Gulf States — Introduction
The Gulf States are among the most varied and thrilling in the US with pulsating cities that dance to a different beat to the rest of the country.
Alabama is the beating heart of the Deep South – a quiet land that stretches from the Gulf Coast to the northern mountains with much of the state covered in lush forests and fields of cotton.
Mississippi is as expansive and exciting as the river that gives it its name. What else would you expect of the home of musical giants like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and BB King?
If you like your holidays big and brash then the Lone Star State of Texas is the place for you. You will be at home in its dizzying cities of Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and Austin quicker than you can say ‘Howdy Pardner’.
You haven’t partied until you’ve danced on Bourbon Street in New Orleans – the home of jazz. This unique city is a sophisticated mix of elegant French architecture, Creole and Cajun cooking and the ethereal bayous that surround it.
