Georgia encompasses two Souths—the Old South of Savannah with its elegant homes, planned squares, and Spanish moss-draped live oaks, and the New South of Atlanta, a bustling high-rise metropolis with enough to keep visitors busy for weeks. For white-columned mansions and romantic visions of the past, look no further than central Georgia. One of the most popular Civil War battlefields is in northern Georgia. There's coastline here, too, with lush barrier islands stretching all the way to Florida.
