Established in 1732, Georgia was the last of the original 13 U.S. colonies. Nearly 200 years later, with nearly 10 million people, Georgia is the 9th most populated state in the country.

From the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains in the north to the central Piedmont foothills where rivers cascade down into the continental plains in the south, Georgia truly has some spectacular natural scenery.
