This Week: Southern Rivers South (Albany)

On this week’s episode of Georgia Traveler, it’s off to Georgia’s Southern Rivers region. Albany is our destination city where we visit the Riverfront Park, the Riverquarium and the Parks at Chehaw. We enjoy a performance of Swamp Gravy, the famous folk life play in Colquitt. David Zelski explores Mule Day in Calvary. We survey the largest swamp in North America and experience a trip back in time at the Agrirama in Tifton. And Phil Proctor discovers downhome delights at Nothin’ Fancy.
