I’m in a state of relaxation as I rest my eyes along the Georgia coast. There’s the melodic sound of waves crashing and the soft touch of a gentle breeze against my skin.
My mouth starts to water, thinking about the Shrimp-n-Grits from the other day. Instinctively I stop what I’m doing and grab my phone to scroll through my Instagram photos for another look at that unforgettable meal.
This memory only scratches the surface of the potential for memorable weekend getaways in Georgia.
As an Atlanta resident, I’m fortunate to have quick access to mountain ranges, historic landmarks, quiet beaches, and riverfront cities. This state truly is a melting pot of the old and new, which makes for a fascinating destination for all types of travelers.
Georgia is easily forgotten about when travelers hastily rush past our cities and head further south. But you’re here, so you’re not about to make the same mistake.
Get ready to relax, in Southern style, with a mason jar of sweet tea, because some of the best weekend getaways are right here in the ‘Peach State’.
