Hey y’all! We are Karen and Emily!

We are a mother and daughter from Arkansas. We love to explore, eat at hole in the wall restaurants, meet interesting people, visit small towns, and get out in nature. We started Somewhere Down South in order to have a place to share the food, people, places, and stories of the southern US.

Our goal is for you to come along with us as we strive to experience and understand one of the most unusual, complicated, quirky, misinterpreted, difficult, underrated, and beautiful areas of the United States.
