Planning a family trip while on a tight budget can be pretty stressful, but thankfully there are plenty of ideas that will give you a great vacation in Georgia without breaking the bank.
The Golden Isles
The Golden Isles are a group of four barrier islands that lie along the Atlantic coast between Jacksonville and Savannah.

Between St. Simon’s Island and Jekyll Island, there are wide stretches of pristine beaches to build sandcastles or swim in the ocean.
Options for accommodation are plentiful, so there is most likely to be somewhere that fits into any price range. The city of Brunswick plays host to a variety of festivals and tours all year round.
The City of Atlanta
The state capital of Georgia is rich in history and culture, and you will find plenty to do whatever your budget.
