Instead of relying on airlines for your next trip, why not skip the airport and opt for a car ride instead? Here are three destinations less than 100 miles from Atlanta, Georgia that are worth discovering.

Explore Newnan for Small-Town Charm

Newnan is the perfect escape from the big city! Visitors can roll into town in the morning and start their day with coffee and a pastry downtown before roaming around and popping into local stores. For outdoor fun, explore the beauty of the destination at Chattahoochee Bend State Park and be sure to stop at one of the most unique roadside attractions in the country – Barbie Beach.; photos courtesy of Explore Newnan Coweta

Travel Back in Time at Cartersville-Bartow County

Cartersville-Bartow County is known for its natural beauty, rich history and some of the state’s best-hidden gems. Affectionately nicknamed the “Museum City,” the destination is home to two Smithsonian Affiliate museums as well as significant cultural and historical sites, such as one of the nation’s most significant Native American archeological digs, the Etowah Indian Mounds. Visitors can also enjoy a meal at The 4-Way Lunch, Georgia’s oldest restaurant without a telephone offering Southern diner classics. 

A Little Bit of Everything in Athens

More than just the home of the college football champions Georgia Bulldogs, Athens has quickly become a must-visit destination for its eclectic mix of Southern traditions, modern attractions and a vibrant music and arts scene. The vibe and energy that gave birth to R.E.M., the B-52s and Widespread Panic teems with creativity and features a wide variety of independent restaurants, shops and breweries along with historic sites and museums.
