Southern Living recently wrote an article about the top 10 places to travel in the South in 2018. It was no surprise that New Orleans was number 1. According to the article, “It’s New Orleans’ 300th anniversary and the whole city is rolling out the red carpet and inviting visitors to let the good times roll.
To mark the tricentennial, this year’s Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras are expected to be bigger and better than ever. There will be history lectures, a star-filled concert, block parties, historical art exhibits, and so much more all tied to the remarkable anniversary. The citywide contemporary arts triennial is also taking place this year, bringing local, national, and international artists to the city. In short, there’s no better time to come visit the Big Easy.”
Due to that fact that Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras have already passed, there are quite a few other southern gems that would make for a great summer road trip or weekend getaway.
