Pack a tent and marshmallows too! Enjoy the beautiful wildlife of River Bend WMA. Discover the perfect campsite, put on your hiking shoes, birdwatch, or throw out a line just steps from I-16. Reconnect with wide- open spaces, stargaze, and just breathe it in.
2. Hook, Line, & Sinker
Reel ‘em in at Hugh Gillis Public Fishing Area every Wednesday through Sunday from sunrise to sundown. From fishing to boating, Hugh Gillis offers a quiet respite. Stock up with hooks, lines, and sinkers at Oconee Bait & Tackle, where the staff will stuff your tackle box with all you need to catch a fish worthy of fibbing about.
3. Open Air Market
Stock up for summer grilling at the Market On Madison farmers market each Saturday at 7:30 AM through October. Get outside and grill up Georgia Grown veggies and fruit for the best shish kebobs, sides, and salads.
4. Park It
Not all of paradise has been paved. Escape with the birds and the bees to Stubbs Park where a butterfly garden and free-flowing natural creek await discovery. Pack a picnic, toss a Frisbee, and take a turn on the swings. This historic park is steps from Downtown, where local eateries and boutiques will give you an adventure of another sort.
