As well as delicious Cajun cuisine and jazz, the South is also home to an incredible array of bayous for you to explore. These expansive wetlands look phantasmagorical in appearance and border the Gulf of Mexico. Interspersed among them are the old sugar plantations and cotton fields.
Take a boat trip!
Cruising through the swamps is to step into a decaying murky water world, at times you past abandoned cabins and houses that look decidedly creepy.
Snaking up out of the bayou are beautiful trees that cast their branches downwards towards the life-giving water.
Home to a whole menagerie of birds and other animals, watch out for alligators lazily swimming past or sunning themselves on the banks.
