Whatever you think you know about little Southern towns is probably wrong...

The same people who brought you GOES WELL WITH GRITS and THE ULTIMATE SOUTHERN MUSIC ROAD TRIP GUIDE have hit the road again to find you some fascinating new sights to see. These are the places that most tourists miss during their broad-brush attempts to "see America first."

The innkeepers of The Firefly B&B in Georgia love to travel, and they love little Southern towns. Using north-central Georgia as their base camp, they've gone exploring in every direction to bring you the quaintness and the quirks of small-town Dixie life. Each of the trips in this book can be completed in a single day. A must read for micro-tourists who prefer to immerse themselves in a region instead of rushing from one end of the country to the other. If you take the time to visit these out-of-the-way places, you'll learn:
  • How to go on an archaeological dig in your own backyard
  • Where you will be most likely to find a jerkwater ghost town
  • Who started rural mail delivery service decades before the post office got around to it
  • Where to buy discount items to enhance your Southern manliness quotient
  • Why some people think that Ted Turner built the Georgia Guidestones
  • What to do with an old cotton mill
  • How to use plastic livestock to complement your yard d cor
  • Where to find the best barbecue spots in Georgia.
Whether you want to hit the road and follow in the author's tire tracks or simply immerse yourself in small-town Americana via the printed page, you're sure to discover something unexpected about little Southern towns. They aren't all the same, and what you find out about them is bound to surprise you.
