We decided to be spontaneous and changed our destination the morning of our travels. That may have proven to have caused some bumps in the road, watch the video to see more! Regardless, we enjoyed seeing Savannah and to no surprise at all, needed lots more time to see it all! We will definitely be back, maybe even for several weeks! We enjoyed the history, the homes, and the food! Since we plan to return, we would love to hear your Savannah stories and recommendations for our next trip!
On our Georgia trip, we made sure to head over to the Chattahoochee Nature Centernter in Roswell, GA. I had been when I was younger, but didn’t know much about it recently. Boy did it change! I was super impressed with everything they had to offer and we weren’t even able to go on a themed day. They have themed days relating back to the time of year or addressing specific topics, which is great for those looking for some bonus add-ons to your curriculum! I highly recommend stopping by if you’re local or in the area traveling! We really enjoyed this as a field trip because it pairs nature with education, which I love!
It’s been a VERY long time since I have been to Autrey Mill Nature Preserve in Georgia, which is exactly why I decided to make the trip over there. Between hiking, exploring the historic village buildings, checking out the old mill and mine locations, and learning about the animal exhibits, one could definitely spend a great afternoon or entire day here! Everyone was extremely nice and helpful, and the camps they offer seem really interesting! If you’re in Georgia, this would be a great day trip!

While on our Georgia trip, we headed over to Sawnee a few times to meet up with my mom for a mid-day hike. Being in Florida, we rarely see mountains, so we loved hiking this one while we were in town! We really enjoyed exploring the mountain and seeing most of North Georgia from the Indian Seats. We never had time to park across the street in the new parking lot, but that trail is supposedly even longer. That would be a great option for those looking for a longer distance. I also want to mention that there’s a small playground near the parking lot, which is a nice bonus for those with kids! Here’s a video from our time at Sawnee! We hope you enjoy!

I’m not sure if people still call it “the ATL” anymore or if that’s a thing of the past. Growing up there, we always giggled at that reference as we just called it “Atlanta”…easy enough right? We were going to be in Georgia on a trip and decided to head into Atlanta for a quick day trip. We had only been to Fernbank once for a school dance, and knowing we have a dinosaur-loving little boy, we figured no trip was complete without a visit to Fernbank Museum of Natural History! So we hit the road and headed over! If you’ve never been to Fernbank or are just traveling through with some time to kill, I HIGHLY recommend this Museum for young and old alike!
