Holidays in Georgia​, The Deep South

Glorious, gorgeous and genteel - that's Georgia. This beautiful state has it all: cities, coast, mountains and more, all served up with a large dose of Southern charm. Atlanta does modern America, with a buzzing downtown and a hatful of attractions. Savannah is all lazy gentility, wound through with historic houses and Spanish moss. And elsewhere, Georgia's Great Outdoors puts on a spectacular show, all the way from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Golden Isles.

There's history aplenty on holidays in Georgia. Atlanta is where Margaret Mitchell wrote Gone with the Wind, and while the state capital is all about the 21st century, elsewhere the spirit of mint juleps and hooped skirts lives on. There's sleepy historic towns and graceful antebellum mansions to discover all over the state, as well as enough battlefields, monuments and museums to keep Civil War buffs happy for days.

When you're ready to head out of town for something a bit more outdoorsy, then there's plenty for you to choose from. To the north the mountains beckon and the Appalachian Trail weaves a picturesque trail from Springer Mountain through the Chattahoochee National Forest. There's also great white water rafting here - or if you prefer your water salty, then head to Georgia's 110-mile coastline complete with tranquil nature preserves and enchanting barrier islands.

Back in the city, after a hard days' exploring you can choose to while away the warm evening sitting under an oak tree in one of Savannah's exquisite garden squares, or to hit the night-life in glitzy Atlanta. One thing's for sure though: long after your holiday has come to an end, you'll still have Georgia on your mind.

Energetic Atlanta

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.

Old Dixie

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.

Sultry Savannah

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.
