All our Georgia Collections:
Richly endowed by nature, the Deep South state of Georgia works hard to make its hospitality standards worthy of its fabulous forests, coastal lagoons, islands, mountains, and wealth of historical attractions. The effort has paid off magnificently; this largely rural corner of Dixieland is a visitors' delight, offering almost unlimited variety. The best places to stay in Georgia put you in easy reach of something for everyone when it comes to family holiday fun..
With its pleasant, though sometimes sultry, subtropical climate, Georgia is one of the USA’s agricultural breadbaskets, hence the use of the peach as the state symbol. Fruit , cereals and greens all grow in profusion, and this landscape perfectly sets off the elegance and beauty of the stately antebellum (pre-Civil War) architecture, which has a flavour all its own.
Northerners – including President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who for years enjoyed R&R at Warm Springs GA – have discovered the delights of Georgia as a place to warm the bones. Today’s visitors are not content to stay static in one place, and why should they? Not when the opportunities – rafting, hiking, biking, live music and golfing among many others – are available to such a magnificent standard.
A visit to Georgia can take many forms. Atlanta is one of America’s most progressive cities, while the coastal centres like Savannah are a byword for old world elegance. But it’s the landscape, with its profusion of magnolia and a host of other flowers that will inspire you to go out and explore for yourself.
Got some time to spend in the Peach State? How about checking out the following highlights:
World of Coca-Cola: It helps if you like the stuff, but even so, this is a fascinating family trip looking into the rise of the world’s most popular soft drink, and the business branding phenomenon surrounding it.
Stone Mountain: Georgia had a starring role in the US Civil War (1861-865) and Confederate monuments are everywhere. None more spectacular than Stone Mountain, the somewhat controversial giant relief carving of the South’s great military heroes.
Georgia Aquarium: One of America’s finest. Great way to keep everyone amused in Atlanta. Leaders in conservation as well as presenting sea life in the most entertaining way.
