Jekyll Island Club Hotel RENDER DAVIS fÉâà{xÜÇ zÜtvxá Travel the historic highways and scenic byways of South Georgia BY RENDER DAVIS f South of Atlanta, below the fall line marking the boundary between the rolling Piedmont Plateau and the ancient coastal plain, is an area that defies the simple label, “South Georgia.” In fact, the scenic byways, broad vistas and picture-postcard communities that dot the landscape from the Chattahoochee Valley to the historic coast are as varied in texture as a quilt, and just as warm and inviting. This land encourages unhurried exploration to reveal its many treasures—whether a performance at Columbus’ Springer Opera House or a stroll along St. Marys riverfront, inspiration for Savannah native Johnny Mercer’s timeless “Moon River.” The following driving tours offer a glimpse of two distinctive areas rich in cultural history and subtle natural beauty that will whet your appetite to return again. So grab a state map and pack the car for a road trip to regions filled with Southern graces. 28 TOUR TWO Pine Mountain Warm Springs Columbus Andersonville Fort Benning Westville Americus Plains Blakely Albany Waycross TOUR ONE Savannah Midway Darien Brunswick Jekyll Island Tybee Island Sapelo Island St. Simons Island Thomasville Okefenokee Swamp Cumberland Folkston Island Fargo GEORGIA MAGAZINE
