What Southern cities have you visited as a tourist?

71 posts in this topic

I am interested in learning what cities everyone has been to as a tourist, not on business or visiting family. What places did you study about in advance and then take a vaction at for no other reason than to enjoy yourself? If you feel the family ties are necessary because you planned both in coordination, that is okay as well. :thumbsup:

Is it only southern cities, or cities across the country?

Is it only southern cities, or cities across the country?

Since this is the Southern forum, I'd like to keep it to Southern cities only. Good question! :thumbsup:

Only been to Texas tagging along on business trips though. Surprisingly, I've done more travelling in the northeast even though I live here (relatives).
