Plan a Georgia Staycation This Summer

Plan a Georgia Staycation This Summer

Now that you’ve bought that land that was for sale in Georgia and built that beautiful little farmhouse on it, you are thinking you may never want to leave. And right now, it’s safer not to stray across state lines. Don’t think that you need to work through another year without using your vacation time. Go ahead and take those days off. You can use that time to have the best little staycation the state of Georgia’s ever seen. What’s on your list of things to do? Take your pick.

1. Explore History

Georgia is rich with history, dating all the way back to the early 18th Century. As the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., you will find many ways to commemorate his legacy. The MLK Jr. Trail traces important steps in our country’s civil rights movement. Going even further back, you can see important Civil War sites and even landmarks from Colonial times. You can also find the birthplaces of the three American Presidents who hail from Georgia.

2. Take the Kids Out to Play

Is your little one a locomotive aficionado? There are 9 different train rides that he might love to go see. For the young as well as the older kids, theme parks like Six Flags might be more of a treat. You won’t have to be nervous taking the kids to Margaritaville at Lanier Islands – it’s a place to ride zip lines and water slides, though there may be something there for adults as well. But don’t forget to let everyone indulge in the cuteness you’ll find in Zoo Atlanta or the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

3. Find Your Favorite Music

From the music festivals you can find in Georgia to the many stops you can make throughout the state. While you might think of country music when you are in the Deep South, Georgia is also the home of blue, as you may remember the great Ray Charles singing about. Bluegrass, classical, and even more modern rock music all have special places in Georgia as well. You’ll want to make sure you find yourself close to Macon, Albany, or even Augusta to get close to the sound you’re looking to hear.

4. Have an Adventure

There are 7 natural wonders in Georgia – you could spend your staycation visiting them all! Or choose the ones that look the most exciting to you and the family. From the heights of the beautiful Amicalola Falls – the tallest waterfall in southeastern United States – to the depths of the Okefenokee Swamp – the largest blackwater swamp in North America, you’re sure to find the outdoor beauty that attracts everyone.
