Take a literary tour via steamboat!
File this under my “dream vacations.”
The Great American Steamboat Company offers a “Southern Culture” tour that promises the following:
Immerse yourself in the literature, music and culture of the South, as well as its traditions, history and cooking. Our Southern Culture Vacations carry you deep into the worlds of William Faulkner, Flannery O’Connor, Tennessee Williams and Harper Lee. You’ll visit the towns that inspired literary and musical greatness. Along the way, you’ll experience the sounds of the Delta blues and sample plenty of Southern cooking.
Right? I know. I’m swooning. Go check out the site, look at the photos, and dream of sailing down the river on the boat pictured above.
I’m in love.
