The Blog Single


    I have learned from my travels across America that the US is more like a collection of small countries rather than a cohesive cultural unit. Each region has its own culture, language, and norms. Even within the same state, there are many differences.

    I was surprised that “the South”, defined as the Confederacy, states from the Mason-Dixon line down to the Mississippi River and Mexico. Although Texas was also part of the Confederacy, it is not generally considered part of “the Old South” because it is Texas.

    Growing up in the northern part of the country, I was accustomed to seeing it as “backwards.” But after several trips around the region, my perceptions were incorrect.

    It was a place I loved spending time in. The South is not without its faults, but it offers much more diversity and history than I had previously believed.

    It shouldn’t be overlooked. So I thought I’d share some of my ideas for a great road trip through “the Deep South”.

    You can’t complete the South in three weeks. But you can do what I call the “Deep South”, which is Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. ).

    This region has many parks, lakes, rivers, historic sites, and other places to visit. It would take you more than three weeks to see the whole thing, but this route will give you an idea of what it looks like.

    Not to be confused with the many routes you could take through this area. These are just a few highlights of the three-week version. You can customize the route to suit your needs!

    New Orleans

    This unique mix of cultures (Africans, French, Caribbean, Latin, etc. New Orleans is one of America’s most diverse cities. It is filled with legends about ghosts and vampires, beautiful architecture, delicious food, and some of the best music. Bourbon Street is always full of tourists. Frenchmen Street is filled with jazz. There are also historic buildings to see and tours that you can enjoy. It’s possible to spend a whole week here without getting bored.

    We only have a few more days, so let’s get started.

    • Bourbon Street Party – Although this is obvious, you should still visit Bourbon Street. It’s touristy but also very exciting. There are many musicians, buskers and parades. It is the heartbeat of the city.
    • Explore the Garden District and French Quarter. These are the most historic and popular areas in the city. You can spend some time walking around the city, admiring old French buildings and mansions, or join Take Walking, which offers fun and informative tours.
    • The National World War II Museum is America’s largest museum dedicated exclusively to war. It is also one of the most renowned museums in the world. The museum’s unique use of audio, video and personal stories helps to tie together the story of the war in amazing detail. It is much more personal and powerful to hear firsthand accounts. Adult admission costs USD 29.50.
    • Take a ghost or voodoo tour. NOLA has a dark past. The best way to find out is to take a ghost or voodoo tour. You will be able to visit cemeteries and explore haunted places, as well as hear strange tales and anecdotes.
    • Enjoy live music on Frenchmen Street. This spirited street is second to Bourbon Street. There are many places to hear blues or jazz, but my favourite spot is the Spotted Cat.

    New Orleans is also a great place to eat. I love Lilly’s Cafe and Bearcat. Welty’s Deli is also a favourite place to indulge. Jewel of the South, Acme Oyster House and Jewel of the South are some of my favourites.


    • New Orleans is my favourite hostel in New Orleans and one of the most prestigious in the world.
    • Auberge NOLA This hostel hosts nightly events and parties, making it super easy to meet new people.
    • India House Backpackers Hotel – Another wild party hostel with a swimming pool and live music.

    Mississippi & Alabama Gulf Coast

    • Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is a great place to start. This small town is known for its beautiful white-sand beaches and various outdoor activities such as fishing, stand-up paddling, canoeing and kayaking. There are many galleries and shops downtown.
    • Next, travel to Mobile, Alabama. Next, visit Fort Conde (built-in 1723 by the French) and tour the USS Alabama (a World War II ship docked at Battleship Memorial Park). To learn more about Mardi Gras and its cultural significance, visit the Carnival Museum.
    • You can cruise from here to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Here you will find miles of beautiful beaches and subtropical weather while you take in the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. If you’re feeling extravagant, there are plenty of resorts and hotels. It’s fun and tacky.
