Top 10 Things to Do in the South

Make the most of your time in the United States – get out and explore!


1. Experience jazz culture

In New Orleans, Louisiana, duck into a club in the French Quarter, catch a brass band parade, or toss a tip to the street performers in the birthplace of Dixie.

2. Cool off with some sweet tea

Kick back in a hammock or lawn chair and enjoy this classic Southern beverage – the perfect addition to any lazy afternoon.

3. Visit the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute

Learn about the work of Martin Luther King, Jr., and civil rights leaders from America and abroad, at this famous Alabama institute.

4. Rock out in Austin

There’s a reason that this Texas city is called the live music capital of the world. Whether you visit an outdoor festival or one of nearly 100 venues that feature live music each night, put on your dancing shoes and get down.

5. Discover your favorite style of barbecue

Maybe you’ll like South Texas’ sweet, smoky sauces – maybe you’ll prefer the chopped beef or pork of East Texas. Eat your way across the Lone Star State to find out which you like best!

6. Go to a rodeo

Cheer on contestants at one of these Texas events as they ride bucking broncos and wrangle wild steers. If you really want to look the part, spring for a pair of authentic cowboy boots.

7. Take a steamboat ride along the Mississippi

Get aboard a steam-powered paddleboat and learn about the history of this 2,340-mile river on a relaxing cruise.

8. Tour a historic Southern plantation

Walk the grounds of one of these magnificent farming properties while learning about the region’s history. Many are in states that make up the Deep South, including Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.

9. People watch on South Beach in Miami

Everyone from models, to movie stars, and local eccentrics flock to the white sands of Miami Beach in Florida. Stake out a spot, sit back, and enjoy the show!

10. Tour the Coca-Cola headquarters in Georgia

Enjoy interactive exhibits, a 4D theater, watch the actual bottling process, and step inside the vault that holds Coke’s secret formula.

Stay safe and have fun!
