Wander South is a travel blog penned by Brian and Dawn Crawford. We moved to North Carolina in June 2010 and blog to share our love of the NEW South. The South is an incredible land filled with beautiful people, fascinating history, tasty food and wonderful wanders. Come on down for a spell, we’ll surprise you with our hospitality, community and love.
From our home base is Raleigh, North Carolina we tend to wander about then blog about travel, food, shopping, culture, attractions, beach trips and dog-friendly travel in the southern US of A. As professional travel writers we will and do accept free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation from companies & organizations and write our honest opinion about them.

Meet Your Wander-ers:
Dawn A Crawford – Wife, lady, child-at-heart, born to be a southerner. I live life loudly and without regret. While I was born in California and raised in Colorado, but my heart has always been in the South. My idea of a wonderful travel destination is where I can relax, absorb some culture, laugh and learn. As an entrepreneur who started my own communications agency, I want my life to be filled with passion, not dollar bills. I garden to make the world a more beautiful place. I’ve fulfilled my dream to live near the ocean. I enjoy everyday as if it was my last.
Brian D Crawford – Husband, master of the pen, dabbler in doodles. I’m a copywriter and creator by day. Born in Arkansas, I’m glad to back home in the South. My idea of a perfect vacation is one where I get to spend the day with my family, eat some tasty food and learn a little bit more about our fascinating world. When I’m not writing, sketching (my drawing skills are unfortunate), creating, or taking pictures of my world, you can usually find me in my backyard garden or working. I’ve been known to write a bit, read a bit, and draw tragic sea monsters. Oh yeah, and I love space!
Herman J Crawford - Doggy, gentleman, tail-wagger. I have a nose for the ocean and a tail for adventure. My idea of a good day out is filled with lots of stuff to smell, a long walk and a few dog treats along the way. I like to ride the rails as a hobo, find new places to hang my lease and make my mark on the world.
