Featuring Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama, united by a haunting history but probably most famous now for their lively music, delicious cooking and charming southern hospitality.  Beginning in Atlanta, we travel through Georgia to Charleston South Carolina where we will explore its historic districts and enjoy the downtown music scene on King Street. The beautiful city of Savannah is next with its Antebellum history, then our journey weaves along the picturesque Atlantic coastline to Hilton Head Island and St Augustine, America's oldest city.  The tour continues to Tallahassee and follows the gulf coast to Orange Beach, where you will spend a few relaxing days and enjoy music at Florabama and the Pink Pony Pub. Finally, our trip takes us to Mobile, home of the first Mardi Gras and then Tuscaloosa Alabama for a taste of Native American History before returning to Atlanta where your Authentic American Adventure comes full circle.
