From the Georgia mountains to the coastal barrier islands, Georgia has a lot of opportunities to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. On this episode, we feature a few ways to get away from it all in an environmentally friendly way.

We start with the Coastal Plain Meander, an annual trip down the Savannah River from Augusta to Savannah by pontoon boat. Along the way, we'll learn about the ecology of this great river.

Next, we visit the Hike Inn, a mountain getaway that's accessible only by foot. Finally, we stop by an environmentally friendly "green" hotel on Jekyll Island and explore some ways to enjoy this protected island.
