For an authentic Southwest Georgia vacation, be sure to also look beyond Camilla and explore the scenic and cultural gems that this region offers. Some interesting places within a relatively short distance of Camilla are Albany, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, and Cairo, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north.
Around 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north of Camilla is Albany, an important regional city which is home to Ray Charles Plaza, Flint RiverQuarium and Albany Museum of Art. If you have time to spare, consider checking out Paul Eames Sports Complex, Theater Albany and Albany Municipal Auditorium before you head back to Camilla.
To really get an understanding of the present, you need to learn a little local history. Southwest Georgia's colorful historic mansions are a great starting point.
No holiday is really complete without a little R&R. Bird watching is one way to relax here and shore fishing is another.
Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time go home, head to the nearest major airport in Albany, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north.
