Georgia | Taste the many flavors of Georgia
Georgia offers many types of culinary specialties that are unique to our state…more than just the peaches for which we are known. Whether you experience a talented chef, taste at a winery, or sample cuisine from a local restaurant with some specialties of its own, Georgia boasts a culinary vacation that will satisfy anyone.
Step into Georgia’s backyard and learn how our fresh foods are produced. Start off your Georgia food journey at the Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville. This 140-acre dairy is a must-see for any cheese-lover. A collection of 150 goats and 30 Jersey cows produce the milk used to make this dairy’s award-winning artisanal cheeses. Continue your Georgia cheese adventure in Swainsboro at Flat Creek Lodge. Flat Creek produces prized cheeses and offers a dairy tour in addition to overnight lodging and outdoor activities that include hunting, fishing, and skeet shooting.

A Georgia food itinerary would not be complete without a visit to the beautiful Georgia coastline, where eating fresh seafood is a way of life. In Brunswick is Credle’s Adventures, where you can hop aboard the Lady Jane shrimp trawler. The crew on the Lady Jane will help you catch wild shrimp and boil it for you while you’re still in open waters!
Many of Georgia’s restaurants also carry food from local farms including Cakes and Ale in Decatur, Cha Bella in Savannah, Farm 255 and Five & Ten in Athens, La Maison on Telfair in Augusta, The Blue Bicycle in Dawsonville, The Farmhouse at Serenbe, and The Hil in Chattahoochee Hill Country and others.
Plan your visit around one of our many local festivals that celebrate some of Georgia’s finest foods including the Vidalia Onion Festival in Vidalia, Shrimp & Grits: The Wild Georgia Shrimp Festival on Jekyll Island, Georgia Blueberry Festival in Alma and more.
