Away from the noise and the frantic life in the big cities of the United States, the american South moves to slower, more relaxed rhythms, profoundly connected to its past but always looking into the future. You can recognize in the local residents a lifestyle full of contradictions, refined and chaotic at the same time. It is a small universe in its own with a shared history between several states; a typical drawl in the way they speak, the melting pot between different cultures, its own literature, the unprecedented music history and infinite spaces. All these things make the American South truly “great.”
Which states does it include?
When to go?
The South of the United States has a moderate climate that allows you to experience it to the fullest throughout the year, whether we are talking about vast Texas lands or scenic mountain trails from Tennessee to South Carolina and sunny beaches of Florida. The diversity and the beauty of the landscapes, the mixture of different traditions and the thriving art are nurturing the strong pride and sense of belonging of the people living in this region. From the Louisiana and Georgia plantations to the steamboats on the Mississippi, from the battles for civil rights in Alabama to the Nascar races, the southernmost states in the USA all bear an irresistible charm. And those interested in excellent cuisine will definitely be impressed with the Southern food, from Cajun cuisine to barbecue and fresh fish.
