Could someone with knowledge of Georgia, help? I'm looking to go out of town for my birthday in late July and I have my eyes on Georgia, I am open to any city other than Atlanta. I am open to staying in a hotel, Airbnb or cabin, which would be the better option that is in the middle of all the activities I'd like to do.

Details:
I will be flying to GA, so I won't have a car.
After GA, I'll be flying out of GA to FL to visit family, so whatever city it is should be not far from or have an airport.

Ideal vacation:

-I like to explore and see new things, learn about the city
-I'd like to go horseback riding
-Shopping, going to a mall or shopping center and food are important
-Also want to relax, go to a spa or movie while I'm there.
-Would like to be within walking distance to most activities

I am planning to stay a week so I'd like to stay busy.

I hope this is enough information.

Have you checked online to see what Georgia cities you can fly into from where you are, and then fly out of to your Florida destination? I'm assuming you will be taking a commercial flight. Or do you have your own plane?

Either way, how do you plan to get from the Georgia airport to all the different activities you mention? I would check various Georgia cities and towns to see if they have Uber or Lyft or good taxi service. It might be very hard to find a shopping center that is within walking distance of a good barn, for instance.

This one is easy: Savannah.

Athens could work for you also.

Savannah was my first thought, as it would offer such a variety of experiences in a limited amount of time.
There are plenty of opportunities for horseback riding in the area as well.

I can't imagine a lovelier day than to take the water taxi from Savannah to Daufuskie Island and enjoy a ride on the island's pristine beaches.

Savannah. Athens in July isn't quite as happening as the rest of the year IMO.

Never really saw Athens as a vacation spot, plus without a car that's going to be pretty impossible.

Savannah is great though.

If the OP could rent a car I would choose Helen GA over Athens, possibly even Augusta (museums) as well.

Thank you for your answer. But the reason I don't want a car is because I don't want to speed all my time driving in traffic.

I'd prefer someplace that doesn't have a bunch of tourist, traffic etc. especially if I'm going to need to drive from point A to point B.
