Georgia Hotels, Restaurants, Attractions and More

Home to one of the world’s busiest airports and one of the country’s most happening downtown scenes, Atlanta alone will keep Georgia on your mind. But there’s more to the Peach State than its revitalized capital. Travelers will find a little bit of good and evil among the moss covered squares of Savannah, while adventurers will be thrilled by the Chattooga River rapids in the Smoky mountains. The state is also a goldmine for heritage travel, bringing to life African American, Civil War and Native American experiences of the South.
