Are there any scenic roads in Georgia?
Of course! There are all kinds, from scenic byways to leisurely meanders through spring flowers and everything in between. Different regions of the state have their very own byways and scenic routes, such as the Ridge and Valley Scenic Byway, which is perfect for admirers of farmland and homestead life. You’re transported to a place filled with 19th-century barns and other items of historical interest.

What are some scenic places in Georgia?
Well, it’s certainly hard to narrow it down to just a few, but we can try. Georgia is ridiculously beautiful, though the fan favorites in terms of our natural splendor are places that look like something out of a fairy tale, like the waterfall at Rock City Gardens, or idyllic beaches like Driftwood Beach that make you totally forget you’re not in some kind of island paradise. Little Tybee Island is insanely beautiful and is only accessible by boat, so it’s a better option if you prefer to avoid crowds.
