Top Reasons to Go

Callaway Gardens Resort and Preserve: 14,000 acres of gardens and parkland make this the raison d'ĂȘtre for visiting Pine Mountain. In spring the rhododendrons and wild azaleas take your breath away.

Thomasville plantations: Nowhere is the lore of the Deep South better understood than in and around the plantations of Thomasville. Because many have been restored as country inns or are open to the public, they are almost like living museums.

FDR's Little White House: The cottage where President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stayed while taking in the healing waters of Warm Springs looks much as it did in his day. You can even see the pools where he was treated for polio.

Jimmy Carter's home town: President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter still live in Plains, Georgia, and still worship at the Maranatha Baptist Church. There are a number of museums and historic sites in Plains dedicated to Carter's legacy.
