My Favorite Place

Earlier this year, The Rural Assembly put out a call: we wanted to see and share your favorite places. We wanted to celebrate the places that bring you joy, whether in your backyard, down the road, or across the country. Enjoy this collection of those places, from California, Nebraska, South Carolina and more. Over the summer, we’ll share each of these individual stories on our social media. Follow along as we travel through these favorite places. 

Have one of your own to share? Tag us in a post or email
