Macon, Georgia

Macon thumbAs The Song and Soul of the South, Macon delights its visitors with music and history abound. Toted as the birthplace of Southern Rock, this Georgia town also claims music legends Otis Redding, Little Richard and the Allman Brothers as natives. However, it’s the second part of its moniker; “soul”, that sets Macon apart from other music meccas. The city has historic streets lined with antebellum mansions and various museums displaying its Civil War and African American heritage. Experience Macon’s natural history at the Museum of Arts & Sciences or explore a Native American home site dating back 15,000 years. Discover Macon, where you’ll be drawn in with a song and delighted with Southern charm and culture.


Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

MyrtleBeach ThumbLong before developers set out to make Myrtle Beach a golf retreat, enslaved Africans, brought from the Caribbean, were working the land and shaping American history. The Gullah-Geechee culture was born in and around Myrtle Beach and represents the customs, traditions, crafts and language of these people. Various heritage sites celebrate and preserve this unique culture. Travelers can visit Friendfield Village, a 19th century slave village at Hobcaw Barony, or experience Gullah-Geechee art and memorabilia at the Gulla O’ooman Shop and Museum. Discover the remarkable story of Gullah-Geechee and its influence on the Myrtle Beach community.


New Orleans, Louisiana

NewOrleansThe city of New Orleans “goes big” on most things; sports, music, tradition, architecture…and food is no exception. Over 1,300 restaurants are ready and willing to show you why their Gumbo, Jambalaya, Andouille, Po-boy, Shrimp Creole, Muffuletta, Bread Pudding, Beignets (you get the picture) is the best. Pull back the curtain on food in New Orleans with one of six tours from The Cultural Traveler. On A Tasty Sample of New Orleans you'll attend a cooking class at the famed New Orleans School of Cooking followed by dinner and a drink at the renowned Tujague's Restaurant. The Jazz Brunch and Shop Experience brings you to The Court of Two Sisters’ World Famous Jazz Brunch. After dining enjoy a world-class shopping trip at the Riverwalk Marketplace. The New Orleans Cooking Experience specializes in teaching authentic Creole and Cajun cuisine and history at the "House on Bayou Road." The Shop & Swamp Tour lives up to its name with worldclass shopping and a meandering tour of Louisiana’s back country bayous. Explore the city by boat and then by bar on the New Orleans Steamboat Cruise & Cocktail Tour. Finally, travel back in time down Louisiana's Great River Road on the Plantation Rendezvous Tour.


Pasadena, California

PasadenaEverything may be “coming up roses” on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, but this culturally rich city blooms each day of the year with magnificent dining, theatre, architecture and art. Visit Van Gogh at The Norton Simon Museum, go “hands-on” at The Kidspace Children’s Museum or simply stroll the streets and immerse yourself in the architecture. Many shopping and dining establishments are located within noteworthy establishments, which will turn an ordinary shopping or dining experience into an interactive history lesson.
