Georgia is a fascinating combination of American history and modern culture � and an increasingly enjoyable travel destination. With home-spun humor and a slightly detectable Southern drawl, veteran travel writer and Savannah native Marty Olmstead guides readers through the state's most popular attractions to cozy antiquated inns and out-of-the-way islands. Combining detailed research and vivid photographs, Hidden Georgia uncovers the state's beautiful natural areas and small towns most visitors never see. It details 53 diverse hiking trails and 41 lush golf courses while providing Civil War buffs with 27 war sites and museums. The author recommends 33 restored historic hotels and 16 seaside inns as well as reviews 19 restaurants serving New South cuisine dishes such as grilled quail over black-eyed pea succotash and homemade peach ice cream. Like each title in the Hidden series, this guide offers readers the comfort of detailed maps, Internet information for each listing, suggested itineraries, and walking and driving tours.
