Jim Morekis grew up in Savannah, and he’s used to Charlestonians regarding his hometown as a wayward little sibling. As for the ongoing debate over which city is better, Jim calls it a tie: Charleston has better long-term planning, but Savannah has to-go cups (allowing anyone to explore the Historic District with a beer or cocktail in hand).

As the longtime editor-in-chief of the weekly newspaper Connect Savannah, the University of Georgia graduate has written about and experienced pretty much every cultural happening in Savannah. Jim’s favorite Carolina pastimes include relaxing on Edisto Island, climbing lighthouses on the Outer Banks, eating shrimp and grits in Charleston, playing miniature golf at Myrtle Beach, and walking through old cemeteries.

When not busy writing, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters.
