Plan Your Next Road Trip: The Deep South

Summer is fast approaching and that means more people will be hitting the road on new adventures. Whether you’ve never been to the South or you already live in here and are planning a weekend vacation, here are some must-visit areas on your road trip.

Road Trip Musts: The South

Planning a road trip doesn’t have to be stressful! All you need to know is where you’re going, a map (in case Siri doesn’t have your back), and a little bit of time. Explore the beautiful Southeast region of our great nation and all the hidden gems it has to offer.


Laissez les bons temps rouler! We’ve passed Mardi Gras but that shouldn’t stop you from adding Lousiana to your road trip itinerary. Lake Charles is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the water while New Orleans always has fun for the whole family! We recommend finding somewhere to stay the night – you may want to give yourself time to rest after you treat yourself to all the crawfish you can eat.


We can’t talk about a road trip in the South without hitting on our personal fave – Alabama! Whether you’re into summer road trips for the history or the beaches, Alabama has both. There are a lot of great places to play in the water, from the Gulf Shore to Orange Beach. Huntsville is great for anyone who’s into space exploration while Birmingham has great pull as a historic mining town and a key player in the Civil Rights movement.

South Carolina

You can’t pass through South Carolina without stopping in Charleston and visiting one of the great beaches in this coastal town. Charleston is rich in history, from Fort Sumter to old plantation sites, but Greenville, in upstate South Carolina, boasts a suspension bridge that will leave you breathless as you head north.


Virginia might not seem like part of the South, but it’s still considered part of the southeast United States. Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, is in Virginia, and Alexandria is a must-see with its cobblestone streets and quaint shops. Any history buff absolutely must include this beautiful state on their driving tour of the South!
