A 2023 Travel Bucket List – Garden & Gun

Gateway to the island

Harbor Island The Bahamas has always been on my hit list. Looks like this is the year to do it. I’ll definitely be asking my friend Griffin Bufkin, owner of Southern Soul Barbeque, for some must-do’s. According to Bufkin, who has been a regular visitor to the island for sixteen years, December is pleasant with cool weather, good fishing and the Junkanoo in full swing.

Sweet Home Atlanta

I loved living Atlanta From 2004 to 2012, but I haven’t been back for a good visit in a long time. This spring, my husband and I are planning to go there to meet some close friends and eat and drink as much as possible. I want to try new (to me) places like Twisted Soul and Redbird, and revisit old favorites like Brick Store Pub, Miller Union, and Muss & Turner’s. And of course, try executive chef Sam Davis’ old-fashioned Creole shrimp and grits at the Garden & Gun Club.

Immerse yourself in nature

I’m turning forty this year…by the end of this year…I’ve already celebrated my birthday as a runaway. I like to bring my family A lodge on Little Saint-Simons Islanda remote eco-resort accessible by boat, celebrate the new decade by ditching the winter screens, stargazing, hunting for oysters, and enjoying the tranquility of the Georgian coast.

Tennessee’s Epic Music Venue

This year I finally want to go to a concert Caves in Grundy County, Tennessee, which hosts underground shows in real caves. It won G&GThe South was a musical favorite last year, and I’ve long wanted to experience its otherworldly acoustics for myself. In May, the venue will host the Ride the Tide music festival, featuring the likes of Lucero, the North Mississippi Allstars and Ruthie Foster.

The arrival of art

I like to visit Richmond-Next to Asheville and Charleston, this is one of my favorite creative Southern cities. As an artist, I get a lot of inspiration when I visit RVA’s museums (like VMFA and VCU’s Institute of Contemporary Art) or stroll through historic neighborhoods like Fan. This time I really want to check out the National (and the upcoming Andrew Bird Show!) and Studio Two Three, a community-owned printmaking and fine art studio and shop.

Two adventures

There are two places on my list: First, Montana for fly fishing and hiking. The best time is the end of summer, when the humidity of the lowland is relieved. Second, the west coast of France, especially Cap FerretA casual place where you can cycle from town to town, scale giant sand dunes, eat local oysters, drink rosé, and surf.

Cliffside Cave

We are looking forward to our trip California Central Coast this year near Big Sur. Although we live close to the beach in Charleston, the tall, craggy sea cliffs are a stark contrast to the sand dunes in our lowlands. The walk along the beach is breathtaking and you never know what wildlife you might see – we last spotted sea otters and a few migrating humpbacks.

Black Belt Tour

I dream of a road trip Alabama, Mississippi focuses on three things: art, gardens and food. My inspiration, my guide: chef Scott Peacock, I’ve wanted to take a baking class since we posted this piece. Fingers crossed, this year.

Runner’s World

I lived St. Petersburg, Florida, was years ago, and I can’t wait to see how it’s evolved. I can’t wait to visit the emerging breweries around Central Avenue, run along St. Pete’s waterfront, and enjoy a grilled sandwich or four on the beach at Pass-a-Grill.

Texas Two Steps

Two of my best friends recently moved to Texas, and while I’m sad, I love looking for any excuse to travel. I will go this March Austinthen go to the road Dallas. I’m a big foodie, so I’m most excited about each city’s (very different) food scene. Plus, I’ll break out the cowboy boots at any excuse.
