There are some breathtaking views and places to visit just a short drive away in G-A.
Canton, Roswell, and Peachtree City were named on list by Newsbreak as 3 amazing spots to visit in Georgia, when you just want a change of scenery. But I've come up with a few others that are road trip worthy with family or friends, if you want some great views and quite spots.
Providence Canyon State Park
Hiking the trails around Providence Canyon shows off some amazing rainbow-colored soil, deep cliffs and breathtaking views of the canyon. It's one of Georgia's 7 natural wonders and was nicknamed the Little Grand Canyon. Just a few hours South of Atlanta. GET DIRECTIONS
Brasstown Bald in the Chattahoochee Oconee National Forest
One can see fours states on a clear day from Brasstown Bald. Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina are within site. At 1,548 meters above sea level it gives you some stunning things to see and appreciate that God created. With museums and history to explore, there is no shortage of great memories to be made.

This is one of my favorite places to visit for all the German feels. German architecture, German food, arts and crafts in a bustling downtown, that is set in a backdrop of the Georgia mountains. It's just got great vibes. Not to mention, you can hike trails and maybe run into bigfoot, or shoot the hooch on some tubes. There's even a little mountain roller coaster and tree top adventure to explore. Plus, my kids love mining for Gold. It's an awesome day trip with so much to do. GET DIRECTIONS
Lots of fun hiking trails, great places and the prettiest waterfalls in Georgia are just a short drive from Atlanta in Amicalola Falls in North GA. The views are unmatched and the photo ops are plenty. Plus, there is lodging to stay overnight and plenty of outdoorsy things to be in nature. GET DIRECTIONS
St. Simons Island, GA
If you need a coast and some water in your life, St. Simons Island is so beautiful. With the world famous St. Simon's Lighthouse or the stunning pier, you'll find some peace and wave sounds to rest your mind. Salt marshes and sandy stretches like East Beach are what makes this little spot of heaven amazing. Rebuilt in 1872 after it was destroyed in the Civil War, it's holds a lot of history. Fishing or just watching migrating whales created some amazing tranquility. GET DIRECTIONS
