Georgia has some pretty weird and interesting quirks. You may not experience them by just vacationing in the state every once in a while. So, if you’re looking to become a true Georgian, then you may need to partake in these bizarre experiences at least once in your life.
1. Feasted on a Tomato Sandwich.
Tomato. White Bread. Mayo. Maybe some salt and pepper for good measure. Voila, you have yourself a true Georgia sandwich.
2. Taken a trip to the Georgia Guidestones.
This very strange and mysterious monument in Elberton, Georgia was erected in hopes to guide the residents of this Earth into a new age of reason and enlightenment. Yep, pretty bizarre.
3. You've been for spring...then this happened:
Weather in Georgia is truly bizarre. One day you're unpacking your shorts, then next you're knee deep in snow.
4. Paired shrimp and grits, and ventured into heaven.
Most true Georgians have experienced shrimp and grits at least once in their lifetime. Some people find the pairing bizarre, while others find it utterly heavenly.
5. Wandered through a cemetery.
There are SO many beautiful cemeteries peppering Georgia. Some hold such unique history involving the state. Maybe other states find it weird to wander through a cemetery, but to Georgians, it's part of the beauty of the state.
6. Visited the hauntingly beautiful ruins.
Georgia has quite a few spots to observe abandoned buildings and ruins, too. While some might find this bizarre, Georgians find it part of the charm that this special state holds.
7. Hiked Doll's Head Trail.
Just a few short miles from downtown Atlanta, you'll come across the strangest, most bizarre trail probably in the entire country. Georgians know exactly what this quirky trail is about.
8. Hiked in the mountains then swam in the ocean all in one day.
Georgia's is one of those gloriously weird states where you can be hiking in the forest one minute, then swimming in the ocean the next. All it takes is a quick drive.
9. Ordered a Coke in a restaurant. (And if they say they have Pepsi, you say "nevermind.")
We Georgians would rather go thirsty than drink traitor pop.
10. Stood next to the biggest peanut in the state for a bizarrely perfect photo op.
Georgians love peanuts so much that they erected a giant one in Ashburn, Georgia. True Georgians have personal photo proof on their mantle.
