What are some more of the best hikes in Georgia?

Georgia is filled with some incredible hikes. One of the most amazing (at any time of year!) is the trek up to Brasstown Bald. It’s a steep hike, but only a little over a mile in length. It’s absolutely amazing during any season, but when surrounded by fall foliage, it truly can’t be beat. It’s the highest natural point in Georgia, and the views are some of the most magnificent in the Peach State.

What are some of the best parks in Georgia?

Georgia is filled with so many incredible state parks that are filled with natural beauty and fantastic history. If you’ve never been to Cloudland Canyon State Park, it’s a must see, especially in the winter when it’s filled with frozen waterfalls. Here are a few of our other favorite state parks in Georgia that shouldn’t be missed.

What are some of the best cities to enjoy outside activities in Georgia?

Thanks to our (mostly) mild winters, there’s ample opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities virtually all year long in Georgia! Fans of history will be enamored with Savannah, which has such a great atmosphere and plenty of museums and old homes to explore. A walk down River Street’s cobbled paths will have you feeling like you stepped back in time a few hundred years! And, of course, Atlanta has that great big city atmosphere that means there’s always some sort of festival or event going on. Looking for even more outside activities in Georgia?
