Day 1: London – New Orleans
Start this memorable twin centre holiday by flying into New Orleans, and let the good times roll. It's the Big Easy's unofficial motto, and it's one it has no trouble living up to - because you simply can't come here and fail to have a good time. Stay 3 nights at the Holiday Inn French Quarter Chateau Lemoyne (or similar).
Day 2-3: New Orleans
With jazz music wafting from every direction, the streets lined with bars and clubs, and a festival seemingly happening every other week, holidays to New Orleans are like one long party. Perched on the Mississippi River, New Orleans is like nowhere else - an intoxicating mix of colliding cultures. Wander through the atmospheric French District, and its old buildings peppered with wrought iron balconies tell the story of its French roots. A trip to the Historic Voodoo Museum gives a hint of Caribbean influence. And the superb Cajun food and music that you'll find everywhere is the city's direct link with the Deep South.
Day 4: New Orleans – Panama City Beach
After your southern discovery it’s time for a spot of beachside relaxation as you fly to Florida’s Panhandle to Panama City Beach. With a 27-mile long stretch of sugar-white sand lapped by the warm emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Panama City Beach is the sweetest place to be for beach lovers. Stay 4 nights at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Bay Point Resort(or similar).
Day 5-7: Panama City Beach
This is pure paradise for anyone who loves to feel soft sand between their toes; but it's a beach you'll never be bored on, since holidays to Panama City Beach come with the added bonus of tons of things to do for every age. The beach is definitely where it's at here, and there's one to suit every mood and inclination. You can strut your stuff at Schooner Beach, which is the hot-spot for volleyball and the place to see and be seen; pitch your beach camp at one the countless family friendly spots; or slope off to the quieter enclaves of Shell Beach and St Andrew's State Park, where the only footprints may be your own.
