Our Opinion
Americas Deep South is a vibrant fusion of iconic music, authentic food and inspiring culture. Wander through New Orleans French Quarter with its historic buildings and street jazz, take a steamboat cruise on the Mississippi River, hop onto an open top bus tour and hop off to explore its narrow streets on foot not to miss each inspiring turn.
 
Known as The Music City, Nashville encompasses all genres of musical experiences and with endless museums including the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, unique tours and shows plus free riverbank concerts and great dining. A famed attraction is Jack Daniels Distillery which is well worth a visit. With shopping malls galore and quirky independent stores, it is a shoppers paradise.
 
The home to the blues and rock n roll, Memphis is best known for Elvis and no visit would be complete without a trip to Graceland. The city has a host of bars, clubs and restaurants all alive with the sights and sounds of the iconic Deep South.
  

 
Day 1 - Atlanta
After picking up your motorhome, it’s an easy 2 1/2 hour Interstate drive into Alabama for your first night in the State Capital, Montgomery. 155 miles to Montgomery. Visit Jefferson Davis Confederate White House and Old Alabama Town
 
Day 2 - New Orleans
Heading for New Orleans but you need a break. Mobile, Alabama, seems like a good place and the Shady Acres Campground will offer a warm welcome. 185 miles to Mobile. Visit the Battleships at Memorial Park and the once English Conde-Charlotte House.    

 
Day 3 - New Orleans
Heading for the historic, gracious and unique city of New Orleans: the birthplace of jazz. You  can walk from The French Quarter RV Park into the heart of New Orleans. Though the RV Park looks a little like a car park, it has full hookups and the Clubhouse is very ‘New Orleans’ with great facilities. The wonderful restaurants, the world famous music and nightlife for everyone might make you extend your stay here. 160 miles to the French Quarter, New Orleans. Visit Jackson Square, Basin Street and Audubon Park. Cruise the Mississippi aboard a paddle steamer or take a day tour to the swamps and beautiful Plantations in the area
 
Day 4 - Jackson
North now into Elvis country. It is a long ride to Elvis Town so why not break your the journey just south of Jackson, Mississippi, another State Capital and staying at The Swinging Bridge RV Park. 180 miles to Jackson. Visit The Old Capitol, Governors Mansion and the Capitol Building.
 

 
Day 5 - Tupelo
Leave the freeway traffic and take the very scenic Natchez Trace bound for Tupelo, Elvis Presleys birthplace and home town until the age of thirteen. After a stop to visit, your campsite is at Barnes Crossing, just minutes north of the tow.
 
Day 6 - Memphis
A couple of hours driving through the Holly Springs National Forest to Memphis.  Where better to stay than within walking distance of Graceland, Elvis Presleys home. The Memphis-Graceland RV Park and Campground is located on 19 acres just off Elvis Presley Boulevard behind Elvis Presleys Heartbreak Hotel. 110 miles to Memphis. Visit Graceland of course but also the Civil Rights Museum in what was the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King was shot; Sun Studios and Beale Street  immortalised by W.C.
