What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the state of Georgia? Like many people, you might think about the hot weather in the summer or perhaps you may think about the swamp. Although it certainly is true that the state has a big swamp and plenty of heat in the summer, that isn’t the only thing that could come to your mind. In fact, just a visit to Georgia for a few days and you will be enlightened on exactly what the state has to offer.
First of all, much of the state is quite beautiful and you would do well to explore some of the nature that is within it’s boundaries. For example, the mountains are awesome and in fact, the beginning of the Appalachian trail is in Georgia. This trail stretches from that location some 2,000 miles to Maine. Many people have hiked parts of the trail over the years and the trail head in Georgia is one of the most popular locations. If you love going out in the mountains for a hike, why not give it a try? You don’t need to go the distance, just get out and enjoy some fresh air.
We had mentioned the swamp earlier and if you love nature, you shouldn’t miss what it brings to the table. Perhaps you could go to one of the wildlife preserves and look at some of the many different types of birds that are in the area. You can also check out an alligator or two if that is something that sounds interesting to you. One other thing you might want to try is going out on an air boat ride. It is a lot of fun and a unique way to see the surroundings.
If you aren’t someone who wants to spend their time outside on vacation, there are plenty of areas in the state of Georgia that offer other options. One that is particularly interesting is the area of Atlanta. It is one of the nicer cities that I have ever visited and there sure are a lot of things to do. Of course, you don’t need to go very far outside of the city to enjoy some natural surroundings as well.
Georgia is a great place to visit. With so many things to see and do, it is not out of the question that a visit could lead to a move.
