Georgia Guidestones

Called America's Stonehenge, these stones mark the spot believed to be the center of the universe by the Cherokee Indians.

Reviewed By Valorie C - Easley, South Carolina

We stopped here since we were near for another reason. It's not really a "destination" sort of place, since you can see/experience it fully in less than a half hour. It is free, and it is very interesting. It's refreshing to see the "be good" concept inspired by the creators of these guidestones, especially amid today's tension.

Watson Mill Bridge State Park

Reviewed By trivial_matter - Smyrna, GA

What a wonderful place to do all sorts of activities. Ride horses? They have it. Like to splash around in the water? Plenty of that. Hiker? Yelp, got that as well. History? Got you covered. The bridge and waterfall is wonderful and so refreshing on a summer or warm day.

Calhoun Falls State Park

Reviewed By Joseph D - Sanford, Florida

This is kind of out of the way to get to, this State Park is one of the nicest parks we have visited in the South. Very large sites, very quite, very clean, and nice restrooms. The best of all was the views at night and in the morning.

The funny thing is, we did not have many bugs for the time of year that we visited, which was mid Oct 2016. The check in was easy, camp host were great.

I'll say it again, we really loved the view, and the peace and quite. I wish we booked more days. We only had a 3 week vacation and which we covered 3300 miles and 9 places... So next time we'll know to stay longer. 2 Thumbs up and 5 star ratings

I almost forgot the most important part, this is a pet friendly park.

This day trip was some of the most fun we have ever had with our kids. Natalie & Nathan are experienced and have a high standard for safety. Ziplines are not for the faint of heart & I'm not a fan of heights, but they...MoreWe had an awesome time with y'all! It was great getting to know you and your family. Look forward to seeing you this spring

Just on my way to Atlanta I came by a little town with these gorgeous little small shops. It looks like I landed in the middle of the Pickers tv. Walked around for a bit, they have so much to look, and buy of course. Really a hidden gem, this place. Check it out for yourself!

Richard B. Russell State Park

Reviewed By Dorothy P

We've stayed in this park before in our RV and loved it. The golf course is great. This time we needed accommodation for 4 and chose a cottage. Good decision! Very comfortable, 2 bedrooms each with a bathroom, TV with cable, good wifi, a kitchen with everything required, heat and air conditioning. The view of the lake from the screened porch was so relaxing! Very happy we stayed here.

Elberton Granite Museum

Reviewed By ampanmangal - Georgia

It is a small museum dedicated to granite. It was very informative and well paced. The volunteer at the museum worked in the granite industry for 40 years before retiring. The free granite sample was fun! I had no idea how many kinds of granite are in existence.

Elbert Theatre

The Elbert Theatre opened as a movie palace in 1940 and experienced many growing pains to get to where it is today. Since 2001 the facility has been operating as a live community theatre venue, concert space, movie theater and children's events venue.

This is an excellent place to take the family for movies. The projection and sound equipment are excellent. The prices for admission and concessions are reasonable.

Jerry Kotal's Fishing Guide Service

Reviewed By Ken C

My family went on a charter with Jerry Kotal in late October 2017. He showed us some hotspots on Lake Russell in an area we wanted to get to know better. We tore up the spotted bass, and got into some stripers, perch and catfish. Jerry is a true gentleman. I recommend him to anyone wanting a guide on Russell, Hartwell or Clarks Hill.

Due to budget cuts, this is no longer a state park and is not regularly staffed. The campground is open seasonally for self-registration. There is a boat ramp and fishing pier.
