The State of Georgia in the United States sticks out as one of the many places that one must visit in the 21st century. Starting with the beautiful mountainous scenery to the beautiful beaches of the Black Sea, Georgia is the one place where many people wish to visit. But it gets even better. If you are lucky to own a drone, you will take some of the most breathtaking shots thanks to the unmatched views in this great state. We highlight some of the best places to fly a drone in Georgia.
1. Arabia Mountain
The Arabia Mountain is one of the 49 National Heritage Areas around the country. The best thing about the Arabia Mountain is the beautiful granite landscapes and the incredible views that are associated with the dozens of trees and flower species. The place offers a serene environment that is cozy for anyone willing to unwind. But the view from above is what most people would die for. With a drone, you will be able to capture some of the best flowers blooming and also see the mountains from above.
2. Callaway Gardens
The Callaway Gardens sits on 14,000 acres of land and offers some of the best breathtaking views that can only be internalized with a drone. The Gardens teem with beautiful views of a variety of kaleidoscopic flowers that are best captured from above. The area is also home to one of the best golf courses which guarantees you the best view of the area. In addition to that, the gardens have a minimal human population which means you will enjoy taking shots from a significantly low altitude.
3. Panther Creek falls
Besides the fact that Atlanta is landlocked, it has some pretty waterfalls that are comparable to none. One such water body is the Panther Cree falls. It is basically made of a cluster of multi-tiered waterfalls that eventually fall into a pool of clear beautiful water down below. With the help of a drone, you are guaranteed of capturing the shots from above with a clear view of the falls and the clear water below.
4. Etowah Indian Mounds
The Etowah Indian Mounds is arguably one of the most intact culture in the Mississippi. It is made up of six earthen mounds, a plaza and some barrow pits. There are also some several archeological artefacts in this area including hand-carved stone effigies with a touch of some original pigments. The history in this area can best be expressed using a drone view from above where you will capture the beautiful scenery without any human interference.
5. Montaluce Winery
The Montaluce Winery is nestled away in Dahlonega. It is a beautiful structure that offers visitors fresh wines. But the most important aspect of this winery is the breathtaking view it offers of the Georgia Mountains and all the sprawling vineyards that are responsible for the sweet wines. When there are no visitors attending the wine tasting competitions, you will capture the best views of the mountains from above and the vast vineyards that give a wonderful view of the lands. Also, the fact that the yard does not attract a lot of people on a daily basis means you can take the best shots for longer periods.
6. Okefonekee Swamp
Okefonekee swamp is the largest intact freshwater body. It is an area that is home to some of the animals you have probably never seen before. It has some weird looking alligators and cranes that dot the waterbody all year round. Although the area is covered with plenty of vegetation, there is enough space for you to fly your drone at a lower altitude and cover some of the thicket and the vegetation surrounding the swamp.
7. Cumberland Island
You cannot leave Georgia if you have not already visited Cumberland Island. Joined to the mainland by a ferry, you will see some of the most exotic animals and bird species on this island including ancient turtles and some beautiful wild horses roaming the island beaches. Flying a drone over this island offers you great breathtaking views from above with minimal human interference hence guaranteeing you clear shots.
8. Providence Canyon State Park
While a majority of the people in Georgia do not pay much attention to this State Park, the providence Canon has time and again proven to be resilient. The park seats on 1000 acres of land and contains some massive gullies that run up to 150 feet deep thus resembling the real thing. A drone tour of this area means you will have the advantage of capturing some of the images down the Canyon that cannot be captured with naked eyes.
9. Bellwood Quarry
Bellwood Quarry lies about one mile from Atlanta. It is a huge hole that was mined for several years, even centuries. It has recently been filing up with blue waters and has been featured in a variety of films including The Hunger Games and Walking Dead. A drone flight over this quarry means you will be able to capture some of the images and shots not seen by many people. However, it is best advised to hurry before it is completely covered with water.
