Learn the best places to eat, sleep, shop, and explore the rich history in the American South. Written by a prominent southern motojournalist, this book provides an informed sampling of what the region is today and what has defined its past. Routes covering the five-state area of Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida are often clustered around "base camps" where you can leave your luggage and explore a nearby area unencumbered for several days.
Some of the more unique trips include: a three-day ride on the old Natchez Trace Parkway while searching for the Roxie Hole gold; a chance to sample a fried green tomato "sammich" in an authentic Southern juke joint; a trip to a Florida town used by pirates hiding out from the King's Navy; a visit to Elvis' birthplace with lunch at the actual unrestored Drive-In he frequented after school and the hardware store where his mamma bought him his first guitar; and a night in a sharecropper's cabin on what was once a working southern plantation. Plenty of full-color, detailed maps, photographs, and easy-to-follow directions are provided to make sure you find your way with no lost vacation time and no frustration.
