The South has always been at least somewhat friendly to gambling due to the rise of the riverboat in the early 1900s.
From a lazy cruise down the Mississippi River with stops at historical plantations to national civil rights sites, the South has plenty of ways to discover and remember the past.
Whatever your preferred type of getaway—from train travel to riverboating— the Deep South has something to unique to offer.
Made up of 16 states, depending on who you ask, the South is one of the most beautiful regions of the country.
'Forty Years a Gambler on the Mississippi' is possibly the best gambling book published in America.
If you're looking for a life-changing vacation, the Deep South is where you want to be.
