Best Roadtrips to Take Before School Starts Again

The song says, “Schools out for summer” but it won’t be long before kids will be heading back to the halls of learning but there’s still time for a road trip, or two, before the school bell rings.

Here at SouthTowne, we’ve got the inventory to help create memories to remember until this time next year when we’ll get you on your way again. Choose from an array of vehicles including vans, trucks, sedans, SUVs, coupes, and hatchbacks in new or pre-owned models.

With your ride of choice ready to go, consider a few of these nearby destinations for family fun road trips around Newnan.

Local Points of Interest

Newnan is home to six districts listed on the National Register of historic areas with outstanding examples of southern architecture from Victorian to antebellum homes. Enjoy an “in town” road trip by visiting each district and its points of interest.

Include the 60 acre Oak Hill Cemetery dating to 1828 as part of your “in town” road trip. It is the historical resting place of Confederate soldiers, Revolutionary War soldiers, World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam veterans.


Dunaway Gardens located approximately six miles from Newnan. This exquisite floral and rock garden was first opened in the early 1900s as a theatrical training venue and popular location for outdoor theater performances. It reopened to the public in 2005. Meander through the 25 acre tract of lush landscape, waterfalls, hanging gardens and spring-fed pools on a self-guided tour.


The Chattahoochee Bend State Park offers a day full of interesting things to do. Take your fishing pole and snag a fish or two and cook on the grill. Hike 11 miles of scenic wooded trails, bring your bicycles, bring your bikes and ride till your heart’s content, or pack a picnic and just relax and enjoy the day. Camping sites are available, so make a weekend of it and do some bird watching or check out the wildlife living in the park.


For the ultimate road trip for the day, make your way to Austell and the 290-acre Six Flags over Georgia theme park.
