1. Surprise your sweetheart with a romantic mountain getaway
No matter what time of year it is, a mountain getaway always tops our list of romantic things to do in Georgia. In the summer, escape the heat to the cooler temperatures and cascading waterfalls of the mountains. Or plan a getaway during fall to experience the colorful foliage at its height. When winter comes, there are few things more romantic than lighting a fire and snuggling on the couch while snow falls outside.
Where To Stay: The Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast
Minutes from downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, the lovely Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast awaits your arrival in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. From its swimming pool to its lush green grounds, this inn is the perfect place to enjoy a cool mountain getaway during the summer. It’s also near several popular attractions like the Ruby Falls, Incline Railway, and the Rock City Gardens.
2. See the wild horses at the Cumberland Island National Seashore
If you’ve ever dreamt of riding horses on the beach, you need to see the wild horses roam the Cumberland Island National Seashore. These majestic animals are descendants of the Carnegie stable horses. While they graze all over, they are known to hang out near the Dungeness Ruins.
Where To Stay Near The Cumberland Island National Seashore
Not far from the ferry to the National Seashore, sits the charming Spencer House Inn Bed & Breakfast in the heart of St. Marys Historic District. The innkeepers will take care of your ferry reservation and send you off with a delicious lunch to enjoy after you’ve explored the Cumberland Island National Seashore. Another lodging near the seashore is the elegant Greyfield Inn Bed and Breakfast on Cumberland Island, Georgia. Staying at this impressive Carnegie mansion is like stepping back in time. Relax on its wide veranda or under its large oak trees, both signature details of a true Southern mansion. Choose from one of its 16 rooms and enjoy a complimentary island outing with the inn’s very own naturalist.
