If you’ve found this website, you are interested in traveling to the Southern states. You’re already part of a small fraction of people who do so.
But this is my South, the region I’ve spent the majority of my life in. I want travelers from all over the world to see the beauty and culture and diversity that I see.
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, a city known for music, Coca-Cola, the 1996 Olympics, and the world’s busiest airport.
I didn’t think there was anything good to see here and dreamt of moving to New York City one day. But as I’ve grown up I’ve realized what a great city it truly is.
I spent four years living in Charleston, South Carolina while attending college and it is still one of my favorite places in the world. You can’t beat it for history, food, and culture.
I lived in a beat-up blue house built in the 1800s and spent my days sitting on the porch and crawling to the Saturday morning farmer’s markets in Marion Square.
The South is no longer immediately associated with Gone with the Wind or Deliverance. We’ve got James Beard award-winning restaurants, up and coming artists and fashion designers, top universities, world-renowned music acts, and more history than any other region in the country.
I hope you’ll find something that interests you here and as they say down south, “Y’all come back now, y’hear?”
