The Ancient Forest In Georgia That’s Right Out Of A Storybook
There aren’t too many places left in the country that are undisturbed. Which is why when we come across a place that would use the term “ancient” in it’s description, it’s hard not to be impressed. This ancient forest in Georgia, for example, is not only a historical wonder, but it’s also stunningly beautiful—almost right out of a storybook. And the best part is, you can visit any time you’d like.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
