Summer in the South is an explosion of sun, sound, sight and activities to touch all the senses. Experience sun-filled days along powder white beaches and dance the night away to the distinctly American sounds of blues, country and cajun music. History and recreation live side by side on the shores and along the tributaries of the mighty Mississippi River, spiced up by food and festivals throughout the region.
