    Georgia on your mind?

How to enjoy Atlanta

From small town charm to big city living to coastal beaches, Georgia is crawling with possibilities. Wander through antebellum mansions or view ultra-modern art, dine on grits or haute French cuisine—whatever your taste, Georgia can satisfy it

  • The exclusive enclave of Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro offers 117 holes of golf designed by luminaries like Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio
  • Madison, about an hour outside Atlanta, was spared a razing by General Sherman and today whisks you back in time to the antebellum south
  • Buckhead is a well-heeled area of Atlanta with upscale boutiques, galleries and antiques shops where you can drop a few (hundred) dollars

Georgia’s capital city has come a long way from its Gone With the Wind days. Atlanta is a thriving metropolis jammed with arts and cultural offerings, big league sports and historic sites galore. But never fear; mom-and-pop shops still serve the best biscuits you’ve ever tasted. City slickers may also feel at home in evocative Savannah, whose romantic vibe has been immortalized in books and movies.

But plenty of people skip Georgia’s urban spots and head straight for posh destinations like Reynolds Plantation, a golfer’s paradise or the aptly-named Golden Isles. St. Simons and Sea Islands used to be reserved for the rich and powerful, but these days you’re allowed to frolic alongside the Rockefellers. In fact, we wouldn’t advise a trip to Georgia without a visit to its barrier islands.

    When to visit Atlanta

    Georgia can get downright feverish in the summer, so if heat (and mugginess) isn’t your cup of sweet tea, opt for more temperate spring, when the azaleas are in bloom. Spring (April, to be precise) is also when golf lovers flock to Augusta for the Masters Tournament.

    Food Network has made Paula Deen a household name. If you want to know why, stop into her Savannah restaurant, The Lady & Sons, to sample southern cuisine done right. Hint: The buffet is worth unbuttoning your pants for.
