Best Road Trips in Georgia

See the Peach State Along These Famed Tours

Hit the road and see the Georgia Coast this summer, have a crisp adventure in Atlanta this winter, and just plain enjoy yourself any time in between.

Why not start with the Georgia Coast? Georgia has a shortest length of Atlantic coastline among all the southern states. Part of a bight that includes the westernmost point of the world’s second-largest ocean, the Georgia coast is a mix of beaches, barrier islands, marshlands, historic forts, mighty ports, and more. We should probably check it out, huh?

Now try Northern Georgia. The North Georgia Tour starts in Fort Oglethorpe just across from Chattanooga and in the shadow of Lookout Mountain. Along the way, we skirt Dalton and head into the Chattahoochee National Forest; Ellijay and East Ellijay, complete with antiques and apples; through Blue Ridge and Blairsville to the Brasstown Bald, the state’s highest point; into the beautiful Alpine village-themed Helen and down through Commerce into Athens, home to the University of Georgia.
