Bridal Veil Falls, Tallulah Falls, GA

Summer is almost here, and if you’re itching for a road trip, these are some great stops! Georgia has so many great state parks that you have to add to your “Must-See” list. With the kids out of school, you can head out to explore our great state- either for a great day trip, or a quick weekend getaway.  Many of the Georgia state parks have areas to camp – in the traditional sense, or with cabins, cottage and more.  We personally want to check out the yurts at Tugaloo State Park (See Below!)
