DO, EAT, SEE
DO: The Market at Rutland Farms is the place to go year round, but here’s their summer schedule of fruit picking and pulling. While you’re there, feel free to pick up some yummy jams and jellies and such!
EAT: Steffen’s Restaurant is “Southern Comfort” food, and everyone in Georgia knows that’s a thing, right? Along with that, their sought-after shrimp along with their biscuits and gravy (look at the picture on their site!), and their hand-spun milkshake are favorites of their fans.
DO: South of Atlanta you’ll find Callaway Gardens. It’s a great place to visit to relax but also has a lot of activities to keep you busy if that is your kind of away time. Check out their events calendar for their Hot Air Balloon Festival, Skiing Tournaments, and Symphony concerts, and know you can always hike and bike to their many other attractions and activities, including the beautiful Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel, pictured here.
SEE: Visit Old Car City in White, Georgia where the sign at Old Car City south of Calhoun calls it a “photographer’s paradise” because of the 32-acre junkyard of cars. Most of the vehicles are from the 20th century, and the classic cars from the 1950s through the 1980s.
EAT: Luigi’s Italian, around since 1949, is Augusta’s oldest Italian restaurant and they claim their pizza pie was Augusta’s first, too!
