Outdoor Adventure in Georgia

Wherever your travels take you in the state of Georgia, you'll find urban parks and undeveloped countryside ready to explore on foot—or on bicycle, or in a kayak or boat. With terrain including mountains, swamps, lakes, and the ocean, the varied landscapes offer a choice of escapes and adventures for boaters, hikers, golfers, and everyone who just enjoys a day in the sunshine.

Outdoor Adventures Along the Georgia Coast
Coastal Georgia offers beaches to explore, plus lots of options for fishing the many lakes and rivers. Savannah's namesake river offers good fishing, as does Longdale Pond in Valdosta, along with many other rivers.

If you can tear yourself away from the water, spend a day outdoors on the golf greens at Stone Creek Golf Club in Valdosta or The Lakes Golf Course at Laura S Walker in Waycross. You can also enjoy a day strolling the fragrant grounds of the Thomasville Rose Garden, with its more than 500 rosebushes, or hike the Waycross State Forest.

Outdoor Adventures in Atlanta and North Georgia
In Atlanta, outdoor adventure starts at Piedmont Park, where there are miles of paths to walk, bike, or skate. The park's lake is stocked for fishing, with catfish, bream, crappie, and large mouth bass. There are playgrounds for kids to burn off energy. Be sure to also visit Centennial Olympic Park to play in the interactive fountain.

The outdoor adventures are slightly more rugged at Stone Mountain Park, just outside Atlanta. Take a sky ride to the summit, or challenge yourself on the walls and ropes course at Camp Highland Outpost. You can also try the treetop Sky hike or cross rope bridges at the Geyser Tower. There are 15 miles of trails to simply enjoy the natural setting. During the winter months, Stone Mountain is the home of Snow Mountain, where you can tube down the big hill.

Enjoy the outdoors in Atlanta by biking or walking the Atlanta BeltLine, an urban trail system that covers 33 miles. There are also three golf courses an easy drive from Atlanta, River Pines Golf, Towne Lake Hills, and The Golf Club at Bradshaw Farm.

Outdoor Adventures in Central Georgia
Like the rest of Georgia, Central Georgia is filled with lakes, golf courses, and state parks offering a variety of outdoor adventures. In Macon, Lake Tobesofkee Recreation Area's parks and beaches welcome you to picnic on shore and swim in the pristine waters. You can also enjoy fishing or boating here. Want to explore on foot? Swainsboro and Columbus are known for their hiking trails.

Trails in Franklin D Roosevelt State Park wend through pine forests; make your way on foot or stop at the stables to enjoy traveling on horseback. The park is near Warm Springs, where you can also spend a pleasant day exploring the grounds of Callaway Gardens. Leave time for golf at Bowden Golf Course.

Outdoor Adventures in South Georgia
The water turns swampy in South Georgia, offering unique adventures. The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge lets you explore by boat, kayak, or boardwalk trail.
