First Day in Camden

We arrived at The Southern Inn in Camden after two hours and fifteen minutes. The trip was full of beautiful scenery and the drive to Camden was surprisingly comfortable.

The Southern Inn, located at 40 Camden Bypass, offered clean rooms and a very quiet environment. We dropped our luggage in our various rooms and ten minutes later we went to lunch at Ms. Kitty's, located at 101 Union Street. The menu had a nice mix of Southern delicacies such as collard greens, fried fish and black eyed peas. The hostess was professional and the service was fast.

After lunch, we quickly headed back to The Southern Inn, rested for an hour and headed to the local Chamber of Congress to meet a few students from the high schools in Camden. At the Chamber of Commerce, we met the director of Black Belt Treasures, Sulynn Creswell, the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Floyd Harris, the public school teacher, Brenda Autry and a history teacher at Wilcox Academy, Farrell Wright. We brainstormed a few ideas that could bring in fantastic tourist and retirees. We informed the students of the diverse group of people at UAB as well as UAB's wide range of opportunities.

Our meeting was very successful and we left for Southern Inn shortly after. After a few hours at the hotel, we had a quick dinner at Subway located at 2 Camden Bypass.
