Located in Eastern Georgia, Savannah sits alongside the Atlantic Ocean and is separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River. The city is rich in history, it has been involved in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the only city that General Richard Sherman spared on his famous “March to the Sea”. Savannah is well known for their beautiful oak trees and the cobblestone streets. This city has many attractions and is a great place for history buffs or those seeking adventure. But be warned, Savannah is on the list of most haunted cities in the United States.
A public aquarium located in the heart of Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the United States. The aquarium was once the largest in the world, it houses thousands of animals which are displayed throughout five different exhibits. They periodically hold exclusive exhibits, a few years back they had an exhibit that featured the Titanic. This is one of the place that you must visit if you find yourself in Atlanta.
3. Rock City
You may have seen bright red bird houses with roofs that read “See Rock City”. These originated in 1935 when Clark Byers painted over 900 barn roofs with this same slogan on them. He did so to advertise the beautiful Rock City. Located on top of Lookout Mountain, Rock City has a variety of unique rock formations. Also, Lover’s Leap is located at the very top it is claimed that from here you can see seven neighboring states.
The iconic drink that is known all around the world finally has a museum that showcases its full history. The first location was built in 1990, but was relocated in 2007. At the beginning of the tour, you are brought into a room filled with Coke memorabilia and they tell you stories all about the history of Coca-Cola. There are different rooms you are able to visit, and they even have a short 4-D film. At the end of it all, there more than 100 different international Coca-Cola beverages. Ticket prices are very reasonably priced making it an attraction for the whole family. Don’t forget, “try the Beverly.”
Located in Piedmont Park beside Atlanta, the Botanical Gardens span through 30 acres. There are many small exhibits, each different from the previous one. They all have set landscapes and a variety of different plants. It is also home to a 600-foot-long Canopy Walk that hangs 40 feet in the air. My personal favorite exhibit is one that is only held for a short period of time. From February 11th-April 9th, Orchid Daze is held, this is the largest Orchid center in the United States.
