While Georgia is known around the world for our peaches, many don’t know how beautiful this state really is. From the northern Georgia mountains, to the 110 miles of Georgia coastline, there are a lot of scenic routes you can take with a loved one or with the whole family.
There’s nothing quite like a scenic road trip. Sometimes it may even be worth the longer journey to see beautiful sites, stop at local shops and restaurants, and get a real, genuine feel for the town.
Our cars at Savannah Car Rentals are reliable, safe, and perfect for a scenic drive anywhere. But we’ve identified some of our favorite scenic adventures around our very own beautiful state. Booking a car has never been easier with our four easy steps. Also, we always offer the highest discount for our veteran drivers, just ask!
1. Ridge & Valley Scenic Byway – 51 Miles
As its name would imply, this scenic byway allows drivers to view the many terrains of northwest Georgia. You’ve got a selection of mountain overlooks pairs with lush farmlands. It’s a great stretch to turn up the music, relax, and drive. It’s beautiful in any season, but we love and are suckers for the foliage during autumn.
2. Coastal Highway U.S. 17
This is a great option for ditching the crowded and busy highway. US 17 stretches nearly across the length of Georgia. It’s a perfect destination and journey for those interested in birding. Along the highway are 18 viewing spots to observe over 300 species of bird. Wow! Some of the viewing spots include Colonial Coast Birding Trail and Harris Neck National Refuge.
3. Cohutta-Chattahoochee Scenic Byway
This is one of Georgia’s most breathtaking scenic drives. Almost 6 hours outside of Savannah, this scenic drive includes stunning views of the Cohutta Mountains. The byway begins in Prater’s Mill in Whitfield County, following State Route 2 into Murray County. The 54-mile route ends in a beautiful mountain look. It’s a beautiful photo opportunity and scenic destination.
