7 scenic drives that will make you love Georgia just a bit more

Congratulations, you happen to live in a place surrounded by some of the most stunning and breathtaking scenery in the country. 

One drive around some of Georgia’s scenic byways, and you’ll be reminded of the beauty that lies just a few miles away from Atlanta.

Hit the road this year and experience these unbeatable scenic routes in Georgia:

The Cohutta-Chattahoochee Scenic Byway, Dalton

When you travel along the Cohutta-Chattahoochee Scenic Byway, you'll find yourself surrounded by peaceful forests, pastoral landscapes and stunning mountain overlooks. This scenic drive has a little bit of everything. It all starts at the Historic Prater's Mill, which takes you through the rolling hills of Murray County, meanders around the Chattahoochee National Forest and ends with a mountaintop overlook. To experience the Cohutta-Chattahoochee Scenic Byway, take Interstate 575/State Route 515 north to Ellijay then take State Route 52 west towards Chatsworth.

The Russell Brasstown Scenic Byway, Blairsville

If you're drawn to majestic mountain scenery, enjoy a scenic drive through the Russell Brasstown Scenic Byway. This route, which takes you deep within the Chattahoochee National Forest, travels past sections of the Appalachian Trail, through Helen, Georgia’s little slice of Bavaria, up to Brasstown Bald, the highest mountain in Georgia, and past Vogel and Unicoi State Parks. Access the Russell Brasstown Scenic Byway by taking Interstate 985 north to Highway 23. Follow to State Route 384, then take State Route 75 North to the byway.

The Ridge and Valley Scenic Byway, Villanow

Georgia is home to some of the most lush and fertile farmland in the South, and you can experience this for yourself on a journey along the Ridge and Valley Scenic Byway. Along this route, you'll see 19th century farmhouses sprinkled in with breathtaking mountain stop-offs, including the Keown Falls Scenic Area, John's Mountain Overlook and the Pocket. To get on the Ridge and Valley Scenic Byway, take Interstate 75 north to Exit 306, then travel west on State Route 140. Follow to Highway 27 and continue along the highway north until you reach State Route 156.

The Historic Effingham-Ebenezer Scenic Byway (cities of Ebenezer, Guyton, Springfield, and Rincon)

Take a tour through Southern history with a drive along the Historic Effingham-Ebenezer Scenic Byway. You can see the historic churches throughout Effingham County, explore American Revolution-era tavern sites, retrace the steps of George Washington and General Sherman and see the ferries and gorgeous waterways along the Savannah River. To take a scenic drive down the Historic Effingham-Ebenezer Scenic byway, get on Interstate 95 to Exit 109, then follow Highway 21 north to Fourth Street in Rincon where the byway begins. (Note: this is a long way from Atlanta. To get to I-95 from Atlanta take I-75 south to I-16 east to I-95 north. Basically, you drive almost to Savannah then head north.)

The Millen-Jenkins County Scenic Byway, Millen

If you love history, this scenic drive is for you. The Millen-Jenkins County Scenic Byway passes through the Downtown Millen Historic District. On this drive you’ll see turn-of-the-century railroad depots, notable farmhouses and churches and Historic Camp Lawton, the 1864 prisoner-of-war camp. Stop by the Millen-Jenkins County Museum to see Native American artifacts, 19th century tools and vintage cotton mill equipment. From Interstate 20 east, take Interstate 520 to Highway 25. Follow Highway 25 south to access the byway along Big Buckhead Church Road.

The Altamaha Historic Scenic Byway, Darien

Spanish moss and Southern heritage abound along the Altamaha Historic Scenic Byway. This route will take you past Fort King George, the Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation, Butler Island and the marsh ecosystems found throughout the Georgia Coast. Experience the Altamaha Historic Scenic Byway by taking Interstate 95 south to Exit 58, turning east on State Route 57. When State Route 57 becomes State Route 99, the Byway will begin at the Sapelo Island Visitors Center. (Note: again, this is a long way from Atlanta. To get to I-95 from Atlanta take I-75 south to I-16 east to I-95 south.)

The Enduring Farmlands Scenic Byway, Hawkinsville

Whether you love the idea of starting your own hobby farm or just enjoy looking out over a peaceful landscape, the Enduring Farmlands Scenic Byway will give you a glimpse into a truly Southern rural lifestyle. Visit quaint, small towns, shop at local farmer's markets and drive past pecan groves, cotton fields and cattle pastures along this picturesque route. Hit the road along the Enduring Farmlands Scenic Byway by taking Interstate 75 to Exit 135, follow to Highway 41, then continue toward the Perry/Larry Walker Parkway. The Byway begins in Hawkinsville.

Clark Howard’s Christmas Kids

Because of your generosity, the 2017 Clark's Christmas Kids campaign collected gifts for over 8,000 deserving foster children across Georgia! Thank you for helping us reach our goal and making a difference in the lives of kids in foster care this holiday season.

Thank you to our friends at The Goddard School for their generous contribution and their performance. 

We thank St. Vincent de Paul Georgia for their support.

Debate settled: This is the right time to put up your Christmas tree

While it may never reach the level of controversy of how to hang the toilet paper roll or which way to load the dishwasher, the right time to put up the Christmas tree is a heavily-debated household topic.

There are answers to this question that depend on everything from Prince Albert to the opinion of tree growers to something called Adelaide Pageant Day.

RELATED: They spent 30 hours to identify the best fake Christmas tree

Whether you're undecided on the best time to put up your Christmas tree or are merely looking for reinforcement for your preferred date, at least one of these timing traditions is bound to work for you:

Forbidding the tree before turkeys

The ultimate etiquette authority, Miss Manners, doesn't specify when you should put up the tree, but does note succinctly that it isn't done before Thanksgiving.

The nouveau 12 days of Christmas approach

In days of yore, the 12 days of Christmas started with Christmas Day and wrapped up on January 6, also known as the Feast of the Epiphany. Apartment Therapy suggests a more modern 12 Days of Christmas tree strategy, putting up the tree for around 12 days beginning in mid-December and taking it down right after Christmas.

This dovetails nicely with advice from the British Christmas Tree Growers Association, which noted in The Telegraph that while it's cool to buy live trees from December 1 onwards, the middle of the festive season, around the third week of Advent, is a good compromise between putting the tree up immediately and waiting for Christmas Eve.

Prince Albert

Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, is widely heralded as the man who lit up the Victorian Christmas tree tradition in the 1840s, bringing it to Britain from his native Germany. If you want to stick with the original Christmas Tree timeline of Albert and his German forebears, go with Christmas Eve. 

The Aussie approach

According to Monash University religious diversity professor Gary Bouma in The Age, the established guideline in Australia is not to put up the tree before December, but not everyone abides by it.

By "not everyone," he may mean the full 14 percent of Be a Fun Mum blog readers, who said they put up the tree in early November. They did restrain themselves until after something known as Adelaide Pageant Day, the second Saturday of November. And they are in solidarity with the Fun Mum herself, who says she put her tree up in early November because, "My mum always did. I love Christmas and like to string it out."

Viva Italiana

You may be leaning towards putting the tree up the first week of December anyhow, but this Italian tradition provides a godd reason for it. According to Italy Magazine, Italian Christmas traditions begin on December 8 with the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a date set in the Catholic calendar in 1476 by Pope Sixtus IV.

Since December 8 is a public holiday and most Italians get the day off, it has become the day when many of them put up their Christmas trees and other holiday decor.

The final word on when to put up your tree

Assuming your own family tradition isn't already firmly in place, Southern Living gets the last word on the best time to put up the Christmas tree. That's because the ultimate authorities on Southern taste on all things mayo and wicker are also so darn sensible and inclusive on this topic: "We pass no judgement, but here are the times for when to put up your Christmas decorations. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the earliest that you should set up a Christmas tree or put up Christmas-specific decorations."

The reason you shouldn't do it earlier? "It is inconsiderate for your beautiful tree to steal the thunder from your big turkey dinner."

As for the latest time to put up the tree, that would be Christmas Eve, a nod to bygone, less holiday-crazed times.

Tad & Drex Stuff The Truck

Join Tad, Drex and Kara as we STUFF THE TRUCK for Atlanta Community Food Bank at Publix in Alpharetta Commons located at 4305 State Bridge Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30022!  

We will be there on Thursday, November 16 from 2 until 7pm collecting Turkeys, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Green beans, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes and Corn for Atlanta area families in need. 

Atlanta Community Food Bank procures enough food to provide nearly 59 million meals each year and distributes it to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies serving families and individuals in 29 metro Atlanta and north Georgia counties.

Our community faces one of the highest levels of food insecurity in the nation—meaning that our neighbors often struggle to put food on the table, and that their access to nutritious food is limited by a lack of money and other resources. And the need continues to grow.

  • One in every four children in Georgia (23%) lives in food insecure households — meaning they don’t know where their next meal will come from.
  • 16% of Georgia’s population is food insecure.
  • Nearly 842,000 people – or 1 in 7 – across metro Atlanta and north Georgia to provide food for themselves and their families.
