See Georgia for a Unique Vacation Georgia has something for everyone. From pristine beaches to scenic mountains, from Native American monuments to the bleeding edge of today’s music scene, Georgia has it all. The state offers a number of diverse destinations:
Atlanta and Athens
A major transportation hub, Atlanta and nearby Athens also support major cultural institutions and recreational facilities and a vibrant night life including innovative new music, particularly in Little Five Points and areas near Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia.
Macon was a cultural centre before Europeans came to Georgia. Towering over the banks of the Ocmulgee River near the centre of the city, stand the huge mounds of Ocmulgee National Monument. The small city supports a surprising variety of things to see and do.
Historic Albany in southwest Georgia is famous for its role in the American Civil Rights struggle in the middle of the twentieth century. Its waterways offer great sport and museums and galleries abound. Chehaw Park’s zoo will delight younger visitors.
From Savannah south to Brunswick and on to Jacksonville in Florida, Georgia’s coast is a paradise of beaches with pure sand, gentle surf and some of the state’s most interesting historical monuments.
Things to See and Do in Georgia
The Okeefenokee Swamp
In Southeast Georgia and northern Florida lies the famous Okeefenokee, a unique wetland area with unparalleled bird life and the occasional alligator.
The Fox Theatre
Located in downtown Atlanta, the “fabulous Fox” is a gorgeous 1929 structure with Moorish touches. The Fox hosts many of the city’s must-see performances.
The Georgia state park on Jekyll Island offers not only prime beaches, a fishing pier and miles of flat roads suitable for bicycling, but also its beautifully restored cottages, the summer homes of the early twentieth century’s industrial elite.
