Pros: I really liked how chipper and ready to go my driver was. He was a couple minutes late but the smoothness of the trip made up for it completely. Cons: Honestly nothing! I was very content. Tips: Definitely try this, it’s much better than uber or lyft or anything.

Atlanta is the capital of Georgia and the largest city in the Peach State. Located in the heart of America’s South, Atlanta is one of the foremost economic and cultural hubs in the region and the United States in general. As such, it's among the best vacation destinations in Georgia.

The city has played a major role in the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. As a result, across Atlanta you can find various museums and points of interest dedicated to the lives and works of various key figures in those events, including the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and the Atlanta History Center. Unsurprisingly, Atlanta is an important stop on our MLK Jr. itinerary.

Atlanta is also a key hub for the U.S. entertainment industry, and it offers some of the best nightlife experiences in the country. Here, you will find some of the finest craft beer in America and enjoy some of the best and most authentic southern food.

As the oldest city in the state of Georgia, Savannah still impressively preserves a charming vibe that so many cities have lost. For fans of U.S. history, the city is a must-not-miss, as it houses one of the oldest Black churches in the country, the First African Baptist Church. Fort Pulaski, famous for being a safe haven for enslaved African Americans, has now been converted into a national monument where visitors can learn more about the city’s heritage. Among the most unique destinations in Savannah is the 100-year-old Bonaventure Cemetery, which serves as the final resting place for many famous people.

Savannah's cuisine is just one of many reasons the city ranks in the best vacation destinations in Georgia. Savannah offers staple Southern fried dishes that will indulge your senses. The best place to try these indulgences is The Olde Pink House. If you are looking for some black-owned eateries, Sisters Real Southern Cooking and Geneva’s Famous Chicken & Cornbread Co. will suffice.
