To the guides at Southern Beer Tours, every sip of local beer can be an exciting experience. "We enjoy highlighting the big guys, the smaller guys, and the start-ups," says the company's president. As guides point out on their tours, Georgia boasts more than 20 local breweries, and numerous other start-ups expected to yield fresh brews in the near future. The guides don't stick to one route or landscape, either; they constantly rotate the regions they tour in order to visit different breweries, pubs, and the region's naturally-occurring beer geysers.

Most people probably don't consider the television to be a danger to their fresh bouquet of flowers. But because it's an appliance that gives off heat, it can easily wilt or dry out blooms. This is the kind of expert advice doled out by the women of Valentin Occasions, who in their years of flower-shop ownership have perfected the challenging art of ensuring flowers last as long as possible. Their experience has made them adept at handling a variety of jobs—they can put together everything from bridal bouquets and corsages to birthday vases and casket sprays. They also deliver weekly to businesses after an onsite visit to determine the appropriate size and shape for reception or boardroom bouquets.

The Antebellum Trail Pilgrimage invites visitors to embark on self-guided treks through the region's rich heritage along a 100-mile trail connecting the seven historic Georgia communities of Athens, Watkinsville, Madison, Eatonton, Milledgeville, Old Clinton, and Macon. Four house museums open their doors to curious guests in Athens, and in Milledgeville, history buffs can stroll through Georgia's Old Capital museum, nestled within the same building where state legislators voted to secede from the Union. More historic sites abound in Ideville, which hosts the preserved battlefield upon which soldiers fought the Battle of Griswoldville, and historical reenactments thrive in Old Clinton, where spectators can witness a restaging of the federal occupation of Clinton every first weekend in May. Attendees compelled by more recent history can stop by the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House in Macon, which salutes the artists and the band of whistling peaches that got their start in the state. To help visitors choose between all of the possible attractions, Antebellum Trail Pilgrimage also suggests three must-sees in each community.

Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.

Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.

Though The Odyssey has earned acclaim for documenting history’s most iconic journey, Mary Charles Howard has won over her customers by focusing on a more commonplace one—food’s journey from the farm to the table. As the owner of Athens Food Tours, an establishment named the best in Athens by Tripadvisor, she and her team guide gourmands to local eateries such as The Grit, Agua Linda, Kelly’s Jamaican, and Copper Street Brew Pub. Their walking tours send peripatetic palates through specific neighborhoods, such as Prince Avenue, the downtown area, or Normaltown, named for its distinction of being the only area to have successfully banned talking dogs. On each tour, guests mingle with chefs and sample their concoctions, but guides also incorporate factoids on non-culinary topics such as history, local music, and architecture.
