There is a reason why so many songs are written about the great state of Georgia. It is warm in the summer and chilly in the winter without getting too cold. It is full of lush green grass and mossy trees. Georgia represents everything wonderful and beautiful about the south -- and the quaint community of Sunny Side has all these things and more!
If you decide to visit Sunny Side, located south of Atlanta, you will have plenty to do. Although there are not many attractions in town, Sunny Side is located near plenty of great outdoor activities.
If you want a fun time in a beautiful forest, head to one of the huge forest preserves nearby. You and your pup will be able to get plenty of time outdoors, engaging in healthy, active activities such as walking, hiking, fishing, and more.
If you ever get bored from all the time out in the wilderness, head to one of the largest cities in the country -- Atlanta. Often referred to as "Hotlanta", this city has everything you or your pup could dream of! It is full of delicious, world-famous restaurants, fun nightlife and plenty of dog-friendly activities. They don't call it the "capital of the South" for nothing!
Although Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge is an hour away from Sunny Side, the drive is worth it. The park is approximately 35,000 acres in size, full of beautiful scenery, wildlife and plenty of things to do. This outdoor paradise is especially wonderful for people who love fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities. And that goes for all pups, too! Just make sure you keep your pooch on a leash and take some doggie poop bags with you. Plus, you may want to take a camera to take some gorgeous photos of the great outdoors with your adorable pup.
If you drive only ten minutes from your home in Sunny Side, you will arrive at the Lake Talmadge neighborhood in Hampton, Georgia. Lucky for you, this neighborhood has two parks. If it is a hot day, the first place you need to go is the Hampton City Park, also called McBrayer Park. This park is located in the center of the city and has plenty of playground equipment and even a splash pad! Next, you should visit M.L Coley Park. This park has a baseball field, which is usually empty, so there is plenty of room to run and play. Just make sure you keep your pup leashed at both parks, since they're not designated dog parks.
