Why: When a city’s motto is “Laissez-les bon temps rouler” (“Let the good times roll”), you know you’re in for a fabulous trip! Bourbon Street gets most of the attention, but we’re partial to the charm and history of the French Quarter. Don’t leave without sampling some hearty Cajun cuisine or listening to live jazz!

 

Tybee Island, Georgia

Why: Dreaming of a beach getaway that won’t break the bank? Tybee Island, just a short drive from Savannah, may be just the spot – it’s not as popular as beaches like the Outer Banks and Hilton Head, which means your group can get first dibs on cute beach houses and prime spots on the sand.

 

Charleston, South Carolina

Why: The better question is why not? If you’re looking for Southern charm, Charleston has it all: boutique hotels with wraparound porches, top-rated restaurants and bars, adorable shops, and plenty of fun activities (from beaches to historic home tours) within biking distance.

 

Nashville, Tennessee

Why: From live music to stick-to-your-ribs Southern cuisine, Nashville has it all! The country music capital of the world is also home to a few of our team’s favorite attractions: Jeni’s Ice Cream, Draper James, White’s Mercantile, and Biscuit Love, to name a few.

 

Charlottesville, Virginia

Why: Two words: wine tasting! There are 30 fabulous wineries on the Monticello Wine Trail, most of which boast sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Head to Charlottesville in the spring or fall for the best scenery and attractions (everything from polo matches to apple picking).
