Quick trips close to home They say that the most important feature of a property is location, location, location. Here in Middle Georgia, we are blessed with a great location. We are close to the mountains, the big city, the east cost and the gulf coast. Within a half days’ drive, we can travel to many different “destinations”. But there are actually some really great spots even closer to home that most people don’t realize are here or we take for granted that we can go “anytime”!

From the Parks at Chehaw, to the Flint Riverquarium, there is something for every type of traveler. The Albany Civil Rights Institute and the Albany Museum of Art also offer great learning experiences. One of our favorite spots is the Art Park on Pine. It’s a community center purposed with hosting events that highlight local artists. You can observe, create and/or perform all forms of art in what was an old section of buildings that otherwise would be underutilized. Artists are always working on new projects on the walls inside.
