Hello all locals. Next summer we are relocating to the East Coast and will be driving through the state on our way and would like to see some great attractions among our country. Of course, there is Yellowstone but please help us out and give me some ideas of places and things to see that are not to be missed on our journey. What do locals love in the state, as a tourist what are some things that we should put on our list. I will also have a 13 year old with me so some family ideas are great also.
Thank you all for your ideas.

I would have to put Savannah at the top of the list.. followed by St Simons/Golden Isles area.
If you are going through North Georgia, check out Dahlonega and towards Chattanooga check out Cloudland Canyon.
Atlanta also has some interesting places places.. it's more of a business city than a tourist city, but Atlanta has some cool tourist attractions liek Stone Mountain, Aquarium, World of Coke, etc.

I'm going to second both Savannah ,St.Simmons Island and Jekyll Island. The Golden Isles area and most of what is called " the low country " of both Georgia and South Carolina is like no where else in the country.Absolutely one of my favorite places to visit anytime,any day.
My other choice would be the mountains in extreme North Georgia up along the state lines with both Tennessee and North Carolina. From Fannin County on the east, over to Rabun county on the west ,all of it is beautiful !

Take a tour of the covered bridges of the state. In N.E. Georgia there are at least 8. Then there is the "American Stonehenge" near Elberton. I do agree, the St. Simon's Island area is very nice.
