9 Fun Things to Do in Georgia During the Spring

Is Georgia on your mind? Spring is a great time to visit the state; whether it’s checking on the big-city life in Atlanta, unwinding on the coast, or hiking through the gorgeous mountains. There is an unending list of fun things to do in Georgia — especially during spring. Add these nine activities to your itinerary.

1. Relax on the Beach

Georgia has some of the most interesting beaches in the United States, each with its own identity and attractions. The town of Brunswick is home to four popular barrier islands collectively called the Golden Isles: Sea Island, St. Simons Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. Between them, everything from golfing and shopping to deep-sea fishing can be found.

For the animal enthusiast; Tybee Island, just outside of Savannah is a great place to go on a dolphin tour, while Cumberland Island is well-known for its wild horses.

2. Stop and See the Daffodils

It may seem slightly odd to trek to trek to one place just to see daffodils, but it’s one of the most spectacular things to do in Georgia. Gibbs Garden in Ball Ground, north of Atlanta, offers the country’s largest display of this flower, spread over 50 acres with 200 different daffodil types. That’s a whopping 20 million flowers.

For more flowers, head to the popular Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which features modern art amongst 80,000 daffodils, tulips, crocuses, hyacinths, and much more. There’s also an interactive children’s garden.

3. Discover Georgia’s Waterfalls

Any list of fun things to do in Georgia should include a waterfall hike in the state. Spring temperatures are perfect for experiencing the breathtaking waterfall hikes in North Georgia, including in and around Dukes Creek and Desoto.

4. Go to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon

Washington, D.C. isn’t the only place to see cherry blossoms in full bloom this spring. Downtown Macon celebrates its 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees each year at the International Cherry Blossom Festival. And yes, there are cherry desserts to try.

5. Pick Fresh Strawberries

Fun things to do in Georgia this spring often feature fruit. It’s the Peach State, after all. But strawberries are also a specialty, and the state has more than 40 strawberry fields for the public to pick some delicious treats. One of the best picking places is Southern Bell Farms in McDonough.

6. Go Medieval at the Georgia Renaissance Festival

Who’s ready for some jousting? This popular annual event in Fairburn is held throughout April and May and includes period costumes, crafts for sale, music, and more 15th-century awesomeness to make it one of the most unique fun things to do in Georgia.

7. Cheer on the Atlanta Braves

Spring means baseball, which means you have the chance to catch a game to support the World Series champion at Truist Park. While you’re in a sporty mood, you can check out Atlanta United, the city’s soccer team, this spring at Mercedes Benz Stadium.

8. Bike Your Way Through the State

There are numerous biking trails throughout the state, each with its flavor, sites, and skill levels. The 33-mile-long Atlanta BeltLine provides city views, while the 15-mile-long Chattahoochee Riverwalk in Columbus and the 30-mile-long Arabia Mountain path in Conyers provide a more natural setting.

9. Get Charmed by Savannah 

Savannah is one of the most quintessential Southern towns you’ll ever visit, full of historic homes and gardens, great seafood, and numerous art galleries and boutiques to explore. The City Market district is a great place to find work by local artisans or you can take a dinner cruise on the Georgia Queen Riverboat to get the full Savannah experience.

But Before You Go…

Applying for title loan

It’s difficult to travel when you’re struggling with a financial emergency. That’s where Georgia title pawns come in.

Georgia title pawns offer a short-term loan in exchange for your vehicle’s title to address a financial emergency such as an emergency room visit or needed home repair. At Georgia Auto Pawn, Inc., you may qualify for a title pawn of up to $15,000 in as little as 30 minutes.

All you need is:

  • The lien-free title to your vehicle
  • Your vehicle for a quick inspection to determine the amount you qualify for
  • A driver’s license or state-issued I.D.

Next, go online and fill out the short title pawn inquiry form.

Very soon after the submission, a loan representative from the store location closest to you will give you a call to walk you through the rest of the title pawn process. Once you are approved and qualify, you receive your title pawn cash the same day or the very next business day.
