Georgia Tourism and Travel: Best of Georgia
While Atlanta is the anchor and capital of Georgia, you can aim in any direction to find distinctly different regions – from the tail of the Appalachians in the North to the rolling Piedmont hills and on down to the seaside marshes in the East. Atlanta lays claim to the state’s number one attraction – Stone Mountain State Park. They say it best - “Serious fun. Endless adventure.” Just 15 minutes from downtown, the world’s largest exposed granite dome is surrounded by 3,200 acres of natural beauty and stimulating activities for every member of the family – sky rides and hiking paths, laser shows and pedal boats along Stone Mountain Lake. Golfers tee it up, while red foxes dash across the fairways in a state where the Masters Golf Tournament creates revered green-jacket memories every year. It’s a long downhill ride down to historic Savannah, a ‘stone’s throw’ from the Atlantic and a virtual step back in time to Southern architecture and stately squares. St. Simon’s and Jekyll Islands offer barrier island beauty and a wonderful combination of outdoor activities, historic sites and artistic culture. Originally the private winter playground of wealthy northeasterners, Jekyll Island stretches along 10 miles of coastal beaches and inland marshes. Cycling and walking paths wind under moss-laden oaks, and a tour of Millionaire Village takes you back to those Cornelius Vanderbilt and J.P. Morgan days. The kid-friendly Summer Waves Water Park adds man-made fun to natural water sport activities. Coastal golf courses and sophisticated St. Simon’s Island appeal to moms, dads and vacationing couples.

- ByTripSavvyTop 8 Outdoor Performance Venues in AtlantaFly above Atlanta and you may be surprised to find a blanket of lush trees instead of a concrete jungle. This surprising sight is what earned Atlanta the nickname “City in a Forest.” When the weather is warm, nearly all of the city’s public spaces become venues for concerts, art, and performances of every kind (for instance, Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Concerts in the Garden or Park Tavern’s Sunset Sessions). But even when the sun goes into hiding and the weather cools down a bit, you can count on these venues to offer a roll-call of nationally acclaimed performances (often from local talent) surrounded by Atlanta’s natural beauty.8 items
- ByWell+GoodHealthy Hotspots in AtlantaIf you’re looking for the perfect mix of Southern hospitality and incredible food, Atlanta’s got you covered. As home to one of the busiest airports in the US, chances are good you’ll find yourself in the ATL at one point or another—and if you’re planning to see more than the airport while you’re there, you’re going to need to know where to get your wellness fix. A-town is in the midst of a boutique fitness boom, with some of the nation’s buzziest new studios opening their doors within its city limits. And while the notoriously car-centric town is still pretty dependent on its vehicles, there’s plenty of space to bike, run, and scooter underneath the country’s densest urban canopy, too. Coupled that with a culinary scene that’s adding more and more clean-eating establishments to its offerings, plus some pretty unique entertainment options (ping-pong emporium, anyone), and start to get a sense of what makes the place so charming.
