Andrew Rush has seen a lot of changes in St. Johns County since he first moved here as a fifth grader about 20 years ago — yet some things haven’t changed. Now a graduate of St. Johns County schools (Cunningham Creek, Switzerland Point and Bartram Trail), the University of North Florida, and Stetson University School of Law, Rush lives with his wife, Stephanie, and two young boys (with another on the way this summer) in Fruit Cove, where his boys will also attend St. Johns County schools.

Despite traveling extensively, I’m still impressed when I discover big things in small places. Cartersville, Ga., a city of 20,000 residents about 40 minutes north of Atlanta, has major draws. It’s the smallest town in the U.S. with two Smithsonian Affiliate Museums. The Booth Western Art Museum houses the largest permanent exhibition space for Western art in the entire country — and what a fabulous place it is.
