Best Winter Walk In Georgia
October 12, 2019
What are the best walk through light displays in Georgia?
Georgia boasts both walk-through and drive-through light displays all over the state, because this sweet southern state knows how to celebrate the holidays. When it comes time to be jolly, set your GPS towards the Fantasy Lights at Callaway Gardens, known as one of the top ten Christmas light displays in the world. You can also visit the Holiday in Lights at Centennial Olympic Park, walk your way through the Nights of Lights at Lake Lanier Island or indulge in a Stone Mountain Christmas at Stone Mountain.
Can I go hiking in the winter in Georgia?
Georgia doesn’t quite get the chill factor that New England indulges in every autumn and winter, so it’s easier to hike a majority of the state’s hiking trails throughout the year. We’d recommend heading to Raven Cliff Falls for a winter hike, or perhaps Blood Mountain, Fort Mountain State Park or Dukes Creek Falls. Each one is perfect not only for your winter hiking in Georgia prowess, but family-friendly as well.
What are the best parks to visit in the winter in Georgia?
Every park makes for a great winter visit in Georgia! If you’re looking for family-friendly spaces, however, Sweetwater Creek State Park and Springer Mountain take the cake. We’d also recommend George L. Smith State Park for the whole family.
