Discover the South with destination experts from the southern U.S. states of Texas, Oklahoma & Louisiana
If you weren’t able to make yesterday’s webinar, the recording is now available on YouTube. And, if you’ve always wanted to see the south, now’s the time to learn more from the experts who live and breathe Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.
During the webinar, we learned about the vineyards of Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas, before traveling on to Oklahoma, home to the nation’s longest driveable stretch of Route 66 and a state with deep Native American significance. We ended in Louisiana, a maze of bayous and swamps arching southwest of the iconic destination of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz with a unique blend of cultures.

See the culturally rich and diverse cities of Texas – www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8556DE987M. It’s true: Everything is bigger in Texas. From portion sizes, pickup trucks, and 10-gallon hats to the thousands of kilometres of rugged, gorgeous terrain. This state encompasses such a wide swath of human experience that exploring all of its nooks and crannies would take months – maybe years.
Experience Western history, Native American culture and Southern charm. Oklahoma lies at a unique crossroads – not just because it’s practically in the middle of the USA, but also because of its fascinating mixture of Western history, Native American culture and genuine Southern charm. With powwows and rodeos, Western museums and country music, Southern comfort food and Route 66 relics, Oklahoma’s cultural medley is genuine Americana. Here’s a glimple of what Oklahoma has to offer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVC2iOlJnio.
