Luxury Holidays To Georgia With Elegant Resorts
Not one to be outshined by the incredible musical heritage of its fellow southern states, Georgia has been referenced in many famous songs, including Otis Reading’s famous hit ‘Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay’ and Gladys Knight’s ‘Midnight Train To Georgia’. Perhaps most famously of all, however, is soul singer and Georgia native, Ray Charles’ dedication to his homeland, ‘Georgia On My Mind’. It is perhaps no surprise that much of the African-American stars of the Swinging Sixties cited Georgia as their inspiration, given the state’s unrivaled position at the heart of the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King Jnr was born in Georgia and the Baptist minister’s influence is still evident today. The Centre for Civil & Human Rights is one of Atlanta’s most popular attractions, while the state’s refined charms are the perfect addition to any luxury tour of America’s Deep South.
