This Road Trip To Georgia’s Most Majestic Castles Is Like Something From A Fairytale
Did you know that Georgia was home to a handful of castles? Most likely not. Heck, we weren’t even aware of a few of these until we came across them ourselves. But, truth be told, we found enough castles in Georgia to make an entire weekend trip out of exploring them. Welcome to the castle road trip through Georgia that is as memorable as it sounds.

Castle Road Trip Through Georgia
December 14, 2020
Can I spend the night in a castle in Georgia?
Not all of the castles in Georgia will allow you to spend the night, but actually, the very first on our above-mentioned list will! Bonnie Castle in Grantville, Georgia not only has a fascinating history, but it also doubles as a bed and breakfast. So you can get your fill on all of the stories, plus spend the night in this magical place. Oh, we should also probably mention that some have said it to be haunted. Are you brave enough to spend the night?
Are there any castle-themed places in Georgia?
Beyond some of the largest homes in Georgia also doubling as castles as seen above, there is another castle-themed spot that is worth visiting. Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is a family-favorite attraction that pairs old time entertainment with a 4-course and utensil-free meal. All of this and more set inside a castle-like structure!
