Places to Visit While You're
When you come to
Eastman, Georgia, you return to a lost world, where there's nothing
much to do and no place you really must go. Leave your anxieties behind and enjoy a few leisurely days of
quiet sleep (the train usually comes through only once), browse among our books and 1916 magazines, and
indulge in the bountiful Southern breakfasts. Relax by reading in the parlor or playing the
If you must move about, stroll downtown
to shop, drive to the edge of town for some good fishing at our town's 125-acre lake, or play golf at our
golf course among the pines.
Every other month you can enjoy Eastman's
own old time Medicine Show at the local downtown theater. The Magnolia Music and Medicine Show features our local
Medicine Men group along with other local talent. It also showcases various up and coming acts in bluegrass,
country, Americana and Cajun music from all over the southeast. Once you attend a show you will want to come back
again and again.
If you want to get the genuine "farm
feeling," in summer we'll direct you to local orchards where you can pick peaches. In the fall we'll arrange for
you to pick a little cotton.
If you're in the mood for a nice day
trip, we are just over an hour from Plains, Georgia, where you can attend a Sunday School class taught by
President Jimmy Carter. While you're in the "Presidential Pathways" region of Georgia, you may choose to
observe Civil War history and the touching memorials at the P.O.W Museum in Andersonville, Georgia. On your way home you'll want to stop at the fabulous Museum at Leslie to see the finest collection of antique and period telephones in
the world. The incomparable Museum of Aviation is in nearby Warner Robins.
Eastman is in the "Magnolia Midlands,"
just over two hours from Savannah and the Georgia beaches.
