"The South: Noun. A place where: Tea is sweet and accents are sweeter, summer starts in April, macaroni and cheese is a vegetable, porches are wide and words are long, pecan pie is a staple, Y'all is the only proper noun, chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy, everything is darlin', and someone's heart is always being blessed." - Urban Dictionary
It's a sweet home in Birmingham, Alabama. This state is beautiful and the north is no exception! There are free things, haunted things, old things, and everything in between.
Florida is the place to be these days, y'all. From Disney to Miami, I don't think a state gets more diverse. All the yankees from up north come to visit for the "winter" - or retire for good. CARES has some fabulous things going on in Tampa and Orlando!
There is lots to love about the south, but Atlanta has got it goin' on! You guys have art, culture, history, southern hospitality, eats, sights, and the whole nine yards. The city just seems to ooze sophisticated class with the art and architecture. The history is rich and diverse. The food looks amazing and the fall colors are some of the best on the planet.
If you're a CARES Team in our Southeast region, you won't want to miss out Pinterest boards for Tampa Bay, Orlando, Birmingham, and Atlanta! Whether you've lived in the southeast your entire life or are brand new, there's always more to explore. The more you explore, the more you fall in love with the place you get to call home - however permanent or temporary it is. Help your residents, friends, neighbors, and coworkers do the same. We hope these resources can serve as a springboard and a starting point for lots of community involvement, collaboration, and volunteering in your city. Drop us a comment and let us know what else you love about your city!
