Top 5 Georgia Travel Destinations

Before, I began I want to say this list is in no particular order or hierarchy. These are a few wonderful places I have been in Georgia and I wanted to share it with you wonderful people. This list is perfect if you live in Atlanta or neighboring cities/towns and need a quick adventure or staycation. 

I have been to numerous places and there is nowhere like Georgia. She really is a beauty. So, let's begin! 

bell mountain, north Georgia, explore Georgia

Bell Mountain 

address - 220 Shake Rag Rd, Hiawassee, GA 30546
cost - free
parking - yes, free

I was in awe when I got to the top. Bell Mountain is located in North Georgia. It is a scary drive to the top so I recommend you go with a skilled driver. The road can barely fit two cars, so if a car is coming from the opposite direction you will have to pull over and let them pass. Although, I think all the hassle to get to the top is worth it. Check out the video below for my experience!

providence canyon, explore Georgia, state park

Providence Canyon State Park

address - 8930 Canyon Rd, Lumpkin, GA 31815
cost - free
parking - yes, free

Another destination I was shocked existed in Georgia! I have always wanted to go to Arizona more specifically the Sedona area then venture out to the Grand Canyon and neighboring national parks. Until I am able to do that Providence Canyon is the next best thing. Providence Canyon is known as Georgia’s little “Grand Canyon”. The funny thing about Providence Canyon is it was a mistake. It was actually formed due to poor farming practices during the 1800s. It was a big mistake that turned into a stunning state park.

explore Georgia, Vickery Creek Falls Rosewell Mill

Vickery Creek Falls Rosewell Mill

address - 95 Mill St, Roswell, GA 30075
cost - free
parking - yes, free

This is the perfection destination for a quick trip if you live in the Atlanta area. Vickery Creek Falls is a refreshing way to get some cool air running through your hair and water splashing on your skin. I had a lot of fun and I highly recommend you check it out. Be prepared to do some climbing to get close to the waterfall. I recommend getting some water shoes!

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, explore georgia

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

address - 460 Rockbridge Rd NW, Lilburn, GA 30047
cost - free
parking - yes, free

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is another location that is close to the city and so unbelivably beautiful. Please make sure to dress modestly and be on your best behavior. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is a place of worship and they kindly open their doors to the open during certain hours of the day. I felt like I was in a different country and I loved every minute of it.

Southern Belle Farm, explore georgia

Southern Belle Farm

Address - 1658 Turner Church Rd, McDonough, GA 30252
cost - varies but inexpensive
parking - yes, free

I felt like a true Georgia Peach exploring the grounds of Southern Belle Farm. I highly recommend you bring a friend and go during one of their harvest seasons. You could pick strawberries, peaches and so much more. Even though, it is free to explore the grounds I urge you to get something from their shop and support this family business. Their homemade ice-cream is out of this world. Amazing!
