Tweet Name a musician or group from the last 50 years and they probably have ties to the South. Places like Memphis and Muscle Shoals were known for their recording studios, but it was a small city in the heartland of Georgia that is responsible for names like The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Otis Redding […]

Tweet While I consider myself a city girl, I love road tripping through small towns and backroads that the South is known for. Within 45 minutes of driving out of Atlanta in any direction, I can be in actual farmlands, cows and all. Last month I finally made it to a town I’d been wanting […]
Tweet Ask five people what they know about Augusta, Georgia and perhaps three couldn’t tell you anything, one would mention the Masters and another might confuse Augusta with the city of the same name in Maine. Prior to this year, my experience in Augusta had been limited to the rest stop, where I would go on […]
Tweet Most people’s knowledge of the Atlanta is based solely on the world’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (or LaToya Jackson Intergalactic Spaceport). Many travelers pass through on their way elsewhere, but not all get to see beyond it. While I’ve never had my own long layover in Atlanta since it’s my home airport, I […]
Tweet It was a rainy day in north Georgia. I’d gone to meet up with my grandparents and take them to the former home of a folk artist. We arrived at the prison and knew we’d gotten turned around. But when we doubled back, I immediately recognized it: a simple house in a simple neighborhood, […]
Tweet When I was in elementary school my grandparents moved from a short drive from our house in suburban Atlanta to the “country,” a farm in Adairsville. They bought a plot where a barn had once been and built a house. They’ve lived there ever since and I always looked forward to exploring the woods […]
TweetLiving in the suburbs can sometimes make me feel like I don’t live in Atlanta (and some would argue that I don’t). But as much as I loathe the term “staycation,” it’s nice to spend time away from home but within the city. I’ve done it a few times before when staying at hotels to […]
Tweet One of the best things about living in Atlanta is the many places you can get to from there. I am 30 minutes away from the world’s busiest airport and within 8 hours of driving, I can get just about anywhere in the South. One of my closest friends moved a few hours south […]
Tweet A friend texted me the other day to say, “Is Caroline in the City on vacation? I haven’t seen any posts lately.” Busted. Yes, I’ve let this blog fall by the wayside in recent months. I seem to have more content than I know what to do with on This Is My South, but […]
Tweet While humans are said to be made up of over 60% water, I feel like I’m more like 90%. I’ve always been a water baby, from my first visit to the beach at a few weeks old. My happiest places are by the water: Charleston, Sydney, Split. It was a particularly hectic week at […]
