Appling County, Georgia was created in December 1818 through an act of state legislature. Appling was named after the 1812 war hero, Colonel Daniel Appling of Columbia County. Appling is a great tourist attraction as I had a great time venturing this place. Today I will reveal some of the best tourist attractions in Appling Georgia.
If you like physical activities and adventure then this is the right place. You can do camping around the place on your own but I was provided with the camping utilities. We had fun on beaches, boating, and going fishing in the lake. I went on to catch a lot of bass on my first try. After that, we went for an adventurous long nature trailing and hiking in the woods. A clean place with very friendly staff will add peace to the existing fun.
Columbia County Fair
This event is done twice a year, in April and November. The funfair and foods are the main attractions in this event. My kids just love the place and had so much fun. There are other events like a golf tournament, a Christmas parade in December, charity events for multiple organizations, and scholarship pageants Don't worry about parking your car because there are 1000 available parking lots around the place.
Lights of the South
Bright and exciting 115 acres of a lights display that covers almost everything in this place. I had a great time with family and friends here. We took the hayride (tractor) through the lighting but there is an option to walk through the trail. There is 2 large fire pit that you can use to warm up. There are food trucks for your hunger but I had a fun opportunity to roast the marshmallows myself. One of the most exciting places in Appling Georgia.
Bubbles or Not
This is a great place for divers that want to learn and those who are experts and craving some adventure. They offer diving courses from entry-level up to professional level. The scuba diving tour is random and can be chosen by us. Some of the places are Blue Grotto, Key Largo, and shark dive. I did learn the entry-level course and went on a scuba nearby. The staff and trainers are not only fun but will make sure you are comfortable and safe.
Augusta Canal National Heritage Area
You will learn all the history of Augusta in 2 ways, either through the Augusta Canal boat tour or Augusta enterprise mill. The boat tour was very exciting with a musician on board who accompanied us with great music from old to new and the tour guide went on with all the details through this one-hour ride. At the enterprise mill, they will show a movie on the history of Augusta, exhibits on the lifestyle of people in Augusta, A replica of the real canal, a working generator that shows the process and piping that brings the water.
International Disc Golf Center
I love golf and I love frisbee throwing. So I decided to go to this center where both the game will be combined into one. They have 3 golf courses and an air-conditioned room which I let my family stay in as my friend and I went on a game of disc golf. One reminder, always book in advance because the place can be full very fast due to the demand.
