Visiting Atlanta & Northern Georgia
Summer will soon be fading to the earliest parts of fall in northern Georgia and Atlanta. Plan your next visit to the Peach State and explore a wide range of excellent attractions, pleasant festivals, and premier outdoor recreation, all at their most appealing this time of year.
The region is vast, with a number of pleasant and welcoming cities, each yielding their own unique and must-try fun. From Rome, out west and a short drive from the Chattahoochee National Forest, to Athens, which, at this time of year, is all about Georgia Bulldogs football, you’ll no doubt make the most of your late summer visit to northern Georgia.
The Georgia Bulldogs kick off their 2016 campaign on September 3rd when they take on the North Carolina Tar Heels – this game will actually be played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Later in the season, though, return to the usual home field, Sanford Stadium where, on October 1st, the Tennessee Volunteers will be in Athens to try and upset the Bulldogs in a fierce SEC battle. Make the drive south from Commerce and check out a Bulldogs game this fall.
Any visit to northern Georgia will no doubt feature a stay in Atlanta. One of the most unique and electrifying cities in the south, Atlanta will dazzle the senses this summer. On August 1st and 2nd, the Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival is a must-see. It’s a two-day showcase of up-and-coming theatre productions featured in Atlanta.
Be sure to catch Janet Jackson on her Unbreakable World Tour – she’ll be in Atlanta at the Philips Arena on August 7th. You can keep the music vibes alive and strong this summer in Atlanta – head for the Lakewood Amphitheater on August 12th to see rock legends Def Leppard perform. Nearby cities College Park and Hapeville yield quick and easy access to the downtown Atlanta area.
Make sure you swing through Duluth on this northern GA visit. Check out Duluth’s Summer Stage Concert Series. On the second Saturday of each month from now through September 10th, you’ll want to visit Main Street Duluth. August 13th features Drivin N Cryin, and the September 10th show will showcase the work of On The Border.
Duluth also celebrates their annual Duluth Fall Festival during the last weekend in September. Throughout downtown Duluth, find a wide range of fun, like the Festival Parade, the Festival Carnival, and the Festival 5K Road Race.
