Georgia's urban areas can be full of surprises for outdoor adventurers. All it takes is a little get up and go. Most of us know about outdoor destinations like Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank Science Center and Stone Mountain, but there are also innumerable hiking trails, bird watching forests, trout fishing and great paddling are all within a short drive of the city.
This week Georgia Outdoors features The Elatchee Nature Science center near Gainesville, Fernbank Science center in Atlanta and The Buford Hatchery where families can help restock Georgia's streams. Next time viewers want some after work recreation, they can take a short drive to the Chattahoochee, or even Piedmont Park for a little fishing.
