Al fresco life in Norcross

It's worth chasing the al fresco life of Georgia by opting to travel to this Southern state in the summertime. Between May and August, little enclaves of the city like Norcross come alive with open-air bars and restaurants, and host all manner of local festivals and parades. This is also the top season for hitting the fun-loving waterparks and botanical gardens of greater Atlanta, when the weather's hot and the school holidays are in full swing.

Norcross: Where the suburbs end and Georgia begins

Norcross is surrounded by the suburbs of greater Atlanta, making it primarily an urban destination. However, you'll only need to travel a little to the north to break out into the backcountry of Georgia State, which is where the winding Chattahoochee River snakes through the landscape, small lakes dot the brooks, and wetlands converge on the roadsides. Immediately to the south is the famous recreation spot of Stone Mountain. There, you'll find lookout points and hiking through pine forests, along with picnic meadows and golf clubs.
