We've learned a few things over the years. Our editors have assembled the ultimate list of must-do activities from across the region. How many have you done?
Want to take a walk on the literary side? Visit the Florida home and farm that inspired Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings to write The Yearling, or smell the flowers in Eudora Welty’s family garden in Jackson, Mississippi. You can invite yourself into William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak in Oxford, or sit on the porch of Alex Haley’s boyhood home in Henning, Tennessee. But for the ultimate literary experience, attend a performance of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird at the courthouse in Monroeville, Alabama.
