Georgia sits a little more than 3 miles from where I live and it is a "peach" of a state. There are so many things to do in the state of Georgia that if I wrote about them all we would be here for days on end, so I am going to divide it into regions. In North Georgia you have the mountains. One of my favorite places to visit there would be Historic Dahlonega-
It is the site of the first major gold rush and considered to be one of the most quaint and picturesque historical towns in the North Georgia mountains. You absolutely must visit the historical square with all of the shops and restaurants....and of course you have to pan for gold. In this general area you can visit Helen, GA a lovely German village nestled in the mountains, stop in and watch a baby being born at the Cabbage Patch factory, white water raft, see nature at its finest, and learn some amazing things about Georgia and it's history.
In the Central Part of the state you have Atlanta, Calloway Gardens, Oconee White Water Rafting adventures, The Aquarium, Museum of High Art, see the historic Fox theater.
Shop til you drop, hike trails at one of the many parks in the area, and immerse yourself in history. In the Southern Part of the state you can take an airboat ride through the Okeefenokee Swamp, eat some amazing peaches and pecans, take in a lot more history or just enjoy the ride. If you are looking for the beach then head over to Tybee or St. Simons and enjoy some rustic beach life.
Georgia has it all and it is there for you to enjoy. From Stone Mountain to the Florida line, the beach, or North Carolina you can't do it all in one trip. Once you have been here....you will have to come back.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
