    I am researching each state after my Treasures in Your Backyard Article.  Does anyone have anything awesome to share about their state for me? This is Petit Jean State Park in AR:  My favorite thinking spot. smile

      Hi Lizzie. I used to live in Georgia, where Stone Mountain was always a highlight.

        I've been to Atlanta and we almost went there but it was towards the end of our trip and we had to pick between that or the aquarium.  Stone Mountain is on our next trip!  Thanks for the tip! smile

      I live in California, and there are many more incredible places here than I can name. There is Yosemite National park. You could spend weeks exploring that one alone.

      There is an amazing variety of beaches stretching across our long coastline. Everything from white sand and surfing at to cliffs, elephant seal rookeries and whale watching.

      We have mountains, redwood forests and deserts. For redwoods I love Hwy 101 in northern California.

    Also in Atlanta, a Downtown trip can include the aquarium, CNN Studio Tours, right around the corner, The World of Coca Cola (You can taste many strange products they produce for other cultures, bring your vomit bucket). Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market are both places to go to get trendy bites, shop a little and sit indoors or outdoors to eat and drink. Ponce city market is on the BeltLine

    (The Atlanta BeltLine is a sustainable redevelopment project that is transforming the city. It will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of multi-use trails, modern streetcar, and parks – all based on railroad corridors that formerly encircled Atlanta.)
