One of the enjoyable aspects of a journey along I-75 is the abundance of interesting places and attractions you can visit within just a few minutes of an interstate exit. Yet many travelers don't take advantage of this because either they don't know they are there, or . . . they are fearful of becoming lost in unfamiliar territory.

In this section we provide 22 colored maps of enjoyable side trips you can take - perhaps as a brief evening jaunt after checking into your motel or as a short excursion in your day's drive. Wineries, beauty spots, historic battlefields and forts, museums . . . even Colonel Sanders' original kitchen where he invented his famous chicken meal with the secret herbs and spices . . . they are all here.
