For Thanksgiving this past year I was lucky enough to have a friend offer to get me out of town instead of spending the holiday alone like I had assumed I would. Time was spent in Greenville, Montgomery, Fort Deposit, and Jackson Lake Island.
One of the coolest little places I've visited is Jackson Lake Island. This location was used for filming Tim Burton's Big Fish, it was the site of the town of Spectre. $5 in a tiny envelope and a call to the owner gets you through the gate and to the island now inhabited by many goats and a few year-round residents.
Montgomery (at the time I was there) had a whole two breweries. We spent longer than intended at Common Bond chatting with brewers and getting a full tour and run down on how it works. Highly recommend if you're ever in the area!
