Guest will be greeted in the Visitor’s Center Courtyard. We stroll though the downtown area learning the Victorian history of Thomasville. We also start our quail hunt, finding quail hidden throughout town. We make a stop at Sweetgrass Dairy to learn how cheese is made and have a few samples. The group then walks to a local church to see the Tiffany stained glass windows. Our walk continues to Moonspin Pizza, while we learn a little more of the history of Thomasville. Pizza is lunch! Then, we head to The Big Oak, one of the oldest live oak trees east of the Mississippi. There, we get a group picture by the Big Oak Cam. Then we head back to town, learning a little more of the unique history of Thomasville, and hunting more quail. We end at the Bookshelf, where we get out dessert, our Georgia cookie!
