360-Degree Videos of Famous Places in Georgia

Anna Ruby Falls, Driftwood Beach, Forsyth Park, and Hay House undoubtedly are some of Georgia's most popular destinations.

But photographs can't capture the sound of the water powerfully rushing over the falls, steadily washing onto shore, or gently spraying in the fountain.

The 360-degree videos below offer a virtual way to explore these majestic places until you can visit in person. Click play, and use the arrows in the top left of each video, or drag your cursor to turn around and look up and down to explore the immersive scenes.

Anna Ruby Falls in Helen

One of North Georgia's most-visited waterfalls, Anna Ruby Falls in Helen is a stunning twin waterfall in the Chattahoochee National Forest. It's accessible by a fairly steep half-mile paved trail that starts at the visitor center and ends at the base of the falls. Benches along the trail offer places to rest and observe the scenic area, and all along the trail, visitors will find spring blooming wildflowers, flowering shrubs, and a wide variety of ferns, mosses, and fungi. The falls join to form Smith Creek, which tumbles downhill to Unicoi Lake and then to the Chattahoochee River.

Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island

Located on the north end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood Beach will amaze you with the beautiful driftwood and trees that resemble a scene from another world. The gnarled and weathered trees are left behind from years of erosion. What was once a maritime forest is now a sandy shore lined with weathered tree trunks and branches, creating a sight that's truly unique to the Golden Isles. Driftwood Beach is ideal for a sunny afternoon, a morning picnic, and even stargazing late at night.
