Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

MyrtleBeach ThumbLong before developers set out to make Myrtle Beach a golf retreat, enslaved Africans, brought from the Caribbean, were working the land and shaping American history. The Gullah-Geechee culture was born in and around Myrtle Beach and represents the customs, traditions, crafts and language of these people. Various heritage sites celebrate and preserve this unique culture. Travelers can visit Friendfield Village, a 19th century slave village at Hobcaw Barony, or experience Gullah-Geechee art and memorabilia at the Gulla O’ooman Shop and Museum. Discover the remarkable story of Gullah-Geechee and its influence on the Myrtle Beach community.


Macon, Georgia

Macon thumbAs The Song and Soul of the South, Macon delights its visitors with music and history abound. Toted as the birthplace of Southern Rock, this Georgia town also claims music legends Otis Redding, Little Richard and the Allman Brothers as natives. However, it’s the second part of its moniker; “soul”, that sets Macon apart from other music meccas. The city has historic streets lined with antebellum mansions and various museums displaying its Civil War and African American heritage. Experience Macon’s natural history at the Museum of Arts & Sciences or explore a Native American home site dating back 15,000 years. Discover Macon, where you’ll be drawn in with a song and delighted with Southern charm and culture.


Loveland, Colorado

LovelandJust 45 minutes north of Denver, Loveland is an authentic arts community. Art in Loveland is a major part of its community and includes performing arts, entertainment and museums. Begin an artistic adventure by viewing over 380 individual works of art on public display throughout the city. Or visit the city’s beautifully restored historic theater and nationally accredited art and history museum. Either way you’ll be rewarded with artistic and natural beauty abound.


Laguna Beach, California

LagunaBeach thumbDon’t be fooled by the breezy, laidback, sandy beaches that stretch along the shores of Laguna Beach. This more-than-a-beach-town town is alive with culture and has a diverse events calendar that proves it. Festivals, shows, events, workshops and concerts are enjoyed throughout the year. If you visit in October you can witness the Plein-Air Painting Invitational which presents a weeklong landscape painting festival focusing on the community, environment and art education. Take in a show at the Laguna Playhouse, the oldest continuously operating theatre on the West Coast. The best part about Laguna Beach is that even with its diverse menu of cultural experiences, those breezy, laidback, sandy beaches are always available for a stroll.
