ATLANTA — With spring around the corner, many Georgians are thinking ahead to warmer weather and weekend escapes.
The newly published “2016 Guide to Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites” is a resource for planning a spring break, summer vacation or family reunion. The free booklet is filled with tips on hiking trails, fishing spots, wedding venues and accommodations.
It also includes new accommodations, such as yurts at Sweetwater Creek State Park near Atlanta and sportsman’s cabins at Laura S. Walker State Park near Waycross.
Produced annually by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the travel guide features photos that make for a scenic “armchair tour” of the Peach State. For a free copy, call 1-800-864-7275 or stop by any Georgia state park or historic site.
