7. We’re cool by association!
Stephen Colbert and Bill Murray call this home, and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively tied the knot here, not to mention all the countless celebs that choose to vacation here. We get it. People like us. We’re cool like that.
8. Thrillist is coming
We’re here because we want second helpings of shrimp and grits, but we’re also interested in keeping those tortilla chips at Minero coming. We’re not just going to hit the touristy high points; we’re going to dive deep and share with you all the best ways to have the best times in this city. And we’re doing it all for free. So sign up below, and get ready to whip out your zero dollars...
