Folkston, Georgia

Experience rural South Georgia, with a taste of authentic, small-town charm. This excellent weekend getaway is complete with beautiful sights, outdoor exploration, and rich history. Get up close and personal with trains by relaxing under the Folkston Funnel, visiting the historical train museum, or even sleeping overnight in a train cart. Immerse yourself in off-the-beaten-path experiences at the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge with the option to travel by foot, boat, or kayak. Photograph the overhanging beauty and wildlife or take a step back in time and see how the early swampers dwelled.
