For those interested in driving tours & walking tours we have that also. Or maybe you are interested into getting back to nature, we have campsites & nature trails to see all types of animals & birds and many of God's creations to look at. From waterfalls to lakes  and great fishing spots.

     There are places to go horseback riding, 4 wheeling or rving. If you like different gardens we have that also.  If you want to pan for gold then head up to http://www.n-georgia.com/dahlonega-gold-museum-historic-site.html Which is where the gold rush started before everyone went west to California.

     If you want to see covered bridges then you are in luck because n Georgia has quite a few but the oldest in that area was built in 1840 and can be found at http://www.n-georgia.com/big-red-oak-creek.htm  If you are into bird watching the contact Ocmulgee Audubon Society when you are in Macon, GA or if you are in Savannah contact http://www.n-georgia.com/ogeechee-audubon-society.html.
