    The wonderland of the Okefenokee is a significant part of America's heritage, a beautifully preserved segment of what was here when America began.  Headwaters of the Suwannee and St. Mary's Rivers, Okefenokee is a National Wildlife Refuge which covers nearly a half million acres. Okefenokee Swamp Park is a convenient point of entry and a magnificent show-window for the "Land of the Trembling Earth."  Each year thousands of people explore Georgia's Natural Wonder..

    Mother nature has been kind to Georgia. Her glorious presence is in the sights, flavors and aromas of georgia's bountiful crops.
    It is seen in the delicate blossoms that burst from the peach trees.
    It is smelled in the aromatic peanut fields of
    Plains.

    Year round festivals from the spring frolic in March, to a Victorian Christmas in december.
    In the southern town of Tifton modeled after a 19th century farm and village, with Lumber Mills, a nostalgic print shop, a Dogrot Cbin, and Victorian Homes, Agrirama is noted for its living history appeal.

    You must go to Macon and take in a Macon Braves game. 2002 is the last season you can catch them in Macon before they move to Rome. It is a chance to see the baby Braves in single A. I saw Andruw Jones(in picture 1995 season), John Rocker, Wes Helms and Rafeal Furcal play in Macon. Luther Williams Field has played host to Pete Rose and Babe Ruth. Even if you are not a baseball fan you will love the Macon Braves game. Tickets are only $6.00 general admission!! Call 478-745-8943 for ticket information or e-mail macon.braves@turner.com

    The light house at St Simmons Island.St Simmons is a few min drive . Very well worth the trip.Simons Light
    St. Simons Island, Georgia
    Located just east of Brunswick, Georgia, St. Simons Light marks the entrance to St. Simons Sound. The original tower of 1811 was destroyed by Confederates and was replaced by the present tower in 1872. Malaria plagued the work crews and later the keepers until nearby stagnant ponds were drained. The 104 foot tower still has the original third-order fresnel lens and Victorian keeper's quarters.

    Cumberland Island National...

    by ladyfisher Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cumberland Island National Seashore is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia, offering guests over 17 miles of secluded white, sandy beaches. Wild horses and other island wildlife roam freely throughout the ruins and along the beach. Glimpses of the Carnegie lifestyle can be easily imagined throughout the ruins of Dungeness, abandoned luxury vehicles, Plum Orchard, and Greyfield Inn.
    The island is a complex ecological system of interdependent animal and plant communities. A system of foredunes protects the interdune meadow and shrub thickets.
    A canopy of live oak trees stretches out beyond the back dunes that provide protection from the salt spray.In the central and northern sections of the island, pine trees tower over mixed hardwood forests. On the western side of the island, saltwater marshes pulse with the tidal flow.The saltwater marshes support large populations of fish, shellfish, plants, and bird life. They also act as nurseries for the variety of vegetation found on the island. Cradled in the branches of the maritime forest, resurrection ferns spring up above the draped Spanish moss to comfort the lives of such birds as painted buntings, summer tanagers, cardinals, pileated woodpeckers, yellow-throated warblers, and Carolina wrens. Deeper in the forests you may catch a glimpse of the island's numerous whitetail deer, raccoons, bull alligators, and armadillos. On the beach, you can watch shorebirds such as sandpipers, sea gulls, and osprey hunt for their latest meal. Loggerhead turtles have chosen the deserted beaches of Cumberland to come ashore and lay their eggs.

    Plum Orchard is an 1898 Georgian Revival-style mansion built for Carnegie's son and his wife, and was donated to the National Park Foundation in 1971. Plum Orchard still remains an interesting focal point on the island. Greyfield Inn was built in 1901 and remains in the Carnegie family. In the 1960s, Greyfield was opened as an inn and furnished as it was at the turn of the century. Enjoy a luxurious stay as you walk the grounds, have a gourmet picnic under the oaks, learn from the Greyfield naturalist about the island, and dine by candlelight as the sun is setting. Greyfield Inn was selected by Kellogg's, in 1999, as a Country Inn Specialty Cereal known as the ' Greyfield Inn Blend ' .
    In the 1996 edition of Frommer's Best Beach Vacations: Carolinas and Georgia: The 17 miles of undeveloped national seashore of Cumberland Island has been rated A+ for beaches and sand quality.

    A savy sence of style mingled with a quirky sense of humor. Savannah is one of those places where life is not meant to be merely lived, but savored.

    The eastern continental divide crosses through here. This is the dividing line between water flowing toward the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico.
