Consider staying in the great state of Georgia for your summer vacation! Georgia is home to nearly 50 state parks and boasts a wide range of vacation spots, from the Blue Ridge Mountains to Tybee Island. Best of all, you’ll be supporting the state’s tourism industry and local Georgia economies.

Here are some great Georgia destinations you may not have considered:

Magnolia Springs State Park:
Known for its 28-acre pristine lake, Magnolia Springs State Park is a great destination for family fun. Canoers can explore lake while bikers can tackle the 3-mile loop and earn members-only shirts. The park was around during the Civil War and has proven a place of interest for history buffs. A variety of accommodations is available at Magnolia Springs, ranging from campsites to cottages.

Little Ocmulgee State Park and Lodge:
Everyone in the family is sure to find some fun at Little Ocmulgee in South Georgia. Little ones can enjoy splashing around in the park’s splash pad and squirting water guns. Golfers can play 18 holes on the Wallace Adams Course. The park also has natural attractions like the 2.6-mile Oak Ridge Trail that meanders through scrub oaks and pines, leading to a boardwalk and a vulture roost. Visitors may stay in the lodge, campsites or cottages.

With the many natural attractions offered in Georgia, your family can find the perfect—and affordable—vacation they’ll treasure for a lifetime.
