From Columbus to Augusta, Athens to Macon, the charm of Georgia's central cities never ends. Tour stunning examples of antebellum architecture, hear live music in clubs where celebrated musicians got their start, and walk the land that shaped two U.S. presidents. Test your courage on the rapids of the Chattahoochee River and perfect your swing on the golf courses in Lake Country. Along the way, ask the locals where to get the best barbecue and local beer; everyone has their favorites.
