I recently moved to the city of Atlanta and there’s still so much that I haven’t seen. From day trips all around Georgia, right down to exploring my very neighborhood, I’ve created a list of what I’d like to see and where I’d like to go.
Walk the 270-foot swinging suspension bridge over the Toccoa River in Blue Ridge, GA.
Longest swinging bridge east of the Mississippi River (270 feet across)! #toccoariver #swingingbridge #blueridgemountains #wandernorthga #atlantatrails #blueridgega #getoutside #bentonmackayetrail #optoutside #dayhike #lovegeorgia #exploremore #exploregeorgia #adventuretravel #travelgram #blueridgemoments #scenicstates #happytrails #takeahike
Chattahoochee Coffee Company
Not your average coffee shop, this one is located right on the Chattahoochee River. It sounds like a hidden treasure, as you have to enter an apartment complex and ring in for them to open the gates for you. Not many people even know it’s there, but I’ve been dying to spend a day working by the river and sipping coffee here.
Another reason I think it’s special is that it’s located right near where my mom first lived in Atlanta when she was my age. Also, my roommate/best friend used to live in the apartment complex where it’s located.
Hike to see the falls at Tallulah Gorge, which also has a suspension bridge and incredible views. I would love to get here for the autumn season colors!
Those views that literally take your breath away, and make you immensely grateful for this land we’re lucky to call home. An outstanding shot by our ambassador @thetalladventurer from the towering rim of Tallulah… thanks for sharing the beauty, Jonathan! #atlantatrails . . . #trailful #leavenotrace #gastateparks #tallulahgorge #fallleaves #getoutsidegeorgia #wandernorthga #northgeorgia #exploregeorgia #ashevilletrails #choosemountains #gooutsideandplay #blueridgemoments #neverstopexploring #getoutside
Wild Animal Safari
Drive thru safari in Georgia with over 65 types of exotic animals in Pine Mountain!
I mean, a swamp seems like a pretty cool spot to explore!
This one is right near where I live. It’s amazing what you can find right in your backyard.
It’s been nearly 10 years since I’ve hiked Stone Mountain, so I’d say it’s time to go back!
I hope you can take away some ideas from my curated list of beautiful hiking spots, quaint little towns, beautiful scenic spots, and fun activities for day trips from Atlanta. Let me know if there’s any you have already explored or recommend!
