Jim Morekis grew up just a stone’s throw from South Carolina—in Savannah, Georgia—and he’s used to Charlestonians regarding his hometown as a wayward little sibling. As a young boy who loved history, Jim was fascinated with the home of the Swamp Fox and its key role in the Revolution and the Civil War. As he got older, he discovered a more important truth about the Palmetto State: Few places in America provide such a wealth of experience in such a small package.
Jim’s favorite pastimes in the Carolinas include relaxing on Edisto Island, climbing lighthouses on the Outer Banks, eating shrimp and grits in Charleston, playing miniature golf at Myrtle Beach, enjoying a cold brew in Columbia’s Five Points, camping along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and walking through old cemeteries. He is also learning to appreciate stock car racing just a little bit. In Jim’s other life, the University of Georgia graduate is editor in chief of a weekly newspaper in Savannah, GA, and is a native of that proud city.
