Summer Road Trip Without Leaving Your Desk

A few months ago I blogged about other state and local history and culture blogs ("There's a Big World Out There"). Well, it's time for a little summer roadtrip --

BlogOklahoma.us ("Exploring Oklahoma's History") won the 2006 Okie Blog Award for Best Culture Blog. Read about a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried as a time capsule 50 years ago and recently unearthed.

Arizona Preservation -- "Posts and Musings from the Arizona Preservation Foundation"

Searching for Minnesota ("Things That Make Minnesota Great") With "quirky" prairie chicken, otter, and viking statues.

North Carolina Miscellany, "...a blog produced, edited, and maintained by the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill." Recent posts about barbeque and Cheerwine, and lots of historic images.

Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi -- learn about growing zucchini and the history of bentonite mining, among other things.

And last, but certainly not least, two very thoughtful blogs about a region rather than a particular state: Appalachian History and Hillbilly Savants.
