26. The ride to Chattanooga is an hour and a half up I-75 North, and feels almost as much of a breeze as you get when you’re high above town, gazing out from Lookout Mountain, down on Main Street grabbing pizza or beer, or crossing over the Tennessee River on the walkable Riverpark bridge.
27. Check out the tallest cascading waterfall in Georgia at Amicalola Falls State Park. It’s a one-hour, exceptionally twisty journey, so designate your driver with care. You know, that friend who never sweats it.
28. It might take less than an hour for you to reach Barnsley Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Make the most out of that extra earned time by mountain-biking, paintballing and golfing on a championship course.
29. You might feel St. Elmo’s Fire burning in you when you get to the top of Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest mountain. The observation deck is 5k feet above sea level, and offers views of Georgia’s four nearby states. Plus you can get country snacks like hot boiled peanuts at local grocers down on the roadway.
