With spring just around the corner, many Georgians are beginning to think ahead to warmer weather and weekend escapes. The newly published “2014 Guide to Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites” is a handy resource for planning a spring break, summer vacation or family reunion. The free booklet is filled with tips on the best hiking trails, fishing spots, wedding venues and accommodations. It also includes Georgia’s newest state park, Don Carter, which open last year on Lake Lanier.
Produced annually by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the guide features colorful photos that make for a scenic “armchair tour” of the Peach State. For a free copy, call 1-800-864-7275 or stop by any Georgia State Park or State Historic Site. On online version can be found on GeorgiaStateParks.org.
