Taking a road trip is one of the best methods for vacationing, especially if you’re travelling in a large group. If you’re travelling with a large amount of people, skip the hassle of long airport security lines and hire an Atlanta charter bus service instead. If you’re from ATL and have yet to see more of Georgia, this is your chance to do so.
Georgia offers everything from educational museums to kid-friendly parks to trendy restaurants and breweries. And of course, they have some of the tastiest peaches in the entire world. If you decide to spend your weekend checking out what this great American state has to offer, be sure to add these 5 stops to your road trip through Georgia.
Savannah Historic District
There is nothing quite like the Savannah Historic District. As you meander through the area, you’ll imagine yourself drinking mint juleps as you bask in the sun in your best Sunday attire. The area encompasses the old-time feel of the South since it has been preserved as much as possible to what it was during the Civil War era.
Strolling through you’ll see elegant mansions, educational museums, and the area is teeming with art and culture. At the south end be sure to explore Forsyth Park that still represents what a Southern park would have looked like in the 1800’s.
Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site
Atlanta has not only been home to famous hip hop moguls, but also one of the most influential men in history: Martin Luther King, Jr. You can see the place he was born and where he grew up and visit his burial place. You can even take a tour through Ebenezer Baptist Church where King gave countless sermons to churchgoers of the neighborhood.
Chattahoochee National Forest
If exploring nature is the main objective for your road trip, there is no better stop than Chattahoochee National Forest. This massive 750,000 acre area is located in the northernmost part of the state and is home to cascading waterfalls, lush greenery, and tons of opportunities for adventure. You can spend just a few hour here exploring the nature or pitch a tent for the night – or the week – while you sleep under the stars.
If you’re travelling with kids, be sure to stop at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta – even without kids, adults can also appreciate the beauty of the underwater world. This is the world’s LARGEST aquarium, home to over 100,000 marine animals including sharks, fishes, rays, sea urchins…just about anything you can imagine living in the waters of planet Earth. There is even one exhibit housing 2 enormous whale sharks and several manta rays.
Atlantic Botanic Garden
You can go from the wonders of the ocean to the flora and fauna of Georgia in the drop of a hat when you go from the Aquarium to the Atlanta Botanic Garden. The garden sits on 30 acres of pristine landscape within the famous Piedmont Park.
