Food and Drink
Dining in the south is not just one experience. The cuisine is varied even within the region and has a variety of influences and backgrounds, from the French and Caribbean influences in Louisiana to the British hand in coastal Georgia to the Spanish flare in Florida.
Iconic dishes also vary by area, but items to try include grits, biscuits, sausage, shrimp and grits, she crab soup, oysters, gumbo, shrimp etouffee, po boys, muffalettas, beignets, chicken and waffles, okra, collard greens, mashed potatoes, and fried chicken.
