There's a whole heap of things to do in Atlanta. You can visit the world's biggest aquarium, with over 100,000 marine animals; find out all about Atlanta's famous home brew at the World of Coca-Cola; splash about in the 251 water fountains of Centennial Park; go behind the scenes at CNN; ride the cable car across Stone Mountain Park; and, of course, shop till you drop.
Time spent following the 100-mile Antebellum Trail puts you straight onto the set of Gone with the Wind. The trail snakes through the places that escaped General Sherman's famous March to the Sea at the end of the Civil War, and takes in towns alive with gorgeous antebellum architecture like Athens and Madison, as well as several old plantation houses.
The Golden Isles
Just off the coast at Brunswick are four picturesque barrier islands, where pristine stretches of marshland, punctuated by small islands called 'hammocks', make for the perfect seaside experience on Georgia USA holidays. While you're here, make sure to fit in a visit to the Okefenokee Swamp - a preserved backwater swamp alive with wildlife including alligators.
With one of the largest Historic Districts in the country, Savannah is the perfect place to soak up the spirit of the Old South. Oak trees festooned with Spanish moss cluster in squares lined by some of the best preserved and most exquisite 18th and 19th-century buildings you'll find anywhere - some of which you can see from the inside, too.
The Dream Lives On
Atlanta's 'Sweet Auburn' is where civil rights leader Martin Luther King lived and is buried alongside his wife Coretta Scott King. You can tour the home where King was born and the church where three generations of the family preached, as well as visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Change - dedicated to King's beliefs and the civil rights struggle.
