Georgia and the Carolinas

Call 01242 547 717 to speak to a specialist Enquire


The southern states of Georgia and the Carolinas pack a punch that belies their sleepy nature. This is the slower pace of the USA, where antebellum mansions nestle among blooming pastures, banjo-filled music sweetens the air along with the scent of mint juleps and mountains slip down into the sandy banks of the Atlantic barrier islands. Here is where the old South meets the new, in a romantic clash of beautiful landscapes and some of the friendliest people you will come to meet.

Life's peachy when you've got Georgia on your mind. The proud home of CNN, Coca-Cola and the 1996 Summer Olympics, the state is bustling;unsurprising as it's home to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world's busiest travel hub. Georgia inspired writer Margaret Mitchell to create Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind and is the birthplace of music icons like Otis Redding and Ray Charles. You'll be relaxing in style, be it in bustling Atlanta, in the timeless Southern elegance of Savannah or somewhere along Georgia's enormous coastline, an unspoilt Atlantic paradise with islands, waterfalls, marshes, cliffs and secluded beaches.

The Carolinas, both North and South, are home to some of the best beaches in the States. Between the Appalachian Mountains of the west and the coast of the East you'll discover a plethora of cultures and communities with accents and traditions difficult to place, clinging on to the past. Colonial plantations and marshy fallows are abundant, interspersed with excellent golf courses and fantastic driving routes, while the friendly cities are full of charisma.
