The year was filled with incredible road trips. Road trips that sent me exploring the south-east in search of destinations that made me say, Pull over and let me out!
2017 held movie travel. Visits to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Mountain Lake Lodge where Dirty Dancing was filmed were blockbuster highlights.
This history buff managed to find historic locations such as Patrick Henry’s home, Red Hill, as well as Thomas Jefferson’s summer home, Poplar Forest, to satisfy my love of history.
Additionally, I had the pleasure of working with several PR firms and tourism boards taking me to fun events, festivals, and attractions across the region. There was the celebration of 100-years of The Dillard House Inn in Dillard, Georgia. I visited charming cities and towns like Lynchburg, Virginia, Huntsville, Alabama, Harrisonburg, Virginia, Brookneal, Virginia and Orlando, Florida. And I welcomed some relaxing beach time on picturesque Kiawah Island. There are simply too many beautiful places to name but with each stop, I fell in love with the location and the people who graciously welcomed me.
