About Us

Fried chicken, pimento cheese, bird dogs, the Allman Brothers, and seersucker… These Southern standards have never been more popular in the U.S. For those of us who have lived in the South, these classics conjure memories of fishing in the neighbor’s pond, Saturday nights in the back of a pick-up truck drinking Boone’s Farm from the bottle with classmates, and lazy Sunday afternoons sitting on the front porch sipping sweet tea after church.

Discover Southern was born out of a love for Southern living and traditions. We will try to bring you information and history peppered with some memories, old and new.

“I was raised in rural North Georgia on a 30-acre, sheep and blueberry farm. After graduating from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!), I moved to Atlanta and have traveled extensively. While other places are great to visit, I can’t wait to get back to ‘Dixie’.”       ~Denise
