Day Trips in Athens, Georgia-Part One

Planning an Itinerary 

Spring break is approaching pretty fast, and summer  vacation plans are already being planned. With the economic system being so bad and money being pretty tight, you are wondering what you can do for a vacation, yet be able to afford it.  This article is a set of links to several articles that help you make plans in the Athens, Georgia area.  The day trips are not expensive, they are great for the nature enthuses and it is an opportunity to spend good quality time together. 

The State Botanical Gardens of Georgia:   This day trip is especially good for the photography enthuses.  You could spend a long time in a day walking around exploring this 313 acre of land.  There are several different sections each displaying an unique spread of flowers and plants.  Each season brings new spreads of different flowers and plants. Spring is my favorite time to go to the gardens because of all of the fresh bloomed flowers.  Summer would be my second choice because of the hummingbirds and butterflies that gathers around a lot of the flowers. If you click on the link above, you can read more about the gardens.

Wildlife Zoo in Athens Georgia: Do you love wildlife animals? Bears, bobcats, owls, hawks and deer's oh my!!! I love going to this wildlife trail to photograph the bears and beavers.  Each will give you a wonderful show, just to have their pictures taken.  The bears are always into something, climbing trees,  playing with sticks, wrestling with each other.  You could spend the better part of a day just watching the bears and the beavers.  If you click on the link I provided, you can read more about Bear Hollow Wildlife Trail, I am sure you will find it interesting.
