If you are planning a trip to the east coast of America, it wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Georgia. The state that is just north of Florida can often get a little forgotten about. It isn’t a place that you might think of being a tourist spot, but that is a good thing! It means you won’t have to deal with crowds of people at the popular spots. There are a variety of things to see and do in the state, though.
Atlanta, as the state capitol, is home to quite a few of the popular or famous places to visit. There are a few things spread out across the state, though. If you would prefer not to drive around, you could always have someone else do the driving. You could travel by bus or by train. Train travel is a little limited in Georgia, so a charter bus might be a better option. If this sounds like something that would suit you, click here to rent a charter bus in Georgia from GOGO Charters. So here are five things that you just have to see and so, if you ever get to visit Georgia.
World of Coca-Cola
This is right by the Olympic Park and the aquarium so if you are in the area and love Coca-Cola, it would be rude not to visit! It is a lot of fun as you learn about the history and all of the types of the famous drink. I’d recommend allowing a couple of hours for the visit.
Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site
This is a great historical site to visit, in the east side of Atlanta. You know the best part? There isn’t a fee to see it. So it needs to be on your list of things to do. It isn’t something that would take all day. You would need around two or three hours to visit.
Atlanta Botanical Garden
You might think it might be hard to see a tropical paradise in somewhere like Georgia, but you’d be wrong. In a city like Atlanta, walking into it is like a breath of fresh air; it is wonderful!
Centennial Olympic Park
The home of the 1996 Olympics is a great site to go and see. There is no cost involved so it’s great just to have a look around. You only need about an hour or so to look around it.
This is a must if you are in the area. It is right in Atlanta and has lots for people of all ages. It is perfect for families and couples alike. You can spend several hours at the aquarium with all of its attractions and sights. There is a great food court area too so make some time for a break there to get some lunch or a snack. The great thing is that although you have to pay, the pass lasts all day. So if you want to take a break and visit the Olympic Park (it is right next door), then you can. So you can mix up the day, depending on what you want to do.
Have you ever been to Georgia? I’d love to hear if you have visited any of these sites.
