The best source for everything Deep South USA


Deep South USA Blog

Birmingham, Alabama and Natchez, Mississippi have both been featured in Lonely Planets Top 10 US Spots for 2016.

Birmingham, Alabama

The lively Avondale neighbourhood in Birmingham now offers a variety of pubs, breweries and good eats. While in Birmingham make sure you visit the Civil Rights District, the home of the Civil Rights Institute and the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. You can even try a spirit-filled Sunday morning church service at the 16th Street Baptist Church complete with gospel choir which everyone gets out their seats for. Birmingham is also home to the award-winning Hot and Hot Fish Club. If you're feeling more adventurous zip-line adventures are available in Red Mountain Park, which also has an amazing obstacle course in the tops of the park's mountain top trees with great views of Birmingham.

Natchez, Mississippi

Natchez is the oldest permanent settlement on the Mississippi River and the largest collection of antebellum homes in the nation. Natchez will recognise a landmark milestone in 2016: 300 years of history. The Tricentennial celebrations will commemorate the past, celebrate the present and create a brighter future for this charming river city. Throughout 2016 there will be a wide range of daily activities, annual events and festivals, historical re-enactments, sporting events, displays of local art and music performance, celebrations of sunsets on the bluff and much, much more.
