Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Atlanta: Rome (Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum & Myrtle Hill Cemetery), Candler Field Museum (in Williamson) and BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (in Lilburn). It doesn't end there: snap pictures at Jackson Street Bridge.

A taste of Bavaria right in the heart of Georgia's "Historic High Country," Helen houses just 400 residents but hosts over 200 shops that sell everything from handmade sweaters to Christmas ornaments.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: steep yourself in history at Hardman Farm, learn about winemaking at Stonewall Creek Vineyards, and then experience rural life at Mountain Fresh Creamery.
