Here are the top ten articles for the Southeast USA Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. South Carolina State Museum
You don't have to be a South Carolina native, or even a resident, to enjoy the South Carolina State museum. It provides a wide variety of programs from family friendly events to lectures by prominent scholars, as well as live performances and living history re-enactments.
2. Redmont Hotel Birmingham
Named after Birmingham's Red Mountain, the Redmont Hotel opened in 1925 and is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the oldest operating hotel in Birmingham.
3. One Fine Day in Blackville, SC
Blackville, a small town in rural Barnwell County was something of a tourist destination even before there were white settlers in the area. Though it has suffered through bad economy and declining population, it is still a great place for a day trip.
4. Jobs Across the Southeast
Like most of the country, the Southeast US has been hit hard by problems with the economy. Unemployment in the country is 8.2%. In the Southeast, Alabama is doing the better than the national average at 7.4% while both Georgia and South Carolina are above the median with 8.9% and 9.1% respectively.
5. Joseph Manigault House
One of the more unique historic homes in Charleston was very nearly not available for our viewing pleasure. Rescued by the Society for Preservation of Old Dwellings in the 20s, the Joseph Manigault house is set up to show what life would have been like in the early days of the colony.
6. Boiled Peanuts
Boiled peanuts are widely consumed and commercially available in the southeast US. The peanuts are sold in the hull and either boiled with only salt or with various flavors ranging from bacon to "Cajun." While not suited to all palates, they are quite popular. Try some and decide for yourself.
7. National Civil War Naval Museum
Usually when you think about the Civil War, you remember the great land battles like Gettysburg or Bull Run. However, much of the war was fought on the sea and major waterways. Discover the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus, GA
8. Labor Day Across the Southeast
Celebrated the first Monday in September, Labor Day has evolved from a purely labor union celebration into a general last fling of summer festival. Here are some of the top events celebrating Labor Day or simply scheduled for the weekend.
9. Mint Juleps
No one has a definite answer to the origin of the Mint Julep. While bourbon is the usual choice for mint juleps today, several other types of alcohol have been used over the years. There is little doubt that it is a southern creation, probably dreamt up in the eighteenth century. Try one today.
10. B&B On the Sea - A Review
The “Blue Hour” is a luxurious 48’ Californian yacht. It provides an at dock party facility, cruises (everything from sunset cruises on Charleston Harbor to week long Bahamas getaways) and most importantly, a bed & breakfast. Check out the review of this unusual lodging opportunity.
