We are always on the look out for fun experiences, and there's no place I'd rather venture out than right here in the south. We are a culture unto our own, and let's be honest, Yankees just don't understand us. We love where we live, and we wouldn't change a thing.

Southern Living came up with a list of places that southerners need to check out before they die, and I wanted to immediately share. These are awesome! Some I have been to, and some I haven't, but since the Kentucky Derby is coming up next week, now is a good time to start planning your outings in the south. Have fun, y'all!
