Can you say “day-trip”? Gibbs Gardens, in the North Georgia mountains, is a world-class destination waiting for you to discover it. The 300-acre Ball Ground estate became a public space in 2012. Its blend of natural and man-made features consists of 220 acres of landscaped gardens set amid rolling hills and surrounded by majestic forest, spring-fed ponds, streams, waterfalls and bridge crossings. Among its 16 venues are the Japanese, Water Lily, Daffodil and Manor House gardens. The site includes plenty of benches and shade, an art gallery, a restaurant and a gift shop. And parking is free. Stroll, relax and experience the magic. And don’t be surprised if you encounter wandering musicians along the way. Gibbs is an hour to 90 minutes north of Atlanta, depending on your starting point and traffic.
