It's time to be awestruck as you drive towards Virginia. The drive is beautiful and you’ll soon understand why this place is a popular thoroughfare for travellers and locals alike. Depending on the pace of the day there may be time for a walk en route or once you reach the campsite.

  • Virginia

Day: 4

It's time for some excitement as you enter the vibrant and eclectic Deep South. Tennessee is the home of country music so make sure your vocals are at the ready because you'll be singing along in no time. Want more action? For pure adrenaline don a lifejacket, grip a paddle and bounce along a churning stretch of white water down the Ocoee River, which was the actual course used during the Centennial Olympic Games in 1996. 

  • Ocoee

Day: 5-6

From honky-tonk bars to The Grand Ole Opry, they don't call Nashville the 'centre of the music world' for nothing! Find out all about the history of music at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, home to the largest collection of country music in the world. This place is full of life and you'll be hotfooting your way from one bar to the next checking out the live music. 

  • Nashville

Day: 7

Located on the Mississippi River, Memphis has a long and colourful past. Why not visit Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley? Elvis had a huge influence on country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll music, and his former home is the second-most visited private home in the USA after the White House. Visit Sun Studio, where famous blues and rock 'n' roll tracks have been laid down since 1950, a place many a great name has passed through. There's more to Memphis than just music, and you can pay a visit to the National Civil Rights Museum located in the former Lorraine Hotel to see the place where Martin Luther King was assassinated.

You've arrived in the legendary 'Big Easy'. Enjoy an included boat ride through the Louisiana swamps in search of gators! Back in the city, why not take a slow steamboat ride along the Mississippi River, Huckleberry Finn style? New Orleans simmers with Deep South charm and the food here is some of the tastiest around so grab a po-boy, a bowl of gumbo or some home cooked jambalaya and pull up a chair in the French Quarter to watch the world go by. If the food of the Deep South gets your mouth watering why not join a cookery class at the New Orleans School of Cookery? By night, explore the bars in Frenchman Street for live music and dancing without the crowds, or head to the iconic Preservation Hall for world-class live jazz almost every evening.

In the evening, the party spirit simmers into the small hours at the beachfront clubs!

  • Destin Beach

Day: 12-13

Embrace your inner kid with an optional visit to Disney World.

Orlando is one big playground and after a full day satisfying your thirst for fun, you'll sleep like a baby.

Touring with TrekAmerica

TrekAmerica was founded 45 years ago, on a simple concept; get together a group of free-wheeling, independent types, pack up a van with tents, camping gear and a trek leader and follow the road, hitting all the key places along the way. Today, not much has changed, and as the longest running North American, small group tour company, they are proud to say no-one knows the area like them. With ‘Tours for Non-Tourists’, they love bringing together small groups of young, international travellers to experience the best of USA, Canada, Alaska and South America; showing them America's big highlights from bustling cities to jaw-dropping National Parks, and incredible places so hidden only locals like them know about them.

TrekAmerica tours are designed specifically for young, international travellers aged 18-38, so you're guaranteed to be travelling with people of a similar age, all with a sense of fun, adventure and a keen desire to explore. Whether you're travelling alone or with friends, you'll soon be surrounded by like-minded people who will quickly become your new best trek mates. The tour leaders are home-grown, knowledgeable and fun loving folks with a passion for showing you the real Americas. Only the most enthusiastic and committed people are chosen to become tour leaders; they are trained extensively as TrekAmerica believe that the most important ingredient for the success of a tour is a great leader.

With year round departures and over 50 unique itineraries from 3 days to 3 months in length, TrekAmerica offer a wide range of tours and departures and whatever you choose they guarantee you the experience of a lifetime! Each trip offers fantastic value for money; they include all accommodation and transport, your own experienced tour leader, all national park fees and selected meals on some tours. Plus there are no single supplements for those travelling alone. They also include exciting activities along the way so you get serious ‘bang for your buck’. You have a choice of accommodation on each tour; you can opt for full on communing with nature with the camping option, or go the hostel route of group accommodation with the Budget Lodging option, or if you need your creature comforts, the Plus option is for you.

Whichever tour you choose, fun, freedom and flexibility are key to TrekAmerica’s style of travel and with interests as individual as their travellers, you're able to hang out with the group when you want or do your own thing. In addition to the many included highlights and activities, there are also lots of optional activities for you to choose from during your trip. They keep these optional so you have the flexibility to do the things you want to and leave out the things you don't, according to taste and budget.
