I'm not that far South, but in West Virginia, there are many historical sites to visit....too many to list! If you're coming in the fall, it'll be that much better with the leaves changing! As far as good food....plenty of places to find authentic regional food!
The South is all about history! Charleston, South Carolina.
Overall? It's a great community. Almost everyone gets along good without any bickering. Seems like it attracts spammers but we nail them as soon as we see them. People of all ages and from around the world here to help others and have a good time doing it.
