Deep South Road Trip Inspiration

America is a land that is designed to be explored by car and some of the world’s greatest road trips are situated within this incredible country. In this article, we will focus on some of the places you could take in if you decide to head on a trip around the ‘Deep South’. Situated in the southeast of the country, some of the most iconic cities and sights in the USA are located right here. So, let’s take it state by state and talk about some of the places that are not to be missed out on.

The capital city of Atlanta is also a cultural capital that features the famous High Museum of Art and is also renowned as being the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. Another city that many people like to take in when they are passing through Georgia is Savannah which sits by the seaside and is the oldest city in the entire state. The 19th century Cathedral of John the Baptist is the famous landmark here.


No trip to the Deep South would be complete without visiting the iconic city of New Orleans. French, African and American cultures all intertwine and live music is very much at the heart of this place. Bourbon Street is the place where the party really gets going so you won’t want to miss a trip here. Beyond New Orleans, you can take a trip over to Lake Charles and enjoy one of the many annual festivals that take place here. A stay in the Comfort Suites Lake Charles is an excellent option. And there are also plenty of other places around the southwest of the state to see.

Another iconic US state, a great way to enjoy Mississippi is on the the Natchez Trace Parkway which takes you 444 miles through a large portion of the state. The Delta region is renowned as being the birthplace of blues music and the best place to pay homage to this musical style is at the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale.

Montgomery may not be one of the most well-known state capitals, but it is still a place that is worth visiting if you are interested in the history of the Civil Rights movement. Birmingham is another city which many people pay a visit to when they are passing through Alabama, and you could also stop off in the coastal town of Mobile which is just a stone’s throw away from Dauphin Island.


Music is the central theme in Tennessee as well, mainly through the famous destinations of Memphis and Nashville. The former is renowned as being the birthplace of the musical legend, Elvis Presley, while the latter is a country music haven where you can discover more about iconic figures like Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash.

As you can see, the Deep South is a place where you could easily roadtrip around for months on end, so pick your destinations carefully before visiting.
