Georgia brings to mind southern belles, antebellum plantations, peaches, and Robert E. Lee immortalized in Stone Mountain. Echoes of the old south are not dead. In 1996, the metropolitan and capital city, Atlanta brought the world to Georgia, and its culture and influences have forever changed the face of the South. Today, you can still find the peace and tranquility in a quiet getaway to Savannah or you can groove to the rhythm of Atlanta on the cutting edge of diversity in art, culture, education, technology, and FUN!
You'll find there's more to Georgia than the busy city streets of Atlanta. Georgia's other attractions include:
- Pristine Hiking trails on the foothills of the Appalachians,
