The Best Road Trips in the South for 2021

We have created a list of great destinations in the Southern United States that are an easy drive and great for weekend getaways offering one-of-a-kind shopping, local restaurants and fun attractions.

These Downtown Destinations offer safe shopping and dining options and because of their size typically have less people strolling thru their streets and shops.

Have fun safely in 2021!
