(From Memphis to New Orleans)

Memphis, TN ~ Greenville, MS ~ Vicksburg, MS ~ Natchez, MS ~ St. Francisville, LA ~ Baton Rouge, LA ~ Nottoway, LA ~ New Orleans, LA

Explore the land of bawdy blues and Southern belles. This journey showcases the diversity and drama of the Lower Mississippi River. From Memphis to New Orleans, the river rolls slowly and expansively, smooth as a southern drawl. The bayous and woodlands along the shore create dramatic landscapes that are virtually unchanged since the days of the French fur traders. Gracious towns with palatial mansions and tree-lined streets abound. History is everywhere - in silent Civil War cemeteries and virtually everywhere you turn in Memphis, best known for jazz, barbecue, and of course The King of Rock and Roll and his home at Graceland.
