Day trips from atlanta

When people in north Georgia talk about day trips from Atlanta, they often mention a number of places near the city in the mountains. But when asked about day trip destinations for a personal trip, you hear a familiar refrain: "I need to take a day trip," the reply invariably begins, "but I need a place in a hurry". I’ve heard it in conversations in Atlanta and Atlanta in a rush.

PLACE

Howard Finster’s Paradise Gardens located in northwest Georgia is a one-of-a-kind place! Howard Finster was a folk artist who made his home in Summerville. The man who has been referred to as the “grandfather of Southern Folk Art” was recycling materials for art before it was cool. He started his garden in the 40s, and it’s now available for tours. Every year, the garden hosts “Finster Fest” on Memorial Day weekend, where you’ll find southern food, all types of live music, and a whole lot of folk art. Stop by “Sloppy” Floyd State Park while you’re in the area — it’s only 10 minutes away. Distance from Atlanta: 1 hour, 45 minutes

TRIP

Known for being one of the best nearby places to go white water rafting (which you can actually still do during the fall) Columbus has much more to offer than its aquatic attractions and activities. For those who love visiting museums and historical sites, Columbus boasts attractions like Coca-Cola Space Science Center, Historic Westville, The Ma Rainey House & Blues Museum, and more. Plus, outdoor areas like the Columbus Dragonfly Trail and Heritage Park offer beautiful open-air experiences while also serving as nods to the city’s industrial heritage. With a short, straight-forward road trip filled with color-changing trees, a visit to west Georgia may be exactly what you need right now.

Helen is an adorable Germantown nestled in the mountains of North Georgia. This place is ideal for celebrating Oktoberfest in the fall, but it’s honestly a great getaway all throughout fall and winter. There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy throughout your whole trip, from burning some firewood in the cabins to exploring Anna Ruby Falls, and visiting Helen’s kitschy souvenir shops is a must.
