Griffin's Commercial Historic District is included in the National Register of Historic Places listings for Spalding County. Barnesville was an important hospital site during the American Civil War when local citizens opened their homes to wounded soldiers resulting in a better than average recovery rate. Forsyth's tourist attractions include the area around the Monroe County Courthouse with its collection of buildings designed in a 19th-century architectural style. Roberta was originally called New Knoxville after citizens from the nearby town of Knoxville began moving to the new location. Thomaston was originally laid out so that the county courthouse would be in the center of town with streets running north-south and east-west; the courthouse was financed by selling private lots within the new community. Your Meansville travel trailer rental is your ticket to seeing these historic locations up close and in person.
The Great Outdoors
Still Branch Reservoir is a multi-use preserve that provides shelter for a variety of bird, animal, and fish species. Fishing is allowed with some restrictions, either by boat or from the shoreline in the recreational area. Canoeing and kayaking are also allowed and provide opportunities for observing Canadian geese, bald eagles, deer, and more. The reservoir is stocked with bass, channel catfish, and bream. Park your Meansville RV trailer rental nearby, and you can use it for a photography or nature viewing blind while enjoying a coffee and a hot lunch.
High Falls State Park is the site of what was once a prosperous industrial town in the early 1800s but fell from prosperity after it was bypassed by a railroad around 1880. Today it is an outdoor recreational area where guests can go boating and fishing on the lake, and geocaching along the lakeshore. The park has miles of hiking trails and a miniature golf course. Guests can rent boats, canoes and kayaks, paddleboards and aqua cycles on-site.
Indian Springs State Park is one of the oldest state parks in the U.S. and is a popular recreation destination due to its natural springs. The area was a thriving resort town in the 1800s, and the spring water was used by Indians before that for its healing qualities. Visitors today can enjoy the small historical museum and go hiking or biking on the nature trails. There is a boat ramp and playground, and guests may camp in the park overnight.

Exploring The City
There is a lot to see and do in and near Meansville, starting with the covered bridges that the South is so famous for. There are parks where visitors can swim or kayak, skip rocks, or have a relaxing picnic. There are art studios where local artists create their work; one of these offers art classes, gallery shows, and the occasional rock and gem display. A local ranch offers activities such as rock climbing and zip lining, as well as an opportunity to sleep overnight in a Conestoga wagon (similar to the type used by the area's first settlers). Don't forget to take your Meansville motorhome rental for a spin around the local highways. This is one of the reasons why RV vacations are so unique and so popular.
When it's time for dinner, there are a number of venues to choose from. One family-run Chinese restaurant offers American-style Chinese food. Those looking for a quick and delicious lunch should check out their lunch buffet. Another local diner offers barbecue, sandwiches, and Mexican food with additional side dishes. There is a limited children's menu, and the restaurant supplies its own homemade sauces. Portions are large at most of these establishments (this is Georgia, after all) and you should not be surprised if you can't finish a meal. Have them wrap it up, and you can take it home to your Meansville luxury RV rental for a late-night snack or next day's lunch (if it lasts until then). Vacations were made for eating out under the stars, whether on a restaurant patio or in a lawn chair, so enjoy it while you can.
