Georgia Vacation

 This is a project I did for my Web Design Class, thought I'd share it with y'all.
Every summer I get a chance to see my family from Georgia, either they come out to see us, or we go down to Georgia. I absolutely love Georgia and the South. I love the weather, and it’s so beautiful down there. This is a little bit about what I like to do down in Georgia.

 

Favorite Places to go in Georgia


The Georgia Aquarium

I love aquariums. I always try to visit this one while I’m in Georgia. It’s definitely one of my favorite aquariums, (although my favorite aquarium is the Salt Lake Aquarium because I love the macaws in the South America section.) My favorite part of this aquarium is the penguins. I love penguins and the ones here are adorable. More info about the Georgia Aquarium here.


Stone Mountain
I absolutely love going to Stone Mountain. I am a history buff, and love all the history about it. I also love the amusement park there, the ropes courses are my favorite, I usually do at least two. I also love the laser show they do during the summer. I really like firework shows, but the laser show they do on the mountain is amazing. If you’re there during the summer, go see the laser show!

The Georgia Malls

I love to shop at the Georgia Malls! I love shopping in general, and having two malls that are big and full of my favorite stores is amazing. I save so much money during the year for this shopping spree. I also loving attending Medieval Times at one of the malls. A great dinner, watching a medieval joust, is really fun, especially after a long day of shopping.

 

I am a city girl, so leaving my small town home to go down to Georgia is always fun. My family lives in a small town, right outside of Atlanta, called Buford. To get there we have to drive through the city. I love looking at all the lights and skyscrapers as we drive through. We always go swimming at my family’s neighbors pool while we’re down there. I also love eating boiled peanuts, and a beautiful fresh Georgia watermelon. But the best part is seeing my family that I don’t usually get to see.
