Enjoy Southern hospitality during a trip to the great state of Georgia. Start on the state’s eastern coast with a walk through the Broad Street Historic District in Augusta. Head south to Savannah and toss a coin into the 19th-century fountain in Forsythe Park. Next, venture north to visit the capital city of Atlanta for a tour of Martin Luther King Jr.’s childhood home. Enjoy much more—including buckets of peaches— when you book a stay at one of the many hotels in Georgia.
If you’re staying in the eastern part of the state, settle into your Augusta hotel, then hit the town to see what’s out there. Travel around the city by embarking on a Historic Trolley Tour of Augusta and get a look at the Augusta Canal, Augusta Museum of History, and the Haunted Pillar. After a day of hobnobbing around town, quench your appetite with a plate of fried chicken, cornbread, and corn on the cob—a Georgian staple.
Keep heading south along the South Carolina border until you run into “The Hostess City of The South,” also known as Savannah. Take a pedicab through its Historic District and get a glimpse of the dazzling Victorian homes that line the streets. After that, head north for a stopover at an Atlanta, Georgia, resort and be sure to taste-test The Varsity, a legendary drive-in restaurant serving hot dogs and hamburgers. Need to walk off all those calories? Trek the Appalachian Trail, 101 miles north. You don’t have to walk for hours, but just enough to settle those onion rings.
Whether you come for the peaches or the history, Georgia is the best place for a relaxing vacation. Search Travelocity for great deals on resorts in Georgia and cheap flights so you can save more money for an extra bucket of the state’s favorite fruit.
