What one-of-a-kind destinations can I visit in Georgia?
Take a step off the beaten path and discover the many sites scattered across Georgia that are a little out of the ordinary. Venture out to Buena Vista to explore the expansive collection of unique buildings known as Pasaquan. Here, visitors can immerse themselves in the dreamlike vision of artist St. EOM who funded this folk art compound working as a fortune teller. Six colorfully designed buildings span seven acres of land, all detailed with symbolic hand painted elements like mandalas, intricate designs, faces and psychedelic natural landscapes. This one-of-a-kind historic landmark is protected by the Pasaquan Preservation Society who have launched a full restoration and ongoing upkeep of this remarkable site.
What can I do with kids in Georgia?
Fun filled family activities can be found in every region of the Peach State, from exciting outdoor recreation areas to fascinating children’s museums. Adjacent to Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta, The Children’s Museum is a world class “Museum Without Walls” featuring exciting exhibits and a multitude of interactive educational programs. The museum was specifically designed to ignite the imaginations of children 8 and under, but kids of all ages will make compelling discoveries at this playful institution. Your family can even explore the museum remotely through the museum’s many virtual programs offering workshops designed to meet the developmental needs of students in PreK through Grade 3.
What are the most thrilling attractions in Georgia?
For thrill-seekers, adrenaline-pumping activities can be found at a wide range of destinations all across our state. From whitewater rafting to skydiving and everything in between, extreme adventures in Georgia are never far from reach. For an unforgettable day of racing through the leafy treetops, head out to Whitesburg to brave the Screaming Eagle Canopy Tour. Offering six levels of zip line tours, guests of all ages can find a suitable route to take in the surrounding landscapes while soaring high above the ground. In Union Point, motorsports enthusiasts love tearing up the 150 miles of trails at the Durhamtown Off Road Resort. You don’t have to be an experienced ATV or dirt bike rider to enjoy this heart-racing excursion, novices can push their limits with less challenging motor activities or even head out to explore the grounds on a hunting journey.
