As the largest state east of the Mississippi River, Georgia offers visitors a mix of everything the South has to offer. With mountains to the north and coastal marshlands to the east, Georgia is a versatile state that never fails to entertain the casual visitor. The state’s small, antebellum towns and large bustling cities vie for the traveler’s attention, offering a look into Georgia’s past and recent history. Despite its location in the Deep South, Georgia is known for hosting two pivotal battles during the later stages of the Civil War. The state is home to the site of the Confederate victory at Chickamauga, and the Confederate defeat of Atlanta, in which the city was ransacked and burned by the Union army. During the Civil Rights Movement the world watched Atlanta, a stage for civil rights protests and Martin Luther King’s activism. Today the state still plays a pivotal role in the nation, as it is home to multinational companies such as the United Parcel Service and Coca-Cola.
Georgia’s capital Atlanta is amicably known as the ‘Capital of the South,’ and is often a must-see destination for visitors to the state. The ever-growing city is home to more than five million residents, and is the victim of unkempt suburban sprawl. The city center is frequented by tourists because of its big-name attractions, making it a necessary stop for any Georgia adventure. The Georgia Aquarium delights visitors with a plethora of exhibits, shows and exotic animals. The aquarium is home to the world’s largest exhibit, known as the Ocean Voyager, which holds more than 6.3 million gallons of water and thousands of fish. Visitors can also catch a theatrical Dolphin Tales show, which showcases the talents and teamwork of the aquarium’s dolphins and trainers. The city is also home to the World of Coca-Cola, which features the world-famous Pop Culture Gallery, behind-the-scenes tours of the Coca-Cola bottling process and a history about the evolution of the company in over the past century. Visitors can also check out the renowned Atlanta Zoo, which features notable animals such as giant pandas, gorillas, orangutans, giraffes and more. Guests can also choose from an assortment of the historical city’s many major museums to learn more about its role in the Civil Rights Movement.
Another Georgia must-see is the small town of Savannah. Located on the Savannah River, just across from South Carolina, the city is filled with historic antebellum architecture and a strange, storied past. Guests can learn about the mysteries of this town’s somber side by visiting Savannah’s Landmark Historic District, which features the Owens-Thomas House and the Mercer House. Guests can discover the town’s many haunted sites by taking a bone-chilling Blue Orb Ghost Tour. Visitors can learn more about what life was like during the Civil War by visiting Old Fort Jackson and Fort Pulaski. Travelers can learn about Savannah’s culture by touring the Telfair Museum of Art or catch a show at the Savannah Theater. Movie lovers can enjoy the autumn Savannah Film festers while music aficionados can attend the spring Savannah Music Festival.
Located within Georgia’s Historic Heartland, Jackson presents visitors with a variety of outdoor activities and a laid-back small town feel. Guests can visit Indian Springs, the oldest state park in the nation, and stroll along the plethora of nature trails, seeking the allegedly healing springs. Those looking for an aquatic adventure can swim, boat or fish on the 4,750-acre Lake Jackson or retreat into the cool forest trails at High Falls State Park. Nearby Madison, Georgia offers a spectacular array of historic buildings, specialty shops and more than 160 antique dealers. Visitors can stroll through the streets and discover for themselves why this town will forever go down in history as the town that General Sherman refused to burn.
