As fall is upon us and the weather cools down, there’s no better time to start planning trips around the South. In case you haven’t heard, we just released our first book with Globe Pequot Press. But contributor Andrew Kyle Saucier also wrote a book this year under the same publisher, which focuses on the Great Smoky Mountains. We’re excited to give away both of these books to help our readers plan adventures around the region we love. Even if you don’t win a copy of the book, you can buy them using the links below.
About “This Is My South”
This Is My South: The Essential Travel Guide to the Southern States is exactly as it sounds, a guidebook based on this website that covers ten states we feature here. It goes in depth with both beloved destinations and those “off the beaten path.”
You may think you know the South for its food, its people, its past, and its stories, but if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that the region tells far more than one tale. It is ever-evolving, open to interpretation, steeped in history and tradition, yet defined differently based on who you ask.
This Is My South inspires the reader to explore the Southern States––Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia––like never before. No other guide pulls together these states into one book in quite this way with a fresh perspective on can’t-miss landmarks, off the beaten path gems, tours for every interest, unique places to sleep, and classic restaurants. So come see for yourself and create your own experiences along the way!
