The Ultimate Travel Guide to Georgia or Everything to Eat and Drink When Traveling Around Georgia

All roads eventually lead to and from Atlanta in the South, and in some cases the world. After all, Atlanta does feature the world’s busiest airport at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Three major Interstates (I-75, I-85, and I-20) connect in the heart of the city, allowing people to travel to destinations throughout the region, and beyond. Then there’s I-285 (aka the Perimeter) that provides travelers the option to bypass driving through Atlanta and its congestion altogether.

With access to a bustling airport and highways leading to various locales throughout Georgia and the South, Atlantans can easily plan weekend trips to the North Georgia mountains or south to cities like Savannah and Macon, or pile into the car for a week at the beach just a few hours away.

Eater compiled this handy guide to travel destinations around Georgia (and Alabama) filled with the best bets for food at area gas stations, chef-recommended restaurants, dining maps in other Georgia cities, where to eat after hiking in the mountains, and even which farms are best for picking peaches and apples.
