Fond childhood memories make Lookout Mountain, Ga., and Edisto Island near Charleston, S.C., her favorite places to visit in the Southeast. She attended an all-girls equestrian camp called Valley View Ranch every summer on Lookout Mountain, and learned to shrimp, crab, and fish in marsh creeks on Edisto Island.
