Georgia attracts a huge number of tourists every year. These are mainly Americans who come here from other regions to learn more about historical monuments, the beauty of nature and other attractions of the state. But over the past 20 years, the number of foreign tourists has increased significantly. The main reason for this is that Atlanta has become one of the largest international business centers. Today, it houses the main offices of such world-famous corporations as Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines, Home Depot and AT&T, etc.
Why is Georgia worth visiting?
There are two answers to that. The first is the sights of the state. There are so many of them that it is simply impossible to get bored. The most popular of them are: the Coca-Cola Museum, the CNN Center, Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind museum, the US’s largest aquarium, the Centennial Olympic Park – and all this is in Atlanta alone.
There is also Forsyth Park in the historic district of Savannah; the National Park, the incredible architecture and music heritage in Macon; the National Naval Museum, the Planetarium, the Space Science Center and the National Infantry Museum in Columbus. Moreover, the state has many authentic small places that preserve the spirit of history, for example, the city of Dahlonega during the Gold Rush, Jekyll Island, etc. However, the main pride of Georgia is its nature. This region is home to a large scenic mountain range, the Appalachian Mountains. The state is also full of various lakes, forests, and waterfalls.
The eastern part of the state, which has access to the Atlantic Ocean, deserves special attention. The coast of Georgia covers about two hundred kilometers and includes 15 large islands. 4 of them are connected to the mainland by bridges. Each of them has something worth seeing, which is why the place attracts many tourists all year round.
