Maybe the fifth anniversary of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights has been your reminder that you still really need to get to Atlanta to take in this new cultural icon. Or maybe seeing Georgia on Newsweek's 2019 list of Must-Visit Global Destinations for Foodies - right after the Amalfi Coast, no less - was all you needed to start plotting your pilgrimage. Or - no judgement - maybe the just-released, much-buzzed-about third season of Stranger Things has you desperate to tour the various Georgia towns that serve as stand-ins. Or - hello, nature lovers! - maybe you caught Outside magazine's recent declaration that Amicalola Falls State Park is home to some of the best trekking you can do in the U.S.
Point is, Georgia is on everyone's mind right now. So pick your passion (or a few) from the rundown below, then plot your fall escape.
