Georgia On My Mind
GEORGIA ON MY MIND
THE HOME STATE OF THE MASTERS HAS A LOT TO OFFER ANY TRAVELLER, WHETHER IT'S GREAT GOLF, RICH CULTURE, DEEP HISTORY OR REAL WORLD NATURAL BEAUTY.
KNOWN widely throughout the USA as the 'Peach State', Georgia is also plentiful with sweet treats throughout its diverse landscape.
From the craggy Blue Ridge Mountains – part of the Appalachian Mountains – in the north of the state, to the plateau range of the Piedmont, to the coastal plains leading to the Atlantic Ocean in the state's south-east, Georgia boasts a range of geological gems.
For golfers, Georgia is best known as the home of The Masters, with the famed and fabled Augusta National Golf Club proudly housed just two-hours east of the state's capital.
One of the most famous and exclusive courses in the world, Augusta National remains high on most, if not all, golfers bucket lists.
Yet while tens of thousands of golf fans flock to Augusta annually in April for the season's first major, there are other first-class golf and culturally-rich experiences to be had within hours of Magnolia Lane.
We've highlighted four different style Georgian layouts to be celebrated the next time you find yourself in the great Peach State. »
