Going to an area of the state you're not familiar with? Just go to the "Favorites" listing by region and you can't go wrong. Now, too, the publisher's website posts quarterly updates of major changes and additions to the book. This keeps the book current for several years after publication. The goal - keep the books inexpensive and easy to use over and over again. Explore places where you can explore hidden islands, humbling habitats, and historic gold mines. See playful puppets, dancing dolphins, and comical kangaroos. "Watch out" for cowboys, Indians, and swamp creatures. We'll tell you how Cherokee and Geechee, Presidents and pioneers lived and even how to pet a kangaroo. You'll know where to go to stand side-by-side a peach packer, watch a school bus formed right before your eyes, or enter the magical world of Cabbage Patch Babyland - where you might witness a birth of a new doll. Another weekend you'll have all the travel details you need to go behind the scenes on a tour of gorgeous sports fields. Practice rhythm & blues or winning shots at various Hall of Fames. Of course, there's plenty of kid-friendly details on nationally known sites like Stone Mountain, and the birthplace of Gone with the Wind and Girl Scouts. Want Action? Trolley or walk past famous landmarks. Climb to the top of old forts and lighthouses. Like Water? Boat on rivers and canals or ferry to remote islands. Meet aquatic endangered sea turtles and other marine life. Bike through mountains and marshes under Spanish Oak. Pack your knapsack as you hike to find amazing waterfalls, ancient mounds, and a whimsical Children's Garden. Or, ride the rails past old bridges and country sides near historic sites. If you're hungry, KIDS LOVE GEORGIA knows where to sample peaches or be a pecan taste-tester. The book will tell you how to eat your way through apple, onion, pumpkin and peanut festivals. Eat in a real train depot and try some fried green tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café. Drink Cokes from around the world, try Barbara Jean's crabcakes, or eat yummy red wieners from a "dog house" kids meal. The book is formatted in 6 geographical zones providing maps, reviews, websites, prices, etc. to save you lots of effort. Web searching? Wasting Time?
