I love everything about the south, and I can't imagine any place I would rather be. I love the food, the people, the weather.....everything. And there is still so much of the south I would love to explore! Our friends at Southern Living Magazine have tipped me off to some places in the southern United States that I have to visit before I die, and I can't wait!!! Some of these might seem like they are actually on the fringes of being in the south, but still unique, and oh so fascinating. Check out the list below, and see some of the reasons why Southern Living thinks they are so special.
