Featured Destinations

New Orleans

New Orleans is a happy, high-spirited city with the pulsing beat of Dixieland jazz. It delights visitors with its riverboats, Creole cuisine, quaint antique shops and narrow streets of the French Quarter. While here, be sure to take a ride on one of the picturesque trolley cars. Eccentric, elegant New Orleans is strongly connected to both the Mississippi River and the South, but its identity remains aloof from any regional or even national affiliation. It reminds some visitors of European cities, in part because French and Spanish colonial architecture adds an Old World backdrop to some streets. But the feeling of foreignness goes deeper: The celebrated New Orleans atmosphere, cuisine, music, traditions and lifestyle are rooted in an embrace of the decadent and assimilation of the unconventional. New Orleans welcomes all, but is familiar to none, and the result is a city which attracts the romantic, the spiritual, the wild and the inquisitive—all while successfully promoting itself as corporate America’s playground. No matter what is expected from a visit to New Orleans, no one goes home disappointed.

Biloxi

Most of Biloxi's tourist attractions are concentrated on or near water and national recognition of the city's name benefits the entire coast tourism industry. Long stretches of soft white sand and the sound of waves lapping against the shore beckon those seeking serenity and those searching for excitement. Stretch out on the beach and "soak up some rays" or enjoy the heart-racing excitement of a jet ski. Rent sailboats and paddleboats, wade fish, deep sea fish, or play volleyball. Enjoy coastal golf from one of over 20 public courses. For relaxation, take the self-guided walking tour of historic downtown where there are museums, art galleries, unique shops, historical sites, stately homes and charming architecture. For the history buff, visit Beauvior, the last home of Jefferson Davis. See 1880's life, marvel at civil war antiques and memorabilia, and enjoy a quiet moment in the gardens or the cemetery of Civil War veterans. At night Biloxi's "strip" comes alive with action with casino games of chance, live entertainment for dance the night away, and spectacular Las Vegas-style shows.

Florence, AL

Deeply enriched with history, blues, culture, and natural beauty, Florence is filled with character alongside the Tennesse River. Here, where you can walk along part of the Trail of Tears, is where you will find the Rosenbaum House--the Alabama structure designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Experience the "Muscle Shoals Sound" resonating in the air of the birthplace of W.C. Handy, known as the "Father of the Blues." A festive town, you can join in on the celebration during one of the many festivals held in Florence, including the Alabama Renassaince Faire, the Trail of Tears Celebration, Frontier Days Celebration, and the Arts Alive Celebration. Guests can scour the wilderness by fishing in the many rivers and lakes of the area, taking in the scenery of the many parks and trails, or golfing at one of the public or private on a warm afternoon.
