Our travels today will find us in the southernmost foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the quaint town of Warm Springs, GA. Our first stop is at President Roosevelt’s Little White House Historic Site. Built in 1923 while FDR was governor of New York, he had hoped that the buoyant spring waters of the area would help improve his polio affliction. It was here that he developed many of his New Deal programs and in April 1945 suffered a stroke and passed away while posing for a portrait. Lunch will be at the Bulloch House, where Southern Cooking meets Southern Hospitality at its best. We continue this afternoon to The Warm Springs Vineyard & Winery for a tasting. Specializing in Muscadine wines from locally grown grapes that are vinted and bottled on the premises, this rustic winery is a great way to spend an afternoon. After checking into the hotel, enjoy an included dinner this evening. L D

Following breakfast we make our way to Jarrell Plantation, a State Historic Site located in Juliette, GA. Nestled in the red clay hills of Georgia and dating back to 1847, this cotton plantation is one of the last remaining examples of a vanishing culture. With its authentic nineteenth and early twentieth century plantation buildings typical to Middle Georgia, they represent the change from an agricultural to an industrial based economy. B
