Everyone deserves a break

Many people want to explore this wonderful world but many cannot afford it. I think everyone should have an adventure.  My hope is to show you how you can have adventures in your backyard, the South and beyond no matter what your budget is. I believe that every day is an adventure. For us, it can be a drive to the Tennessee River to watch the boats or a major league baseball game. We are always on the lookout for the best travel deals, especially in the South, where we live. And we are looking for things we can enjoy with our family, including the little ones in our extended family.


By the way, I am Kim Jarrett, an award-winning journalist and freelance writer. Five years ago, while visiting Montgomery, Ala. I felt a call to begin this site. You will get to hear more about Montgomery and our adventures there later.  I specialize in writing about finance and now, travel. My goal is to use my expertise to help you and your family have affordable adventures.

My family has been in more than 100 cities and small towns in the past five years. And we live in beautiful Northwest Georgia, just a short drive away from Tennessee, Alabama, and the Carolinas. We can get to many places in Florida and Kentucky in a day. We will be bringing you the best deals for travel, hotels and attractions. I will be telling you stories of interesting places you may not know but are in your region. Since we are in the South, most of this site is focused on this region. But we have traveled to many places beyond the South so look for stories from there, too. And we will share lots of pictures on our Instagram and Facebook pages so follow us on social media!

You will get to meet all of the family as we continue on the journey. I just wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself. If you have a story idea, email me at kim@kimberlysloanjarrett.com. Please remember any trip more than 150 miles away from Cartersville, Georgia requires an overnight stay for us.

This site is a work in progress so bear with us and buckle in! It’s going to be a fun ride!
