Deep South Holidays

An epicentre of music, culture, and historical significance, the Deep South of America is one of the most colourful holidays you’ll ever experience. Choose between the distinctive cities of New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and Atlanta, each of them sprinkled with that unmissable southern charm.

When it comes to activities in the South; you’ll be short on time, not things to do. Taste mouthwatering soul food that’s been cooked with love or check out the cultural spots like the famed house of Elvis Presley in Memphis. Or visit the ornate buildings of New Orleans’ French Quarter and its quaint boutiques. And if you’re a lover of Coca Cola, you’ll need to head to the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta. But if music is your thing, head to Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry to hear the best country tones around. 

At Barrhead Travel we offer a wide range of holidays to this lively slice of the United States. Whether you opt for the Mardi Gras of New Orleans, the music of Nashville and Memphis or the metropolitan lights of Atlanta, you’re guaranteed a memorable adventure.

Deep South Holiday Highlights

Louisiana in the Movies

Louisiana is loved by Barrhead Travel as well as by film directors! With its atmospheric big cities, coastal wetlands, swamps and marshes, multi-million dollar sound stages and post production houses, this destination has a lot to recommend it as a perfect film location.

In 2013, Louisiana was the top locale for major Hollywood movies, ousting California from its usual place at the top of the heap. But film-making in the state isn’t a new phenomenon at all – it’s been home to some of the best known films of the last 100 years.

Graceland - Home of Elvis

Step in and travel back in time to discover one of Elvis’ greatest prides! (Apart from his daughter and his music, of course.)

Born in a two-room house and having experienced the financial struggle of his parents for years, earning the big money and buying the finest house in town for his family was one of Presley’s great goals in life. Owning Graceland, an elegant and inviting mansion that the pop star shared with his parents, made this dream come true. For many people, Elvis’ mansion tells the story of the American Dream itself.

As soon as you set foot inside the charming manor, you start a journey to the most private aspects of Presley’s life. Discover the rooms in which Elvis and his daughter Lisa Marie once lived, laughed and spent time with their friends and family.

Texas Tourism
Texas is ‘more than you think’. A world-class, year-round destination with the rich ranching and cowboy heritage that Texas is renowned for. There are many other attractions for visitors to enjoy including spectacular coastline, extensive national and state parks, bird-watching, golf and outstanding arts and cultural facilities. In a state this big and diverse you will find whatever you want from your Texan adventure.
Think of Texas and think of the great outdoors and adventure. Go hiking and camping in the Big Bend National Park, kayaking on the Rio Grande River, horse-riding in the Hill Country or biking through the Palo Duro Canyon for an adventure of a lifetime.   If it’s a beach holiday you are after, you’ve come to the right place too.
All along the 600 miles of the Texas coastline, the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico meet the mild climate of the Texas coast, making Texas' beaches among the most calming and beautiful in the nation. Or, if you prefer some retail therapy, Texas is a good value choice, with plenty of opportunities for savvy shoppers with everything from quaint local stores, outlet stores, or world-class shopping in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas.
