The end of summer always brings about mixed emotions. On one hand, you’re excited about autumn—pumpkins, apple orchards, Halloween, beautiful Georgian fall foliage. But on the other, another season of warm weather, blue skies, and sunshine is coming to a close. We hate having the end-of-summer blues, which is why we went ahead and created the best Georgia road trip yet: The Ultimate End-of-Summer Road Trip. If you’re looking for one last hurrah with your friends, or maybe want to take a solo trip through the state and enjoy one final summer celebration, then this is the road trip for you.
The entire trip takes about 4.5 hours travel time, but there are a TON of awesome stops to make along the way, even a few overnight accommodations if you’re feeling frisky. You can find the entire road trip map here, along with exact addresses for each stop along the way. Who’s ready for an adventure?
