Georgia, the Peach State, has something for everyone and something of everything; from historical treasures in Savannah, to the beaches of the Golden Isles, the attractions of Atlanta, the outdoor adventures in the North and of course, the golf courses. As always in the Deep South, great musicians were born here; from Otis Redding, James Brown and Little Richard to REM; a fantastic time to visit is for the Savannah Music Festival in March or April.
With direct flights from London arriving into the capital Atlanta, the gateway to the South, this is the perfect place to begin your Georgia holiday. Shopping, museums, art galleries, and attractions such as the World of Coke and CNN Studios, ensure a fun stay in the city. After a city stay, get on the road and drive the 100 mile Antebellum Trail from Athens to Macon, stopping at the lovely town of Madison on the way.
Travel into the Golden Isles spending your days on beautiful beaches, kayaking, sailing and visiting the sea turtle centre on Jekyll Island. Along the coastline, explore Savannah, a stunning town with 22 public squares, as seen in the movie 'Forrest Gump', and the largest national historic landmark district in the country. See the Thomas House, a wonderful example of Regency architecture, and dine out in the waterfront area for a fun night. In the north of the state, explore the Native American roots of the Cherokee Indians and get outdoors in the Chattahoochee National Forest, the site of America’s first gold rush. Augusta, home to the masters, and the rest of the state is a haven for golf enthusiasts, with over 500 courses waiting to be played.
