White Oak Pastures is a great trip within the state. The Harris family has tended cattle on the southwest Georgia farm for five generations. White Oak prides itself on its treatment of animals, land and employees. After learning about the cattle and the farm-to-table process, you can spend the night in one of their wooden cabins and join the employees for a hearty meal.

Just a short drive away, Providence Canyon and Kolomoki Mounds State Park are exciting day trips filled with hiking and exploration.

Set on 30 acres of countryside outside of Dublin, Dublin Farm features cozy rooms inside the bed and breakfast, an outdoor pool, lounge area and a restaurant. Each guest suite features luxurious bedding, flat-screen televisions and private baths. The farm is also equipped with free WiFi.

One of the biggest treats at Dublin Farm is dining on a multi-course Italian feast at Ristorante da Maria, where all the food is cooked by Italian-born chef Maria Runggaldier. “I’m really proud to present people with my authentic Italian cooking,” she explains. “It’s so fresh and made from scratch.” While her dishes hail from her home country, many of the ingredients used to create them — including beef, peaches, blueberries, and heritage poultry — are grown in Georgia. And guests can pair their pasta (all hand made by Runggaldier) with Italian wines to round out the experience — all part of living la dolce vita. “I cook and people are happy,” says Runggaldier, who also shares her secrets in cooking classes throughout the year.
