It’s officially summertime in the South. While the past few months have kept us apart and often feeling isolated, more and more people are ready to venture out safely, seeking cool comforts close to home. From waterfalls, lakes, rivers and beaches to cool breezes in mountain elevations, your readers will find calming ways to getaway while maintaining social distancing with these top Southern story ideas. 

We are all in this together. Travel South USA wants to support you by sharing story ideas from our Travel South USA state tourism offices in this newsletter. Each piece links to that state’s new TSUSA Media Room with contact information, photographs and other assets we hope you may find helpful.
