My friend and I are coming from the UK to visit her sister in Birmingham, Al and we decided to go on a mini road trip before we visit her sister.
We would really appreciate any advice as this is not something we have done before. Also, please feel free to suggest any places we should visit.
Our itinary so far is as follows:
- 3 nights in Pensacola, FL
- 3 night in New Orleans, LA
- 3 nights in Birmingham, Alabama
- 3 nights in Atlanta, GA
My friend wants to stop in Mobile, AL to visit as well so that will be one of our visits.
Also, I hate to ask this but my mom is really worried and has been watching to much news lately, is it safe at the moment in the south for a person of colour. Please don't take this the wrong way but they are reporting a lot (here in the UK) about shootings, unrest along with saying things like #blacklivesmatter which is making my mom worry. I try to tell that the media sensational a lot of things and that we don't know what went on but I am going to be in another country and she won't be able to get to me if something happens (her words).
So I thought I would ask the question so I can show her what people say. I also sorry if I offended anyone.
Anyway, I appreciate the advice.
