Plantations to Parks, Folk Life to Farms – Get off the highway and into the countryside, where the land spreads out and the roads roll into small towns, each of which offers its own unique charms and intriguing history. You’ll discover an outdoor paradise, where the lakes teem with fish; the woodlands are alive with wildlife and rivers flow steadily across the landscape. Tour plantations and historic farms. Relive our historic past. Visit Georgia’s Plantation Trace.
