Explore These Exclusive Places in the Deep South
All of the 50 states have something unique on view, but there’s no argument that the Deep South is well known for its cuisine, accents, landscapes and diversity of attractions.
Domestic and international visits to the U.S. are made easier by several airline flight services, like American Airlines, Air Canada, Air Greenland or United Airlines cheap flights. A cheap flight can become even cheaper when you add a car rental or hotel stay.
The services aspect of travel is made easier by FareMart vendors. Their simple and easy to use interface makes for a hinder-free booking experience. The professionals sitting on the other side are ready 24/7 to answer every question regarding their services.
So, let’s start exploring some exclusive places in the Deep South.
Anna Maria Island, Florida
This Florida island has perhaps been kept hidden from the eyes of the world due to its secluded location on the western edge of the peninsula and seven-mile strip of beaches. Strict regulations have limited development on the island, but there is plenty of fresh seafood. Ride the tides with your paddleboard in December, while the blues play at the nearby Bradenton Blues Festival.
Noccalula Falls in Alabama
Cascading more than 90 feet into Black Creek Ravine, Noccalula Falls combines a local legend with a little-known tourist attraction. The Native American legend of Princess Noccalula presides over the park in the form of her statue and goes that, as a young girl, the princess leaped from the falls to escape the marriage her father had arranged. Heartbroken, her father named the cascade Noccalula after her.
The falls now make up part of a pioneer village complete with caves, an abandoned dam, pioneer homestead and Civil War carvings. Noccalula Falls is visible from the free part of the park just off I-59 for those who just want a peek.
Dallas, Texas, By CityPass
Skip the summer tourist lines with the Dallas CityPass, which includes prepaid entry to four main attractions. These include the Perot Museum of Nature and Science (with a 3D movie), the Reunion Tower GeO-Deck for a 360-degree view of the city, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, which focuses on John F. Kennedy, and either the Dallas Zoo or George W. Presidential Library & Museum.
Get a savings of almost $50 with the pass and have nine days to use it. You’ll also receive expedited entry at many attractions so you can spend more time enjoying them and less time waiting in line. Another family-friendly activity in Dallas is dinner at Medieval Times, where knights and horses of the Middle Ages put on a show of valor along with a royal feast.
The Florida Keys
Spreading 137 miles beginning from the Southern tip of the state between the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean is a thick thread of islands called the Florida Keys. Beginning just 15 miles from Miami, this coral archipelago finishes in Dry Tortugas National Park, a veritable no man’s land. The last deserted place or island in the chain is Key West, a popular destination dubbed “Key Weird” by the region.
Get in the water for activities like fishing, snorkeling or diving, rent a boat or kayak and explore the mystery of mangroves, taste some regional cuisine, grab a seat at a rustic beach bar or watch the sunset from Mallory Square to absorb the soul of the Keys.
Head South to explore these attractions—some of them far-flung—and experience the diversity the region has to offer.
