Other Places to Visit
Calaway Gardens (see separate tip)
Warm Springs (Franklin D. Roosevelt built his home, Little White House, here and it's open to the public)
Stone Mountain Park (Riverboat, plantations, and the largest bas-relief sculpture)
The Golden Isles are the barrier islands, and they are this because of the color of their sands. Eight of them are still largely unspoiled. Four (Tybee, St. Simons, Jekyll, and Sea) are resorts, outfitted with golf courses and five-star hotels.
Cumberland is the largest and wildest with wild horses roaming there.
African Americans called Gullahs have almost disappeared from the barrier islands off the coast because of the development of resorts. The Gullahs used to work on the rice plantations. After the Civil War, they created their own society. African Culture lives on in the Gullahs' crafts such as handwoven baskets.

Lake Chehow has boardwalks, walking and biking trails, and lots of opportunities to see wonderful wildlife.
