            If you and your family want to plan a vacation but can’t decide where to go, here are five popular destinations in the state of Georgia.
Atlanta is our state’s capital, and there is so much to do there! All of Georgia’s professional sports teams, the Atlanta Hawks, the Atlanta Braves, and the Atlanta Falcons, can be seen here. If you like the arts, you can visit the High Museum of Art, Fox Theatre, and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Activities to do with the whole family include Six Flags Over Georgia, an amusement park, Zoo Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, and Imagine It!-the children’s museum of Atlanta. I would also recommend going to Stone Mountain Park where you can climb to the top of Stone Mountain, go on a ropes course, or see a laser show on the side of the mountain.
What is considered “Georgia’s Best Kept Secret?” Lake Oconee! It is located about an hour east of Atlanta. It boasts excellent fishing, boating, and water sports. There are also seven amazing golf courses. Of course, I wouldn’t go when the Masters Golf Tournament is in the nearby town of Augusta because this little town starts to get a little crowded!
         To get to Cumberland Island, you have to board a ferry, but when you get there, you will see the best unspoiled scenery that nature has to offer! There is so much plant life, like giant live oaks, Spanish moss, and palmettos, and wildlife, like turkey, deer, and alligators. There are many historical aspects, such as the ruins of Revolutionary War hero Nathaniel Greene’s home. There are also gorgeous beaches where wild horses roam. Camping on the island is so much fun, and so is everything else!
The North Georgia Mountains include a variety of cities, including Ellijay, Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Helen, and a variety of things to do. Cabin camping is a popular lodging choice and is available year-round. Helen is known for tubing on the Chattahoochee River and its German-style shops. You could also hike the Appalachian Trail that starts in Springer Mountain, Georgia and ends in Maine. These mountains are a truly enchanting and calming region.
The last, and my personal favorite, vacation spot is Savannah! This is where Juliette 
Visiting Juliette Gordon Low's Birthplace
Gordon Low’s Birthplace and Girl Scout’s First Headquarters are located. I love walking down the cobblestone street and window shopping next to the Savannah River on River Street. It is a city full of history, so you might want to go on a tour of the city, and it is also a city full of ghosts, and a ghost tour is a great way to go ghost hunting. I absolutely love this city because there is so much to do!
Georgia is full of amazing places to go and see, but these are just a few of them. I would highly encourage you to go on a vacation with your family to go through new experiences and to get closer to the ones you love. Have fun and happy travels!!! :)
