Enjoy the mild Southern climate of Georgia in comfortable walking shoes, layered outfits and a mix of beach and upscale casual ware. Although the temperatures are warm, everywhere you go is heavily air conditioned, so you may want a light jacket. If you are golfing, proper attire is required including collared shirts for men. Bring a swimsuit, shorts, sunglasses, sunscreen, sandals and casual outfits you can dress up with some fun accessories…or better yet buy some accessories on your vacation for wearable memories of your trip!
