In addition to miles of sand fringed with beach grass and cooled by salt breezes, Cumberland Island National Seashore is the spot to star-gaze, hike meandering trails, bird-watch and catch cultural sights, all within easy reach of the Landmark Historic District of Jekyll Island, to the north.
Leave traffic and the nine-to-five rush behind on a leisurely stroll through the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, a carefully cultivated expanse of blossom-brightened greenery in Piedmont Park. Wander through a perfectly balanced Japanese Garden, stop to smell the blooms in the Rose Garden, escape the sunshine in the Woodland Shade Garden and make your way, via the Rock Garden, to the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory for an introduction to convservation between tropical plants like elegant orchids, or arid exhibits in the Desert House. Your young ones will enjoy a romp in the Children's Garden and a walk along the short nature trail in Storza Woods, while the culturally minded will want to keep an eye out for some of the permanent art on show, from frothing fountains to sculpture, and sign up for a guided garden tour.
