I Love Southern Hospitality

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 511 People

    Hey Ya'all

    There is something about southerns and their charm that is just different than anywhere else. They are so friendly and their accent just lends to their wonderful charm. It is like they go out of their way to be nice and they always smile at you and ask you to come back real soon...

    Southern Style

    I had moved to PA for a short while as a teenager. I had never really left the south before then although I had moved around alot growing up. When I stayed in PA, noone ever once opened my door. Maybe that sounds like nothing... but it was definately a culture shock. I'm used to...

    Today Show Did A Segment Chilvary Is Dead - Not So Down South

    The Today did a story about manners such as holding door open for a stranger , saying please, thank you, ect ect And sure enough the "yankees" failed terribly. Door after door being shut on someone, everybody being rude. That study wouldn't fly down here in the dirty south...

    Quite

    I love it. Every time I leave I feel so weird without it. It's not that people from other places around the country aren't nice, in fact, most of the places I've been have been wonderful, but there's just nothing like southern hospitality.

    Not only do I love Southern hospitality,

    I offer Southern hospitality. My family owns a hunting lodge and vacation resort in the Southeastern United States. My parents got tired of the corporate world, so they cashed out and bought the ranch. We built the lodge and restaurant first, and started offering group hunting...

    OH YES I DO

    BEING SOUTHERN MYSELF I CAN TRULY SAY THAT GENUINE SOUTHERN FOLK ARE GOOD HEARTED AND NATURED. WE ARE SIMPLE AND APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS AND IT DOESN'T TAKE A WHOLE LOT TO MAKE US HAPPY. WE APPRECIATE OUR CHILDREN AND OUR FAMILIES, GOOD TIMES, BBQ'S AND HOUSE AND CARD...

    Southern Hospitality!

    I grew up in Florida, which may be the most south you can get, but it's far from hospitable. Growing up there and spending my summers in North Carolina and West Virginia, it showed me there really were some super sweet and caring people out there. I moved more north as I got...

    Totally Humbled By It

    The crew of a certain band were nothing less than amazing to me in March. Drying me off from torrential winter downpours with the singer's towel (yum), feeding me and making me tea. Absolutely amazing Atlanta people....I'll never forget it.

    I lived in South Carolina

    for a year. Loved the area and history. Totally hated being away from the city though, being from California. But I loved the surroundings. Nothing like a sunset and random lighting storms.

    The Land of Dixie!

    I have never been treated so well, as I have in the South.  Hospitality must come natural to anyone below the Mason/Dixon line.  I aspire to be as hospitable as a good Southern woman, I should be so lucky.  If you have traveled that neck of the woods you know what...

    Living In the South

    I live in North Carolina and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else! Its a place that complete strangers are united by their love for Dale Jr and the Tarheels. You feel like you're home no matter where you go in the South and I am so blessed to be here :)

    I Love the old Southern Hospitality Days

    Southern Hospitality stops in the great state of North Carolina. Strangers down here do NOT smile, do NOT open the door for a lady or say how do Mam. The music vibrates their cars and some of the noise & words do NOT deserve to be called music. I miss the small town feeling...

    I love the south.  I grew up a yankee and have really appreciated the kindness and generosity that the south has extended to me since I've moved down here.  I hope to learn to be more hospitable someday.

    Butterflies In The South
