The NY Times is doing a 12-week travel series right now, on frugal traveling across the US. Their report today was from a trip to Georgia and Alabama, and they’re doing Tennessee and Kentucky next.
In Alabama, the reporter had ribs at Dreamland in Northport (was the original closed that day? It’s really close to where he was…), breakfast at the Waysider in Tuscaloosa, visited the Westervelt-Warner museum (which I haven’t been to but is supposed to be really good), and then went to the Bear Bryant museum, which he actually said reminded him in some way of the Joseph Stalin museum. Blasphemy!
What’s even more interesting than the reporter’s articles, though, are the wonderful suggestions that people are sending in (see the comments section at the bottom of each article post).
