Places to Visit in Georgia After Enjoying Your Medicine
Georgia has it all: coastal beaches, mountains, and miles of countryside. The southeastern state, known for pink, plump peaches, is home to the Savannah Historic District, Martin Luther King National Historic Site, Chattahoochee National Forest, Callaway Gardens, and Jekyll Island. Not to mention the city of Atlanta, which is one of America’s most notable culture-driven cities, filled with endless opportunities for a.m. and p.m. entertainment. The historic Civil Rights region is famous for its subtropical climate of hot summers and mild winters. With so much to do indoors and outdoors, Georgia is the perfect stomping ground for excitement statewide, so why not turn a trip to the dispensary into a day, or even weekend, of fun at some of Georgia’s best spots.
The Georgia State capital is the “Gate City of the New South” in all ways. The historic Civil Rights city boasts the Atlanta Beltline, a 22-mile railway loop around the city, a street art tour, botanical gardens, a famous aquarium, Fox Theatre, and Ponce City Market; not to mention the Center for Civil Rights. As for nightlife, Atlanta is home to one of the most vibrant music scenes, with top artists born and raised in this Georgia metropolis including Ludacris, the Black Crowes, TLC, T.I., Indigo Girls, Usher, John Mayer, Ciara, Sugarland, and the great Ray Charles. It's easy to get a groove on at some of the most famous music bars in the area, including Terminal West, a refurbished 1930's factory, and Variety Playhouse, a Little Five Points music staple.
Savannah Historic District
Precisely preserved, Civil War town gives off a southern Georgia feel like no other area. Whether walking the riverfront on a hot summer day or pursuing one of the historic districts during the rain, locals, and visitors of the city also enjoy a plethora of parks and squares adorned with an array of Georgia fauna and flora. There is no doubt this step back into the 1800's does not leave a lasting impression on all who walk within the unique square mile.
Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site
There is no place like the birthplace and stomping grounds of the man who would change the face of Civil Rights. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is Atlanta’s most visited tourist attraction, with millions flocking to see where one of the most famous, if not the most notable, social activists started his world-changing 1960's journey in Georgia’s famous city. Walking through the “I Have a Dream,” World Peace Garden on site is an unforgettable stroll.
