We are two seniors planning a road trip from Washington down to Clearwater and after we leave Chattanooga, Tn, we know absolutely nothing about the state of Georgia other than we have been advised to avoid Atlanta due to very heavy traffic. We therefore thought we might stop at Macon? Is there anywhere else of interest, sightseeing; also is there a beach resort in the south or would we need to go all the way to Clearwater for a decent, safe beach with easy access to an international airport for our flight home?
Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated but we do need help please. Thanks.
