Day 1: Atlanta Arrival
Arrive in Atlanta. Pick up your car and proceed to your hotel.

Day 2: Atlanta
Enjoy a day in Atlanta, which started as railroad junction in the 1830s and quickly became the transport hub of the South. Its strategic importance was a large part of the reason it made such an inviting target for General Sherman's Union Army, which razed it during the Civil War. Visit Fairlie-Poplar, the African American Panoramic Experience, Grant Park or the Atlanta History Center.

Day 3: Atlanta - Nashville
Along the way, stop to see the Chattanooga "Choo Choo" train. In Lynchburg tour the legendary Jack Daniel's whisky distillery. Proceed to Nashville in the evening.

Day 4: Nashville - Memphis
Soak up the sounds in the country music capital by visiting the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Experience the South's tumultuous history at the Tennessee State Museum. Leave the city early enough to arrive in Memphis for a late dinner.

Explore the birthplace of the blues by taking in a performance in one of the entertaining Beale Street blues bars. Drive out for a tour of Elvis Presley's home Graceland; see the original bomber, Memphis Belle; or monorail to unique Mud Island.

Day 6: Memphis - Jackson
Jackson was founded in 1821 at the site of a trading post situated on a bluff on the west bank of the Pearl River. Jacksonians are extremely proud of their famed southern hospitality and attractions. Visit the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Smith-Robertson Museum and Cultural Center, along with the Old Capitol Museum and other venues.

Day 8: New Orleans
The Big Easy is a melting pot of European culture and southern charm. Stroll through the French Quarter and admire it's distinctive architectural styling, then experience the festive frenzy on Bourbon Street. Steamboat river tours onboard restored paddleboats are a great way to experience the mighty Mississippi.
