The ’21 holiday season has been festive for Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites. Kim Hatcher, Public Affairs Coordinator, says that coming attractions include a history walk and ornament crafts over at the Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site in Cartersville, farm tours that highlight holiday traditions from over the past century at Jarrell Plantation State Historic Site down near Macon, and opportunities to make winter luminaries and sip hot cocoa at Fort Mountain State Park in Chatsworth.
Information about these and other events may be obtained from Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites’ website at www.gastateparks.org.
Hatcher states that parks will be open on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day for those who wish to escape from the holiday hustle and bustle with a nature break. First Day Hikes will be offered once again on New Year’s Day.
Gift shops at parks around the state offer many great options to visitors who have yet to finish their Christmas shopping, adds Hatcher.
