Day 2: Atlanta to Nashville

This morning, after breakfast, begin your day with a brief city tour of Atlanta and then head off
to Nashville. Stop along the way at the historic Lookout Mountain with its fabulous views across
terrain fought over during the America Civil War then later on visit the Jack Daniels Distillery in
Lynchburg where the eponymous whiskey has been made since 1884. Interestingly Lynchburg,
with its red brick courthouse and quaint general store has just one traffic light and is a dry
county! Enjoy an exclusive Voupara  Southern BBQ experience before continuing through Tennessee to Music

Day 3: Nashville to Memphis

After breakfast, we stop at the Johnny Cash Museum to see historical documents, awards,
costumes, instruments, and other memorabilia devoted to the Man in Black. On arrival in
Memphis you will take a trip to Graceland. Graceland is as much an object of pilgrimage as a
museum dedicated to the late, great Elvis Presley. From the flowers and painted signs outside
the gates, to the tear-streaked cheeks of fans inside, see the effect that Elvis and his music had
on popular American culture. Marvel at Graceland's Jungle Room, walls full of gold and platinum
records. Stroll the grounds and you just might find yourself humming Blue Suede Shoes.  Tonight enjoy some 

authentic Southern cuisine and live music on Beale Street, the birthplace of Blues!

After driving across Lake Pontchartrain on the longest causeway in the world you will arrive in New Orleans, a mélange of European style and Caribbean flavors.  It's a city full of flamboyance, festivities and a whole lot of soul. We've
