DayTripping from Americus - Guest Photos - Andersonville, Plains, Habitat, Massee Lane

People always ask us "what is there to do around Americus?"  Thanks to some of our recent guests, I'm going to share some photos of the local attractions that they visited while staying in our beautiful home.

Kimberly and Kirk toured Andersonville, Jimmy Carter's Boyhood Farm, the Jimmy Carter Museum and Campaign Headquarters, Maranatha Baptist Church to hear Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School, and Habitat for Humanity's Global Village.

Claire and Mike hiked Providence Canyon in Lumpkin and strolled the gardens at Massee Lane Gardens in Fort Valley.  Massee Lane Gardens is also home of the largest collection of Edward Marshall Boehm porcelain sculptures in the U.S. 

In Andersonville, there is the Andersonville Civil War Village, the Drummer Boy Museum and the Andersonville National Historic Site.

In Archery, there is the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm.

In Plains, there is the museum, the old train depot which served as President Carter's campaign headquarters.

And, of course, if President Carter is teaching Sunday School, you can visit Maranatha Baptist Church for a really special experience.

At Habitat for Humanity Global Village and Discover Center, you can visit the world right here in Americus.

The weather is perfect right now for hiking Providence Canyon.

And, although the camellias and sasanquas are just beginning to bloom, the Boehm porcelain collection at Massee Lane Gardens (the home of the American Camellia Society) is well worth the time to see.

A big thank you to Kimberly and Claire for sharing all these photos from their recent adventures in and around Americus.  Now that the rest of you can see how much there is to do here, what are you waiting for?  Give us a call and plan your visit to Americus Garden Inn B&B.  Hope to see you in person, soon.
