The world has its seven great wonders, and so does Georgia. Our state is so beautiful and magnificent, we have our own set of seven great natural wonders. I bet you’ve never seen Georgia like this before. Here are the seven most incredible natural wonders in Georgia:
1. Amicalola Falls State Park - 418 Amicalola Falls Lodge Road, Dawsonville, GA 30534
Amicalola Falls means "tumbling waters" in Cherokee--and those falls make this piece of nature significant! Get away for a fun family adventure at this park.
These gushing falls are some of the most magnificent in all of Georgia.
2. Okefenokee Swamp - Waycross, GA
This magnificent natural wonder is the largest blackwater swamp in North America and it's teeming with wildlife and wonder. It's a great place to take your kids to learn more about their state's natural habitat.

3. Providence Canyon - 8930 Canyon Rd, Lumpkin, GA 31815
Our own "Little Grand Canyon" is grand in its own right. This natural feature is not entirely natural, (since its gullies were caused by erosion due to poor farming practices in the 19th century), but the patterns in the rock are very unique. (This canyon is unbelievably gorgeous during a sunset!)
