A certain southern belle (yours truly) was perusing her favorite southern magazine (Southern Living) when she came across a fabulous article on tons of free southern things to do (101 to be exact). Here are the highlights:
Taste the South
Fried-chicken lovers shouldn't miss the Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum in Corbin, Kentucky. Yes, that's Sanders as in Colonel Sanders of KFC. Spice it up with a tour of the Tabasco plant on Avery Island, Louisiana. Cookies, bread, beer, and whisky round out the rest of the options on the foodie list.

Bask in Nature
Waterfalls abound in North Carolina (see Glen Falls and Bridal Veil Falls), Texas (see Gorman Falls), and Tennessee (see Grotto Falls). Kentucky's Red River Gorge and West Virginia's New River Gorge showcase the awesome power of water carving through rock. Stick around for some rafting and hiking.

Hear Some Tunes
Whether it's jazz at The Lounge in Kansas City, Missouri, or rhythmic beats pouring out of one of the endless clubs on Frenchman Street in New Orleans, free music is a sure thing in the South. Nashville and Memphis are also obvious must-sees for music-lovers.
Missouri Travel Guide
Manatees grace Florida's waters each winter, while Georgia's waters teem with alligators. Even many zoos are free, such as in Washington, D.C., and St. Louis, Missouri.
