Southern Fried Travel… Not Only a Sense of Place But a State Of Mind

Taking the Road Less Traveled is the Southern Fried Travel Way

Southern Fried Travel is a part of the Southern way of life.
Southern Fried Travel is all about food, the history and the events wherever we end up.
Steeped in tradition, Southern Fried Travel takes you from storytelling to fried food. Also the locale remains deeply intertwined. Appalachia crafts and folklore make up a part of the Southern Fried state of mind. It mostly takes place in the South, but it doesn’t have to.

Southern Fried Travel Showcases our Hometowns

Southern Fried Travel shows the locals wrapped up in their hometowns with their history and a way of life that is uniquely Southern. It’s also about going to other places, occasionally outside the South, with the Southern Fried state of mind. Time tends to stand still with a slow-paced style of living. Southern Fried is about family, good eats and good stuff to do. Especially about the eats and getting together while stopping to smell the roses.

It’s a leisurely lifestyle… no hurry to go anywhere, the town’s not going anywhere. Check out the spur-of-the-moment, off-the-beaten-track events while taking the less traveled road. mainly just because it’s there and the mood strikes. We have our ghosts too.

Soak Up the Sights and the Scene

Soak up the sights and scene. Learn about all the historical architecture and events dotting the landscape. Texture and flavor go together along with the Southern Fried style… come as you are… we won’t laugh.

Be a visitor only once… the rest of the time you’re like one of the family. Come for the crafts, antiques or collectibles. Listen to the stories and chitchat of everyday life at the diner. Shop the local stores and hang out with us. Stay at hotels or a bed and breakfast with character. And check out the local characters while you’re at it.

Live Life the Southern Fried Travel Way

Go to the ballet, symphony or theater… Southern culture stays high on the Southern Fried Travelers list too. Check out each downtown or the countryside and wildlife. Or be lazy and go fishing. Take a walking tour or see some interactive storytelling. Catch the races or a ballgame.

The Southern Fried way is with  no gouging and reasonable prices too. Check out the idyllic scenery, good Country & Bluegrass music with some Rock-n-Roll thrown in, and all sorts of festivals. You name it, and it’s here.
