Hard to believe there's a beach an hour and a half from Atlanta. I actually headed to the gardens for for a bike ride. They have a ten mile trail, the beach was just a bonus! We also enjoyed the butterfly conservatory. Admission is $18 per person but it was free for Labor Day. It will also be free on 9/11 and during other special days. I can't wait to come back to see the lights at Christmas time and to try the zip line course. If you need a place to stay, check out the charming Chipley Murrah Bed and Breakfast. For a snack, stop by LuBell's ice-cream as soon as you exit. $3.99 for a waffle cone was a little pricey but well worth it. Blue Bell was the perfect cool treat to our hot day. We'll definitely return!
