Milledgeville is a wonderful historic small town. The antebellum Governor's Mansion is open for tours. There is a trolley tour of the historic area. The Front Campus of Georgia College and State University is a beautiful shaded greenspace bordering downtown. Downtown is very quaint with restaurants and shops. Milledgeville was the state capital up until the Civil War, so the old State Capital is open for tours also.....it is now part of Georgia Military College. Flannery O'Connor's home and farm, Andalusia, is just outside of town.
Lake Sinclair is about 30 minutes from Milledgeville....you could rent a house on the lake. Also, Lake Oconee is a little farther away, with the very upscale Reynolds Plantation.
Great ideas from Art. We have done the Governors Mansion tour and the tour of Andalusia. Downtown area is also nice just to walk around in. Not too far south is Macon which also has historic homes, etc.
