Georgia has some of the best scenic drives in the country!

If you want to see the entire list of corridors that have achieved Georgia Scenic Byways status as designated by the Georgia DOT, you can check them out HERE.

There are 17 TOTAL! This will keep us busy traveling over the next few years! These are my favorite so far!

  • Meriwether-Pike Scenic Byway

    Beautiful scenery and lots of history along the way. This was one of FDR’s favorite routes when he visited Warm Springs.




  • Helen, GA, to the Brasstown Bald Loop

    The waterfalls along the way are some of the BEST!


  • Georgia Highway 197

    A friend of mine introduced us to some of the must see stops on 197 in North Georgia. This is from a cabin rental he recommended.
