Drive across the state of Georgia and you’ll pass through bucolic pasturelands, a bustling, international city, and miles of sun drenched beaches. Be sure to stop for boiled peanuts (a regional favorite) at a roadside stand along the way. And you may want to catch a lively football game staring the Georgia Bulldogs, the University of Georgia’s much loved team. (Just remember to call them the Dawgs, as the locals do, and you’ll fit right in.)
