John and I happened to stumble upon Floyd while on a vacation with my aunt, uncle, and younger cousins. It turns out that Floyd has been voted one of the 'South’s Best Small Towns' by Southern Living. This place turned out to be much more interesting than the prim and proper ladies in the magazine made it out to be.
The self-described underemployed artists of Floyd deemed their town, ”The Republic of Floyd”. Basically, this town seems like a large hippie commune founded soon after Woodstock. That being said, the town was adorable, the storekeepers were all very nice, and the art work was incredible.This town seemed to have a great back story and some interesting residents. John and I hope to come back for the famed “Floyd Fest” and get a true feel for the people of Floyd.
