Next stop on our winter tour is Vidalia, Louisiana located on the Mississippi River. We love the fact that Vidalia is “near” the fictitious town of Bon Temps, Louisiana—the setting for our favorite HBO series, True Blood. The television series is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, detailing the co-existence of vampires and humans. The series centers on the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse (played by actress Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress.
I read the book series first a number of years ago and loved them. They are imaginative and fun to read. The television series does not follow the books exactly (a bit more sex and gore), but the main storyline is still there. It is all a bit out there: and sadly, we are addicted. Looking forward to the next set of episodes next year.
Actually, we are visiting the area to tour the Antebellum homes located in Natchez, Mississippi (just across the river from Vidalia). The homes escaped the Civil War destruction and have been restored to their former glory.
No doubt, a suitable location for vampires.
