The Great American Town Tour

I love a good parade and absolutely love getting to see places and hear stories about great towns in our wonderful nation. I was reading my way around Blogland last night when I ran across a fantastic invitation from a fellow Texan at Huckleberry Prairie. She is hosting the Great American Town Tour on July 1. What better time to view some of America's interesting towns and cities than on the eve of our Independence Day!

I took the liberty of copying and pasting the complete rules from Huckleberry Prairie's site below. For a transplanted Texan, she really knows about Texas hospitality. So, yawl check it out and join us as we go on the Great American Town Tour.

Huckleberry's rules for the tour:

July 4th is rapidly approaching and there is no better way to celebrate our country's birthday than with a tour of the towns that we all live in... all across America (and beyond! All countries are more than welcome to participate!)

Here are the rules:

Take pictures of your town (OR where you grew up OR have lived)... and anything that you would like to share about it (historically, significance, a story, a little bragging or some local insight). It can be your Main Street... your water tower... your courthouse, city hall, farm fields, city skyline, favorite restaurants, bakeries or shops (Antique and craft shops, home decor stores, yes please!), rivers, oceans, a sample of housing architecture and styles, tourist attractions, your neighbor's rose garden or the view from your own backyard... the possibilities are endless. It will be a little Blogland vacation with each participant's post! I'm so excited and hope y'all will join in the fun! Please pass the word along to all of your blogging buddies or copy and paste the party button onto your blog... the more people that join in, the merrier our Blogland vacation! ;)


  1. Love this idea. Will be online with Beautiful Bardstown, Kentucky, home of My Old Kentucky Home, and capital of the Bourbon Industry.

  2. That sounds like fun! I will try to join in with my town...
    Thanks for passing the word!
