From the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley to the bayou of Louisiana, this is an area with many experiences and cultures to explore
Four Corners: Not the easiest place to get to, but if you are ticking off lists of states you visit, Four Corners allows you to complete Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah within a few steps. Indeed, many visitors get into all sorts of shapes to ensure they cover all four states at the same time.
Albuquerque: Even though it is no longer on the well-travelled Route 66, the city is worth visiting. The old town has Pueblo style architecture and a number of Native American museums and cultural places.
El Paso: Not only is El Paso one of the sunniest locations in the USA, it is also the Boot capital of the World. The city straddles the Rio Grande on the US/Mexico border and you can visit Rosa’s Cantina, basis of the famous song about a love-struck cowboy
New Orleans: It’s true to say there is nowhere quite like New Orleans, where it feels like it’s Mardi Gras every day of the week. It’s a place where “for sale” signs on houses let prospective buyers know if the place is haunted or not. It’s a place where you can enjoy jazz in all its forms.
