Welcome to Adairsville, Georgia, population 5,200. When you need a break from the dog days of summer in the Peach State, stop by the Adairsville Depot History Museum, housed in an old railroad depot, to learn about the town’s role in the Civil War’s Great Locomotive Chase. Then, retreat to Barnsley Resort, a paradise for outdoors enthusiasts with horseback riding, clay target shooting, archery, ax throwing, golf, disc golf, and more. The grounds are also home to a spa, fishing on the lake, and a saltwater pool. And don’t miss the Savoy Automobile Museum in the nearby town of Cartersville, featuring exhibits of art deco cars, racing cars, and woodie wagons.
