1. Caesars Head State Park
What is it? A verdant state park that spans 13,000 acres and features #nofilterneeded views of Georgia and the Carolinas.
Why go? Whether you want to hike or take the lazy route and drive your car to an overlook, this park is a beautiful place to explore the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you’re truly ambitious, hike the 77-mile Foothills Trail that starts in neighboring Table Rock State Park. There’s a shuttle service that lets you park your car at the end and get a ride to the trailhead.
