Atlanta is a great city with lots and lots to do, inside and outside the perimeter. As the temperatures rise however, we all crave one thing – to cool off, specifically, beach side. Is there anything better? There’s just no place quite as relaxing, beautiful or pleasant, and no place that combines the simple pleasures of unplugging and enjoying nature in our otherwise tech-heavy and work-driven worlds.
No need to get to the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport and get on a plane for a great beach vacation. Check out our collection of 4 amazing beaches within driving distance to Atlanta you need to check out this summer!
Lanier Islands, Georgia
Lanier is the largest lake in Georgia, having nearly 700 miles of shoreline spread over 38,000 acres. Over 45 parks and 10 campgrounds line the shores of Lake Lanier. With so many lovely parks and campgrounds scattered around the 700 miles of shoreline, visitors won’t have difficulty finding a park to suit their needs. Lanier’s neighboring north Georgia towns of Helen and Dahlonega are not to be missed.
Located on Florida’s Emerald Coast, Destin is known for pristine white sand beaches and clear green water. If you’re a beach-walker or your kids enjoy building sand castles, this could be a great destination for you. May to June is the best time for swimming. The water is nice and warm and it’s not too hot.
Tybee Island, Georgia
Tybee Island is chock-full of coastal waterways worth exploring. For a day you’ll never forget, spend the afternoon on Little Tybee Island. The uninhabited island, accessible only by boat, kayak or jet ski, is the perfect place for a picnic, a nature walk or a shell hunt. A charming southern town of Savannah, GA is only a short 20-min drive away. Known as one of the “World’s 30 Friendliest Cities” by Condé Nast Traveler readers, this coastal town has a world-class reputation for hospitality and grace.
Hilton Head, South Carolina
Hilton Head beach in South Carolina is a beautiful place that offers 12 miles of beach you have to see! Many golf courses and tennis courts, along with some of the most picturesque biking trails, are located within the island’s plantation communities and only available to guests, so plan your trip accordingly and stay in a place that will give you access to these amenities.
