Mississippi Arts & Culture


Where to eat and drink are among the most important decisions you’ll make on vacation. In Mississippi, renowned chefs serve up an eclectic array of Southern cuisine featuring homegrown, farm-to-table fare. The state also continues to see growth in craft beer and spirits distilleries.

History & Heritage in Louisiana

One facet of Louisiana that makes it such an appealing visitor destination is its deep and colorful history.

European explorers found their way to the Louisiana region and inhabited the area very early relative to the settlement of much of the rest of the continent.As a result, some communities in Louisiana are among the oldest in the United States. Before those explorers arrived, the Choctaw and Chitimacha tribes populated the region. Reaching still farther back in time, ancient peoples left their mark on the area thousands of years ago. 

The state of Louisiana offers many ways to explore the region’s rich history, in hundreds of museums, historic structures, landmarks, artifacts and works of art. The careful preservation and restoration of these sites and artifacts has created many rare opportunities for visitors to experience Louisiana’s history and gain insights into the diverse cultures that continue to influence the state today.

South Carolina State Parks

Any time is a great time to visit South Carolina's diverse state parks, but we've found that fall provides a perfect period to choose one or more state parks for finding colorful fall foliage. The beauty of leaf peeping in South Carolina's state parks is that there are so many from which to choose.

There are currently 47 unique parks in the South Carolina State Parks system-and more than a dozen of them provide breathtaking leaf peeping possibilities. It's just a matter of choosing one or many parks and then hitting the road for several nights (thanks to many in-park accommodations options in cabins, villas, and campgrounds). Plus, fall colors along the way mean a leaf peeping adventure starts before you even get to the park's entrance.

Located less than 15 miles straight down SC 11, Keowee-Toxaway State Park is the gateway to the pretty Jocassee Gorges and features lots of colorful hiking trails and fall colors reflecting off Lake Keowee. There's also one large three-bedroom rental cabin that overlooks the lake and has a private dock, all of which makes it a very popular overnight option any time of year.

The Best Hidden Gems in Raleigh, N.C.

The Raleigh area is home to some of the best-kept secrets when it comes to entertainment, food, shopping and more. For some truly-awesome experiences, be sure to add these hidden gems to your travel list.

Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD Nature Preserve 
Perched along the southern shores of Falls Lake State Recreation Area, this 157-acre outdoor retreat is a perfect starting spot for a jaunt along the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST, known as "N.C.'s hiking trail," stretches more than 1,000 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks). The preserve also offers some of the best shorter hiking trails in Raleigh which meander between meadows, through an oak-hickory forest, around a one-acre farm pond and past hidden rock crops, making for easy exploring for the entire family.

Robertson Millpond Preserve 
Perhaps you prefer a hidden gem you can paddle through. For that, take a short drive from Raleigh out to the town of Wendell to find Robertson Millpond Preserve, the area’s only bald cypress habitat.
