Hiking In Georgia

If you’re looking for a great way to explore the natural beauty of Georgia, hiking is the perfect option. There are plenty of trails to choose from, and most of them are well-maintained and easy to follow. Make sure you wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Georgia can be hot and humid in the summer and weather can change quickly from bright and sunny to a torrential downpour, so dress accordingly. And don’t forget to bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat.

Camping In Georgia

Georgia is a lush region of the country spanning stunning mountaintops to sandy beaches. That green landscape comes with a lot of humidity and rain. Weather that can make or break a camping trip if not properly planned for. Check the weather ahead of time for warnings and be sure to pack extra clothing and foul weather gear in case the rain does come.

With that said, the particulars of any camping adventure can vary dramatically by region and season. Georgia’s mountains are a very different place to pitch a tent than, say, the Okefenokee Swamp. Do some research on the area you wish to camp in and make sure you have the appropriate gear for that specific location.

In general, Georgia is best for camping from late fall through early spring, when the temperatures are milder and there is less chance for rain. Of course, Georgia’s coastal regions can be quite pleasant year-round, while the mountains can be bitterly cold in winter.

Beaches In Georgia

There’s nothing like a day at the beach to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Georgia has miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, and there are plenty of beaches to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a place to sunbathe, swim, or just take a walk on the beach, Georgia has something for you. Georgia’s many islands, such as Tybee, St. Simons, Jekyll, and Cumberland Island are located just off the coast of Georgia, and are popular spots for camping, hiking, and birdwatching.
