Hidden Playgrounds, Beautiful Trails, and Unique Museum at Botanical Garden in Athens, GA

Posted on |

With 313 acres of gardens, trails, and even play areas, the State Botanical Garden of Georgia are a must-see if you’re in the Athens, Georgia area. And it’s under two hours from Greenville, SC.

As a garden, flower, and plant lover, I was excited to check out the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, which is part of the University of Georgia. I’ve somehow managed to convince my kids that botany is cool so they were also excited to see what was in store for us there. Turns out, there were a lot of neat things to explore here and many unexpected finds at these neat gardens in Athens, Georgia, less than two hours from the Upstate of SC.
