The clay launches into a narrow pass of trees, which gives shooters only seconds to track it before the surrounding brush and slivers of sunlight obscure their aim. Located in the foothills of the Georgia Mountains, Etowah Valley Sporting Clays' forested shooting courses give sportsmen natural hunting scenarios to complement the simulated targets. Golf carts transport guests over graveled paths to shooting courses such as two six-station walking courses, two 13-station courses, and a five-stand course. All stations are set according to progressive difficulty to challenge all experience levels, and instructors help marksmen improve their technique while teaching them the difference between hunter's plaid and lumberjack plaid. For guests who want to test their skills in the field, the staff organizes outings such as the Clays and Feathers package, a full-day experience that includes a morning of clay shooting, lunch, and an afternoon of game-bird hunting with a guide and dog at Etowah Valley Game Preserve. Beyond the shooting courses, Etowah Valley Sporting Clays encompasses a 3-D archery course with targets such as turkey and wild boar. Built with rustic, knotty lumber and exposed ceiling joists, a 3,400-square-foot Amish-inspired clubhouse encourages guests to relax and gives them access to full kitchen and gas grill. For frequent visitors, the staff operates a membership program.

At the summit of Mount Yonah, hikers bask in the dying sunlight and soak up views of verdant foothills that span the horizon. Before the sun dips below the peaks, they meander back down the craggy trail toward Habersham Vineyard, where they can toast to a wholesome day of hiking. This scenic hike is one of dozens of possible routes led by Georgia Wine Hiking’s knowledgeable guides. They draw upon their knowledge of the region to showcase the best trails and wineries during daylong tours. Based on each group’s fitness level, interest, and ability to tolerate photo-bombing sasquatches, guides can plan easy-going three-hour hikes around Stone Mountain, or embark instead on a 10-hour journey up the steep foothills of Standing Indian. Regardless of the tour route, guides take time to point out local flora and fauna, and energize groups’ with a light lunch.

Paradise Rental Boats carefully curates fleets of Yamaha, Bayliner, and Sun Tracker boats, so that sun-kissed riders can jet across the sparkling waters of Indiana’s Lake Monroe and Georgia’s Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona at their leisure. The company's vessels range from party barges and yachts—which hold groups of up to 26—to the smaller, two-person WaveRunner, whose highly responsive steering suits drivers trying to chase down and catch their fish dinner. Onboard radios and CD players let mariners groove to their favorite tunes, and the company also rents optional accessories for water sports, such as wakeboards, water skis, and artificial bait for licensed fishermen.
