DIY travelers will love getting even further off the beaten track and visiting the other cities, towns and villages around Cairo. If your schedule allows it, head 13 miles (21 kilometers) to Thomasville. Here you can pay a visit to the Thomas County Museum of History and Pebble Hill Plantation.
When you are ready to venture further afield visit the nearest regional area. Tallahassee is around 30 miles (48 kilometers) away and features sights such as Odyssey Science Center, Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science and Meginnis-Monroe House. Florida A&M University, Mission San Luis de Apalachee and Florida Governor's Mansion are a number of other visitor attractions definitely worth visiting for those who find themselves with time to spare.
Each place offers a specific history and this area has plenty of its own stories to tell. The historic mansions in these parts provide a great snapshot to the past.
Relax like the locals in Southwest Georgia. Go bird watching and shore fishing while you are in the area.
Sadly, vacations can't last forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Tallahassee, 35 miles (56 kilometers) away.
