Best places to pull over on your next road trip through Georgia

One place to check out in each of our neighbors.

If you are taking a trip through Georgia this spring, there are several hotspots worth making a detour for.

Quick, accessible and affordable, these three places will make your Georgia road trip truly memorable.


Gas stations are inevitable stops for any road trip, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun. Buc-ee’s is the superstore garnering attention around the country. With stores in Calhoun and Warner Robins, Georgia drivers can now enjoy all the store has to offer — which is quite a bit.

From the beef jerky bar to the nifty tees and collectibles, it’s a stop worth making when you need the fuel.

Expedition: Bigfoot

For those traveling through North Georgia, there is no stop quite like Expedition: Bigfoot.

The self-guided tour takes 45 minutes to an hour — making it a quick stop for those looking for a reason to stretch their legs between destinations.

From the bigfoot butt prints (yes, you read that correctly) to the retelling of Teddy Roosevelt’s experience with an alleged bigfoot witness, it’s a visit you will not soon forget.

The sasquatch museum’s cost of admission is $8 for those 13 or older, $6 for children 5-12 and free for active military and children under 5.


Lengthier road trips require a place to stay for the night. While highway adjacent hotels are quick and easy to access, those driving along Georgia’s coast should bed down in Savannah.

Most visit Savannah for the historic River Street and all it has to offer.

The street is home to the town’s phenomenal restaurants, shops and bars, making it a perfect spot to blow off steam after a long day of driving.
