It’s not every day you can wake up to a whale shark watching you. OK, so he probably isn’t watching you, but you could watch him all night long if you want during a sleepover at the Georgia Aquarium. Enjoy the aquarium without the crowds and get a personal tour of the different habitats.
Sleep on a private island at Reed Bingham State Park
Private islands are usually reserved for the rich and famous, but campers with a sense of adventure can paddle to their own personal retreat. Reed Bingham State Park in Adel has a tiny island in the middle of its 375-acre lake. With just a 15-minute paddle, campers will find picnic tables, a fire pit and total privacy. No canoe? No problem. The park rents both canoes and kayaks.
Sleep in a train car in Folkston
Beside the railroad tracks in Folkston stands a renovated train car outfitted as the ultimate sleepover spot for train fans. Railroad enthusiasts love the frequent trains that pass through town and gather to watch them go by at the Folkston Funnel Platform. Retire for the night in the FLS Caboose at the Roadmasters Lodge, and you can count trains instead of sheep as you drift off to dreamland.
