Book Description

Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from Atlanta is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a two-hour drive of Atlanta.

Discover Georgia’s peaks and valleys: Scenic little towns, majestic mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and rivers are not far from the city.  
Turn up the volume: Head to Athens where an incredible mixture of Victorian architecture and beautiful gardens is juxtaposed against a trendy downtown with hip shops and galleries and a vibrant music scene.
Soak up some history: Spend a day in one of Georgia’s historic towns––you’ll be charmed by both the towns and the people who live there.
