Georgia is home to some of the most iconic views in all of the Southeast, and there are outdoor adventures throughout the state for just about anyone. The best way to take it all in is on a road trip from the lush green forests of north Georgia all the way to the unspoiled beaches on the coast.
And, when you’re on a road trip, what you’re driving matters. One-of-a-kind campervans are some of the most fun vehicles for getaways in Georgia because they combine camping with convenience.
Luxury + grit all in one
Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a month’s-long road trip, campervans are the newest innovative form of travel. You have your transportation and lodging combined, which eliminates the stress of a lot of extra packing and gives you the enjoyment to travel adequately.
Convenient, cozy, and reliable, there are multiple advantages to taking a tiny home on wheels to guide your next adventure. These hand-crafted vehicles are carefully constructed using sustainable materials such as solar panels, recycled wood interior, and sustainably sourced sheep’s wool for insulation. From memory foam beds to dinettes and outdoor showers, taking your trip off-grid in the luxury of a camping vehicle is the perfect combination of cozy home amenities and outdoor grit.
Explore with a family of four
Not only for individual nomads constantly on the go or for duos that enjoy exploring the open road together, campervans also can accommodate small families. With more than just a single bed and cooler, many tiny homes on wheels now have the modifications to host an entire family of four or more.
From hideaway bed systems that sleep two in a queen-size bed, to wrap-around dinettes that convert into king-size beds, every inch of space can incorporate living areas that resemble houses and all of their luxuries. Kitchens consolidate counter space and storage, refrigerators are large enough for a week’s worth of food, closets let every traveler store their belongings, and extra seats are made for young adventurers.
As exploring wild terrain becomes more popular, van life makes it possible to combine living spaces and transportation in one. Whether it’s college students touring the country with their pups or small families with kids, a variety of travelers can enjoy van homes.
Pack the van and go
One of the biggest conveniences of a camper van is that your only responsibility as a renter is to map out your journey. If you’d like to explore nature’s most sacred scenery without backpacking miles into the woods, here are some great places to stop on your Georgia getaway.
Cloudland Canyon State Park
Thirsty for waterfalls? Hike Cloudland Canyon’s Waterfalls Trail to view two of Georgia’s most magnificent falls: Hemlock Falls and Cherokee Falls. Also, be sure to check out the West Rim Trail for stunning views of the canyon. In the fall, the canyon comes alive with beautiful colors as far as the eye can see.
Find a climbing partner and explore the massive rock face of Yonah Mountain just outside of the Bavarian-style town of Helen. Yonah’s grassy summit is the perfect place to camp and stargaze on clear summer nights. While you're in the area, be sure to drive the Richard Russell Scenic Highway for the most epic fall views.
Providence Canyon State Park
Just outside of Columbus lies Providence Canyon State Park. Known as Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon,” this park boasts towering sandstone walls that feature vibrant orange and white colors throughout. Exploring down inside the canyon is an adventure like no other in Georgia and is sure to awe the entire family.
Savannah & Tybee Island
With Spanish moss-draped trees shading historic squares, world-famous restaurants, and something beautiful or quirky at every turn, Savannah is always a great place to visit. Up for a fun adventure? Head over to Tybee Island, grab a kayak, camping gear and a friend, and cross the river to Little Tybee Island. This uninhabited nature preserve is a must-see for a fun night of ocean-side bonfires and solitude.
Explore like never before
Whatever your plans may be, a one-of-a-kind campervan is sure to carry you there in style. They're also an ideal way to travel safely, because they are cleaned observing strict COVID-19 safety precautions, and they allow you to get out of the house while still maintaining distance from others. Get outdoors and explore in a way you never have before.
