Have you ever noticed when traveling on Georgia 400, or simply known as 400, that there are signs which proudly proclaim it as the Hospitality Highway?  I did some research and came across the Hospitality Highway website and liked what I found.  I love the tagline of “Magnolias…Moonshine… Merlot”. The website is a joint effort of many local tourism boards as way to highlight the rich and diverse areas that surround GA 400 as well as let people know that it is also a more scenic and interesting alternative to I-75 and I-85.

Since the gas prices are soaring, there is no better time to take advantage of some backyard site seeing in our own turf.  You can even start in Sandy Springs with the Big Forest Preserve and William Payne Historic House.  Or you can start in Dahlonega and work your way down to Sandy Springs.  Some stops in between on 400 include Dawsonville, Cumming, Alpharetta, and Roswell.  Each of these cities can offer you and your family a great time on a Saturday or Sunday.  The site offers a suggested itinerary to follow to maximize your visit.  Also, there is an arts trail and Mother Nature trail component to this site.  So check it out and visit http://www.hospitalityhighway.com.  Let me know what you think!
