towns in America, perfect for Halloween season. Vineyards, too, grace the hills in America’s southeast—they roll warm colors up lush hills. The Southeast is autumn’s quiet revelation.

WINTER OPTIONS

Winter is Soft in America’s Southeast

Winter is the perfect time for a Southeast vacation. The temperatures are mild on the coast. They’re inland-perfect in Louisville—a great place to enjoy world-class bourbon in front of a fire. The south is in love with holidays. In the winter, there are light shows in the hills, and in the cities, through January. Stay in a cozy historic hotel, a horse farm, or a resort on the shore. The choices are all yours, and all are sublime.

Consider renting a 4-wheel drive and exploring the Outer Banks’ National Wildlife Refuge. Feel the freedom as you cruise an unspoiled beach and catch sight of wild mustangs and endangered turtles. Back in town, you’ll find that historic sites and exquisite restaurants are open and welcoming. No push or rush in winter—just ease and charm.

Charleston has often been named the best small city in America by Condé Nast. Nearby Savannah is a jewel. Streets offer unique shopping, musicians, and local art vendors. Savannah’s legendary squares are a fine place to picnic, her cemeteries are an eerie wonder, and the largest wildlife refuge on the Atlantic is just off her coast. There are snowy adventures, dazzling light shows, and serene beaches to explore during winter in the Southeast.

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.

Feel the rhythm Of America’s Southeast.
