Find Your Reason to Stay a Little Longer
The only thing better than summertime itself is being a kid during summer. This time of year, many of us feel nostalgic for those carefree days of splashing around at a local lake, hanging out with friends into the late, muggy evenings and road trips in the family station wagon. Though it may seem that many of our favorite childhood places and activities only exist in our memories, there are still plenty of ways to experience a summer similar to the "good old days." Certain destinations seem to breathe nostalgia, such as Georgia's Greene County, located about an hour drive east from Atlanta. Travelers can experience familiar tastes, sights and sounds, such as watching fireworks by the lake, eating fresh-picked berries and indulging in classic summer activities. If you're longing for a trip that whisks you back in time, or want to show your kids or grandkids what fun is all about, consider these 10 activities in Greene County.
