Rural Tourism Marketing

Explore Georgia works to highlight and promote destinations and activities in Georgia's rural communities. From outdoor adventures to farm stays, Georgia's rural communities are full of unique opportunities for travelers. Rural tourism experiences can be found in 120 counties from the mountains to the plains to the coast.

Georgia visitors travel to rural areas in search of outdoor adventures, to attend festivals celebrating unique cultural heritage, and to taste the goods and even pick produce at our many agritourism farm sites. Following scenic byways, visitors are attracted to public art like murals and outdoor sculpture gardens welcoming them to Georgia's small towns.

Below, browse recommendations for potential rural tourism products that could highlight points of interest, sites of historical significance, outdoor activities, and much more. Use these handbooks to find inspiration for experiences that can attract visitors to rural destinations.
