Texas – the heart of the prairie

Texas is perhaps the most commonly known southern state, well backed by the mysterious stories of cowboys and Native Americans. The state is the second biggest in the U.S. both measured in area size and population.

A large part of Texas consists of prairie, but dessert, grass fields, woods and long coastlines also embellish the beautiful landscape. Texas is also home to some of the biggest cities in the U.S. Houston is the fourth biggest in the country and is home to the U.S.’s space travel mission control center, which is absolutely worth a visit.

Dallas – the symbol of Texas

Texas’s second largest city, Dallas, is immortalized by the legendary TV series of the same name. But the city has much more to offer than soap operas about oil-hungry families! Dallas is a traditional, American city, where you can find both skyscrapers in the busy financial district and small, charming neighborhoods like West Village in Uptown. The city’s football team, the Dallas Cowboys, are probably the U.S.’s most famous team, and if you have the chance, you should see their new stadium with the world’s biggest television screen and seats for 110,000 – and indoor nonetheless! Also try the city’s barbecue kitchen, where you will be presented with a variety of delicious, grilled dishes. And you can be sure that there is plenty of food!

New Orleans – The Big Easy

Orkanen Katrina der gav voldsomme ødelæggelser og som var skyld i næsten 2000 dødsfald i 2005 ramte især storbyen New Orleans

The hurricane Katrina was an extremely destructive storm that killed almost 2000 people in New Orleans in 2005. But today, the city is completely rebuilt and even more beautiful than before. No natural disaster can ruin the soul of the city and its exceptional atmosphere! You must not miss New Orleans, which is like no other American city. You will not find anywhere else in the world with the same energy and atmosphere of jazz and blues as you do in the French Quarter, where Bourbon Street, music venues, festivals and carnivals, and good Cajun food are the characteristics of Louisiana’s largest city. The day is one long party, and the tourists are always invited!

Mississippi – the river state

If you have read books by the world famous author Mark Twain, you already know Mississippi. The state is named after the river of the same name, which is the world’s fourth biggest water system, forming the state line to Louisiana. The river embraces the state, and various boats constantly sail on it, including the characteristic steamboats. Mark Twain was a captain on such a boat, and one of his famous works is about his experiences on the river. As a tourist in Mississippi today, you can still go and sail on the river in a variety of different ways. In addition, the state is known as the cradle of gospel, jazz and blues, and has, besides Twain, fostered great literary writers such as William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams. Everywhere in the streets of Mississippi, you can experience music venues with blues music, where it is possible to be served a meal at inexpensive prices, because Mississippi is one of the cheapest places in the U.S.

Alabama – the cultural state of the South

Everyone knows Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song “Sweet Home Alabama” in which the state is praised in the lyrics – which is understandable! The largest city is Birmingham and it is known as the cultural- and entertainment metropolis of Alabama. There are a number of theaters, cinemas, music venues, opera houses and the like spread across Birmingham. You will never run dry of cultural activities, since there is always yet another theater, where you can watch a premiere. For the same reason, Birmingham is also the place, where several movie-, music- and theater festivals are held each year. Birmingham in Alabama is an amazingly interesting city for creative and culture loving souls.

Georgia – The freedom loving state

East of Alabama lies Georgia. The state has a long history as being one of the most independence-loving states that fought tenaciously against the English king’s colonization of America during the War of Independence. Georgia was also a leading state in the Civil War against the Northern States, where great battles were fought. Georgia was the last of the southern states to be reinstated in the new, united America after the war. The largest city is Atlanta with over 5.5 million inhabitants and is the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement leader Martin Luther King. It is also the hometown of the television station CNN and Coca Cola. You can experience the soft drink’s history on a tour and a museum visit. Furthermore, Atlanta has a selection of tourist attractions, and is home to the biggest skyscrapers in the country outside of New York and Chicago. Georgia should be explored during a holiday to the southern part of the U.S.!

Tennessee – the musical paradises in Memphis and Nashville

Tennessee lies north of Georgia and Alabama. The state is originally a Native American territory from which the name originates. In Tennessee, you will find two of the most interesting cities in the U.S.: Memphis and Nashville. Memphis is known as the place where the rock legend Elvis Presley lived for the greater part of his life, and where he died. Today, “The King of Rock”s old residence, Graceland, has been converted into a museum of his life. Additionally, you can find countless good music venues and bars in Memphis, where Rock’n’Roll is played – a music genre that was created here. The other great city, Nashville, is the capital of Tennessee, and is slightly smaller than Memphis. In the music world, the city is just as famous and carries the nickname “Music City”. If you like country music, you must not miss Nashville, where some of the genre’s legends originate from. You can even find opera, ballet, theater and other creative shows in abundance in the city.
