Warm Spring is located near Pine Mountain, Georgia and used to be a common dwelling ground for those in search of healing from its constant flowing, warm waters. Today, it’s an adorable old-fashioned town, drawing those who want to step away from the big city bustle for a few days.

Good food is the core of any great getaway, and while Warm Springs has only a handful of restaurants, they are perfection. The Bulloch House, with its historic architecture, now welcomes guests to indulge in their
country buffet, overflowing with home-style deliciousness like fried green tomatoes and chicken.

Dinner’s Ready serves up dishes like momma used to make; chicken salad, casseroles, and all those comforting favorites. The building has a cozy, cabin feel, and locals flock to it, so that’s a good sign!

Definitely stop by the Warm Springs Winery to taste their muscadine, red and jalapeño wines. The building is tucked away and can be hard to spot, so keep your eyes open.

Lodging in warm springs is a lot of fun. There are some authentic, rustic choices like The Cottages at F.D. Roosevelt State Park and the Mountain Top Inn and Resort. Both offer super snuggly cabins, while the grounds feature fire pits and access to nearby activities like fishing and hiking. If you are wanting to fully blend into the naturalistic surroundings, pop a tent up and dwell within nature.

Wildlife and nature are at your fingertips in this outdoor-oriented town. Three completely different, enriching wildlife experiences are a must in Warm Springs. The Full Circle Farm Sanctuary is actually a rescue group, rather than a traditional farm, and you can visit and love on their pigs, chickens and other animals that aren’t your typical pets. There’s so much compassion here, and it’s amazing to experience it.

Hiking is also a highly recommended way to connect with native birds and other animals. Take the Wolf’s Den Hiking Trail to cross over different terrains with dramatic views of waterfalls. The trail is fairly leisurely while still providing excitement when you have to cross the occasional stream. Warm Springs Regional Fisheries Center has an indoor exhibit where the kids can peer through windows to see fish, and even an alligator!

Franklin D. Roosevelt followed suit of the Native Americans who used to visit the springs for healing and therapy. Roosevelt hoped he’d find relief from polio. While the Springs, and now historical pools, have not been converted into a lavish spa or anything like that, you can visit the Historic Pools Museum where you can see where people used to soak in the warm waters. While all the pools are now empty, the spring still gently bubbles from the ground, and visitors can place there hands in the water in hopes of a little healing! If there’s anything more notable than all other activities in warm springs, it’s visiting this historic site.
