Georgia Travel

Georgia is such a pretty state to me. I decided long ago to call it my home. I settled in Georgia as a teen and have been here every since. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except perhaps Hawaii. 🙂 My favorite travel destination is Savannah followed by Jekyll and St. Simmons Islands and following up with Atlanta. There is always something going on in these areas no matter the season. You can find something for everyone to do and enjoy in Georgia.

In Savannah, Georgia you will find comfort and historical style in the historic district. One of the things I love about Savannah is the trees filled with Spanish moss. We don’t have that around here and when I get to Savannah I love to take photos of the moss hanging in the trees. Savannah is also known for its architecture and historic structures. The private homes and public buildings are absolutely gorgeous. If you love lighthouses be sure to visit the lighthouses near Savannah. The temperature averages 60 degrees in winter and I for one could spend days viewing all of the buildings and parks. From December 1-3, 2014 you can view the beautiful art shows featuring Barbara Davis. For the nature lover, be sure to walk the 2-mile Native Animal Nature Trail in Oakland. Before you leave Savannah, be sure to spend the day on River Street where you’ll find restaurants and taverns galore. You’ll definitely want to stay to enjoy the nightlife on River Street as well.

If you would rather vacation near the ocean, book a room in Jekyll or St. Simmons Islands. You can ride a horse and buggy through town or ride horseback on the beach. You can go fishing or sailing and enjoy the nightlife. I climbed to the top of the Tybee Island light station and museum and the view was spectacular. I don’t think I would do it again as I’m terrified of heights, but it was definitely worth doing once.


There is also much to do in Atlanta Georgia from dinning in the revolving Sun Dial Restaurant {the view is amazing}…

…to visiting the Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium where you can meet a dolphin face to face in the new Dolphin Encounter Program. I’ve always recommended eating at Dante’s Down the Hatch and was heartbroken with they closed their doors. It was such a fun place to eat the best fondue and watch the live gators in the moat. They will be missed by everyone who came to love the restaurant as I did. But, there is still much to see and do in Atlanta. I try to go to the Atlanta Botanical Garden as often as possible and it’s worth the visit while you are vacationing in Atlanta. You can purchase your Holiday Lights garden light show at Atlanta Botanical Garden online. You won’t want to miss this event. Click on the link to see what else is going on at this time.
