Southern Grandeur

Get a taste of Southern living

Relax in the heat, history, and hospitality of the Southern Mississippi on this week-long riverboating experience. Before embarking on the stately American Queen, spend your first night dancing around Memphis, home of the Blues and birthplace of Rock and Roll. In Arkansas, explore the legendary Battle of Helena, or just sit back and take in an installment of King Biscuit Time—the nation’s longest-running blues radio program.

Vicksburg, the “Red Carpet City of the South,” offers a unique combination of old and new while a rich, multicultural heritage defines Mississippi’s former capital city of Natchez—one of the oldest European settlements in the area. Wander among the 140-plus historically registered buildings in St. Francisville and the 300-year-old oak trees in the Oak Alley plantation before disembarking the American Queen in the wild and wonderful city of New Orleans.
