Georgia, nestled in the Deep South, is home to a wealth of scenic parks, quiet beaches, cozy bed-and-breakfasts and bright city lights. Whether in bustling Midtown Atlanta or the secluded coastal islands, finding a spot in Georgia for a romantic getaway is easier than you might think. Read on to learn more.
Spend a Weekend in Atlanta
Spend the weekend in Midtown Atlanta staying at the Georgian Terrace, a historic hotel in a great location on Peachtree Street. The Georgian Terrace hosted the world premiere of Gone with the Wind, and is the embodiment of southern comfort and hospitality.
Enjoy exclusive entertainment and the Fox Theatre, periodically home to traveling Broadway productions, local and international musicians, dance performances, and opera, so check out their schedule to see if they have entertainment to suit your mood.
Finish your day with a romantic dinner in the award-winning restaurant on top of the Westin, where the circular dining room rotates for panoramic views of the city.
Spend a Weekend in Savannah
Stay at one of the many historic bed-and-breakfasts located in Savannah for a homey feel. Staff will provide friendly help and can accommodate any requests to make your weekend even more romantic or special.
Take a morning stroll by the river. You'll find shopping, quaint candy boutiques, live music and plenty of spots to enjoy a relaxing moment together as you walk along the water.
Enjoy a quiet dinner at one of many seafood restaurants along the river. Any restaurant will serve up delicious southern cooking, so pick one with good views and outdoor seating as the sun sets over the city.
Spend a Weekend at the Beach
Spend a great weekend any time of year at the beach on one of Georgia's many coastal islands. Romantic and secluded spots abound even in the summer, though the fall or spring is the best time to go. Rent a small house for the most personal experience and some private space.
Spend the weekend on Tybee Island or St. Simon's Island for some of Georgia's favorite beach spots. Spend the days together on the beach, shelling, swimming, biking, or just enjoying each other's company, and make the short trip into Savannah for an afternoon or evening.
Visit Cumberland Island or Jekyll Island for an even more secluded spot, where you'll enjoy more nature and less developed beach landscapes. While there aren't many hotels and amenities, the silence of the landscape has a romantic quality all its own.
