Frequently asked questions

Every state and city has its little quirks and Georgia is no exception. The first thing you need to know is that there’s a European country called Georgia, so be sure you’re researching the right place before you go too far down that rabbit hole. Another thing you should know is that things don’t necessarily make sense to out-of-towners, like the fact that there are 70 roads called Peachtree in Atlanta, but that’s part of the fun of experiencing Georgia for the first time. It was also the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr.


Your appetite! Georgians are generous when it comes to meals (and hospitality), so be prepared for big portions of everything. In terms of a packing list, it will depend on the time of year you plan to travel, but comfortable shoes are a must as you’re likely to do a lot of walking in Georgia.


Savannah is a charming coastal city with cobblestone streets, rich culinary culture, horse-drawn carriages and historical landmarks, while Atlanta offers cosmopolitan city vibes with a southern heart. As Georgia’s capital, Atlanta is steeped in history but there’s a buzz to the city that makes it exciting and elegant at the same time. Tybee Island, just 20-minutes from Savannah, is ideal for water sports and outdoor activities.

It depends on your definition of pretty! If you’re a sucker for cosmopolitan life, Atlanta delivers in spades while Georgia’s Golden Isles (St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island and Little St. Simons Island) are a popular pit-stop for sunseekers. Savannah is a historic beauty while Blue Ridge Mountains is a dream destination for nature enthusiasts keen to camp, kayak and go fishing.


It depends, if you’re here for water-based activities and don’t mind the heat, high season stretches from March to August. If however, you’re keen to explore the city when the temperature is a little more mild and the crowds have subsided, aim for the shoulder season from September to November.


Pay tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. at his former home, picnic in Centennial Olympic Park, check out the Georgia Aquarium, spike the heart rate with a trip to Six Flags White Water park, visit the High Museum of Art, spend a day rafting, kayaking or tubing along the Chattahoochee River (also known as the Hooch), take a self-guided movie and television tour and see places from Stranger Things, Ozark, Forest Gump and parts of The Hunger Games, to name a few. Eat your bodyweight in shrimp and grits, mouth-watering slow-cooked meat and fried chicken, sip from the source at one of the state’s many craft breweries that are popping up like mushrooms after a storm, and that’s just the beginning.
