Well, Georgia, as a state, is very supportive of geocaching. In fact, many of the state parks here place their own caches for people to find. We decided we wanted to do part of the history trail, the forts.
So we got up bright and early on Saturday and hit the road. Our first stop, Fort King George. Structure wise, this was my favorite of the three forts.
It had a pond in front of the actual fort. It was super pretty.
The main structure of the fort as three stories tall and had a basement also. You could go inside the building to see how the people lived inside it.
It had ladders inside.
And a bed.
On the top floor you could look out at the nearby islands. Personally, I loved the view.
In the basement, there was brig.
This is what the buildings and "town" surrounding the main structure looked like.
Next we made our way to Fort McAllister. This was probably my least favorite of the forts. It was a Civil War fort. Essentially the structure itself is mounds that have been built into. The history was pretty cool though.
Our final stop of our Geocaching History Trail was Fort Morris. Fort Morris was absolutely gorgeous and the history of the surrounding town of Sunbury was amazing.
Sunbury was a hub of activity prior to the Revolutionary War. It was basically the wealthiest town in the Midway district. The British took over the town, most likely burning down and destroying all the buildings in the town. Sunbury was the last town taken by the British, in Georgia.

So if you're ever in Georgia, I highly recommend hitting these three forts. The history is so cool. And if you're a geocacher, you get a pathtag for getting the multicache at each place!
