4 Tips to Help You Plan the Best Eco-Friendly Travels to Georgia 

Prioritize Staycations 

If you want to know one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint while going on a vacation, it’s cutting down on the traveling altogether! Why go hundreds of miles away when you can take a staycation and enjoy the gorgeous outdoors near your home? It’s just as relaxing and fun. The North Georgia mountains make for the perfect getaway, with their breathtaking beauty, fresh air, numerous trails, and, of course, splendid cabins where you and your loved ones can relax.  

 
Share a Ride 

Another great idea if you want to travel sustainably is to share a ride. Indeed, why use twice as much gas when you can easily pack your entire traveling party into one vehicle? You’re going to the same destination, so make the most of it! Sharing a ride not only makes traveling cheaper (think about the dollars you’ll save by splitting the gas bill with your friends), but it also makes for a more fun adventure! After all, who doesn’t like a good road trip on a scenic road? 

 
Reduce Your Plastic Consumption 

One of the most popular things to do in the North Georgia mountains is hiking. Our splendid area offers acres and acres of woodland and mountain trails for you to enjoy, and it’s an activity that doesn’t hurt the planet if done right. One way you can make sure you’re protecting the local environment is by ditching plastic! Littering is a big threat to our parks, so do your part and cut it out altogether from your hike! Instead of using countless plastic bottles, pack up a reusable cup or canteen! Most trails are equipped with water fountains, so it’s a win-win situation. Make sure you also carry a trash bag with you so you don’t leave anything on the trail! 

 
Encourage Local Businesses 

Finally, another way you can reduce your impact on the environment when traveling to North Georgia is by supporting local businesses. Forget about grabbing food from a chain store. Instead, go to local restaurants and cafes! Not only will you get to know the community, but you will also contribute to its well-being and economy.
