June Letter from the Editor: Small-Town Staycations

2 years ago Editor's Note0

Let’s get real: Not everyone has the funds or resources to just pack up and go on a getaway during the summer months, but we all can imagine, right?

Well, sometimes the coolest places to visit are honestly in our vicinity. Therefore, I’m dedicating June to traveling in our own backyards. Yep! We’re “staycationing” — local vacationing and using our creativity to take us places we’ve never been before.

And if you have kids, what better way to save on country cash money than exploring nationally known museums, amusement parks and outdoor excursions that provide fun, educational outlets within your neighborhood? This month I’m going to show you what to backpack while navigating your surrounding countryside and community in pure Southern style.

— Ride on!
