While overall I would say that I have the least experience in the South, some of my absolute favorites memories have taken place below the Mason-Dixon Line. Trips to Disney World, Epcot, Universal Islands of Adventure. Swimming with dolphins in Key West. Visiting my grandmother in Tampa. Witnessing a thrilling Northwestern vs. Auburn game at the 2010 Outback Bowl. And then there was the Great 2007 Roadtrip: A & A Take American By Storm during which my best friend and I had MULTIPLE unforgettable experiences in Tennessee alone (Memphis, Nashville, Oak Ridge, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge) – beating out every other state we drove through, in addition to surviving a couple terrifying thunderstorms. And Cadillac Ranch. In fact, I’m going to say that the South might be the richest route of roadtrip treasures there is. And if you don’t believe me, just ask me about Julian’s Pizza and Karaoke.
