Valet Living Picks: Best Summer Activities

Summer is in full swing and our team has compiled a list of their favorite summer activities. Here’s to some fun in the sun!

 

Plan A Beach Trip

What better way to beat the summer heat than by wading into the ocean? Kayak around a historic lighthouse at Tybee Island, explore Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, photograph the secluded beach on St. Catherine’s Island near Midway and much more on the Georgia Coast.

 

Go Camping

Whether you are a seasoned survivalist, a newbie to nature, or your idea of camping is Holiday Inn without a hairdryer, Georgia’s state parks offer a number of programs and opportunities to help you and yours get outside this summer and enjoy Georgia’s unique range of natural beauty. Click here for a few camping spots to check out!

 

Visit a Farmers Market

Take advantage of the state’s agricultural bounty by visiting one of the many Georgia Grown farmers markets, like Dublin’s Market on Madison, the Atlanta State Farmers MarketOconee Farmers Market and the Cordele State Farmers Market, the major watermelon distribution hub for the Southeast. They’re easy to find in nearly every region. You’ll find fresh produce, meats, seafood, prepared foods, and crafts. It’s a great way to pick up ingredients to cook for friends and family. The Georgia Department of Agriculture is a good place to start looking.

 

Visit The High Museum

In addition, they’ll receive free parking in the Woodruff Arts Center deck with proof of service. Last but not least, on the second Sunday of each month, Woodruff Arts Center offers a free family program with High admission.

 

Catch a drive-in-movie

Although there aren’t many drive-in theaters left, summertime is great for catching an outdoor film in Georgia. Gather your friends, chairs, and snacks for a new or second-run movie. Swan Drive In in Blue Ridge, Starlight in Atlanta, Jesup Drive In in Jesup, Tiger Drive In in Tiger, and Wilderness Outdoor Movie Theater in Trenton are ones you can check out around the state.
