About Georgia
Georgia, just the name sounds wonderfully Southern, “we’re in the South y’all”. Georgia is one of the Southern states of America. A contrast, because in the North of Georgia you will find mountains, waterfalls and beautiful nature, while the South on the Gulf of Mexico mainly has beautiful beaches to offer. Atlanta is a medium-sized and bustling capital, while Savannah has charm and quintessential Georgia. The state is also called ‘Peach State’, because of its many peaches. Prepare yourself for a lot of obesity because the ‘Peach Cobbler’ dessert comes from here and they like to eat fried chicken, pecan nuts and drink liters of sweet ice tea and Coca Cola. Georgia doesn’t have any National Parks in terms of wildlife, but with 48 State Parks, 15 historic sites, and the Appalachian Trail, there’s plenty to do in terms of wildlife!
