We are constantly singing the praises of our home state—its natural beauty, its historical musical past, its food culture, and its people. Our people: Alabama’s greatest treasure. In this Travel + Leisure article, author Kevin West winds his way across the state observing our inspiration and witnessing as we try to reckon with our ghosts. Natalie is among those he speaks with, talking about our region’s creative energy and about one way we are trying to face the ghosts among us, Project Threadways. The article is beautiful and authentic in its approach to our state, good and bad.
Thank you to Kevin for the look into our state and to photographer Rinne Allen for capturing its beauty. Plan your road trip.
