Georgia holidays enjoy real contrasts from the cosmopolitan capital of Atlanta to the old-world style and famous cobbled streets of Downtown Savannah, with its 22 green squares and atmospheric riverfront.
The spirit and history of the South is still very much alive in Georgia and none more so than in the bustling and cosmopolitan city of Atlanta. As one of the most historically important cities during the American Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement, today it is a rich melting pot of culture.
Cloudland Canyon State Park is simply stunning. Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, the Park straddles a deep gorge and offers picturesque hiking. Savannah is a beautiful and historic city that manages to feel like a much smaller town. It offers steamboat river cruises and some of the most beautiful architecture to be found in the state. Lake Blue Ridge is a 3,290-acre lake that surrounds an area that includes 90 national forest campsites, swimming and picnic areas.
When to go to Georgia
Georgia enjoys mild winters and hot summers. The Chattahoochee River divides the state into distinct separate climatic regions with the colder mountain region to the northwest. Average temperatures vary widely and winter is generally mild with little snowfall.
Self-drive tours in Georgia such as American Sky’s Self-Drive Southern Belle allows visitors to experience all elements of the state, starting from Atlanta and going as far as Savannah and Charleston in South Carolina. When visiting Atlanta, you can’t miss the impressive Georgia Aquarium, which includes shows that draw both adults and children into a very magical underwater world.
Touring in Georgia
American Sky’s Gone with the Wind tour begins and ends in Atlanta, covering the south of Georgia, moving into Florida, Louisiana and Tennessee. The Self-Drive Rhythms of the South also includes pre-bookable excursions that include the popular Savannah Ghost Tour.
