As the popular saying goes, “April showers, bring May flowers” and in Georgia, we’ve certainly been experiencing surprise midday showers and late-night thunderstorms. Thankfully, the summer heat is fast approaching along with colorful gardens, so now is the perfect time to plan some warm weather adventures near your home in Douglas County

Small Town Charm With Lavish Amenities 

Our beautiful communities Palmer Falls and The Estates at Hurricane Pointe in Douglasville and The View at Groover’s Lake in Lithia Springs are located in cities that love to pamper their residents with a wide variety of fun things to do. Citizens and tourists alike love to explore the 8,000 acres of recreational space at some of their most popular sites including Sweetwater Creek State Park, Douglas County Butterfly Trail, and Clinton Nature Preserve. More unique outdoor experiences are also available at Deer Lick Park, Boundary Water Recreational Park, and L&R Alpaca Haven Farm, a family-owned facility that is open for special events and tours.

Brimming with small-town charm, Douglasville is an ideal place for camping adventures of all kinds– including popular glamping sites for campers who like to sleep under the stars in style! Plan a stay at the Sweetwater Creek Yurt Village or Chattahoochee Bend State Park as the seasons change.  

Culinary Adventures

We love a small town with a big appetite. Exploring the city of Douglasville requires unique dining experiences and luckily that isn’t hard to find. Check out local restaurants like Fabiano’s Italian Restaurant, Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe, Red Velvet Bistro, and Taste of Thai for delicious favorites from around the world. 

One-of-a-Kind Activities 

Activities only found in Douglasville are popular among residents. After your tour of one of our Douglas County homes, visit the Selfie Paradise Museum for unique photo opportunities that leave a lasting impression. Looking to spend more time outdoors? Bring your tennis racket or a set of golf clubs to West Pine Golf Club or the Tennis Courts at Hunter Park– perfect places for competitive solo recreation or group strolls through lush manicured lawns.
