Atlanta is not only known for its impressive skyline and the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, but also as the birthplace of the famous human rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The trail that was named after him takes visitors to numerous scenes of the African-American freedom struggle throughout Georgia and is an absolute must for those interested in history.
In the northeast of Georgia you will find the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, which merge here into the Blue Ridge Mountains. Crystal-clear streams and lakes embedded in a rolling landscape mark the starting point of the famous Appalachian Trail – and the backdrop of the first gold rush of the USA.
On the Georgian coast there is an impressively varied landscape. There are, for example, the paradise-like Golden Isles with their endless sandy beaches – right next to the impressive Okefenokee Swamps, where more than 15,000 alligators live. And you should certainly not miss a visit to the romantic city of Savannah.
Although the town of Chattanooga lies in Tennessee according to today's land survey, it is still closely linked to Georgia's history. Where today the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park extends, once raged one of the most important battles of the American Civil War, in which the control of the railway junction Chattanooga was decided.
You can enjoy genuine southern romanticism in the Historic Heartland. Explore the Antebellum Trail, which runs between Macon and Athens past magnificent Southern estates. Feel like part of the novel "Gone with the wind" as you relax in a rocking chair on a shady veranda framed by Spanish moss and enjoy a glass of refreshing iced tea.
