There are so many reasons for enthusiastic travellers to consider Georgia holidays. Celebrated for the role it played in the Civil War and simply oozing with untainted Southern charm, it is a wonderful destination for history buffs and anybody who thrives in the outdoors.
While Georgia is home to a number of enthralling, welcoming cities, Savannah is arguably the most sought after. Not only is it the oldest city in the state, it’s also a city that offers a balanced mix of activities and sights. Think Old Fort Jackson, Bonaventure Cemetery, and the ever popular Broughton Street which is abundantly speckled with high end boutiques and artisanal foodie havens.
Tallulah Gorge State Park is another highlight for adventurers and one of the must sees to add to any Georgia holiday itinerary. It promises adrenaline inducing vistas and some of the freshest air in the country. The gorge after which the park is named is a mammoth two mile long gash which descends close to 1,000 feet deep – definitely not for the faint of heart.
