3. Canopy Tour

Fly through the treetops and see Georgia from a bird’s eye view with a zipline canopy tour. Embrace your adventurous side on the zipline at North Georgia Canopy Tours, or play a round of Disc Golf, go Geocashing, play a round of cornhole or challenge someone to a game of Tetherball.

6. Ride the Canal

Hop on board a boat and make your way down the Augusta Canal. Take one of the Petersburg Boat Tours with a tour type for everyone. Learn about the Civil War, see the sunset, or take a moonlit cruise full of music and performances. No matter what appeals to you there’s a cruise down the canal for you to enjoy.

Don’t be fooled by the name - Swamp Gravy isn’t southern cooking; it’s the official folk-life play of Georgia. See a show that blends southern culture with rich storytelling that explores family relationships and community values.
