What to See When You RV - Georgia Edition

Posted on March 28, 2018

Some of the most spectacular vistas in the Peach State can be seen during a road trip to behold the fall foliage. Appreciate the ultimate in autumn flora journeying from Cloudland Canyon State Park in Rising Town, Georgia, where the most enchanting views will astound you. Then travel on to Amicalola Falls State Park in Dawsonville and hike to an overlook where the mind-blowing fall colors of oranges and reds await you. Surround yourself with splendor as you drive along Blue Ridge Parkway, then on to Vogel State Park in Blairsville and become mesmerized by the stunning colors of fall once again.

Savannah, the oldest city in Georgia, is a treasure itself. Its boundless attractions will require a busy itinerary, but that is why RV travel is so wonderful. You can take your time and plan visits to fit your schedule. The historic district offers the visitor a glimpse of what Antebellum Savannah was like. If you visit during the summer months, be prepared for unbelievable humidity, but you will be so enthralled with your surroundings that it will not matter. Besides, you can hail an air-conditioned tour bus even as you are strolling along the streets.

Shops, that were once warehouses, line the Savannah River and give visitors a chance to amble along quaint, cobblestone streets. See the oldest building in Savannah, Wormsloe Estate, where actors, dressed in period costumes, delight visitors during scheduled events. A short 20 minutes away is Tybee Island for relaxing on the beach and enjoying a refreshing wind-down after a hectic city visit. Riverboat cruises provide dinner and entertainment for a romantic interlude. Historic sights, shopping, lounging in the park, swimming, and kayaking are all fun activities to be enjoyed in Savannah.

Of course, a trip to Georgia would not be complete without a visit to Atlanta. Unveiled history, outdoor wonders, culture, and the many family-friendly points of interest will keep the visitor busy. Atlanta is a bustling film town. You can visit movie and television locations with a guide who will fascinate you with an insider’s look into the making of the shows. Walk or bike the 22-mile of trails, walkways, and parks of the Atlanta Beltline and feel like a native instead of a tourist. Tour the city by bicycle, Segway or open-air smart cars to get a real feel for local neighborhoods. The Center for Civil and Human Rights, where you can have hands-on interaction with the history of the Civil Rights Movement, is not to be missed. RVs are welcome in the area as motorhomes will find luxury resort-type accommodations to appeal to the most sophisticated traveler. Either a Class A motorhome or a Class C motorhome will make you feel right at home.

Some of the best mountain bike trails in Georgia are Blankets Creek in the Atlanta area, Bear Creek in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Chicopee Woods in Northeast Georgia. So if you are up for it, load up your gear in a Class A toy hauler or an RUV (Recreational Utility Vehicle), and take on the challenge. A motorhome is the perfect vacation transport for such as this. Either a gas RV or a diesel RV can make the trip enjoyable.
