Travel to Georgia

Travel to Georgia and experience its abundance of southern charm and natural beauty. Trips to Georgia aren't complete until travellers explore picturesque waterfalls, learn about the Civil War, attend fairs and festivals, relax on the sand, shop in antique markets, take in a play, or ride a riverboat.

Georgia was one of the original Thirteen Colonies that revolted against British rule in the American Revolution. In 1861 it seceded from the Union and was one of the original seven Confederate states. Georgia's largest city, Atlanta, is located in north-central Georgia, atop a ridge southeast of the Chattahoochee River. The Atlanta metropolitan area has a population of 5,278,904 (2007 census estimate), though the city proper has around 519,000 people.

Trips to Georgia are normally met with a humid subtropical climate tempered somewhat by occasional polar air masses in the winter. Hot and humid summers are typical, except at the highest elevations. The entire state, including the north Georgia mountains, receives moderate to heavy precipitation in central Georgia to heavy precipitation around the Northeast part of the state. The areas near the Florida/Georgia border, extending from the entire Georgia coastline west to the Florida panhandle, experiences the most subtropical weather, similar to that of Florida: hot, humid summers with frequent afternoon thunderstorms and mild, somewhat drier winters.
