This is a very good figure for this time of year. Sunny days a month are about two-thirds. April pleases with warmth and abundant flowering of trees. Peach orchards are especially good.

For bathing, the water is still cold. Tourists enjoy the view of flowering trees and the famous white dogwood. The fishing season in mountain rivers and hunting in the plain is in full swing.

Summer in Georgia

Summer in Georgia is a low tourist season due to the heat. June is a pleasant transitional month, while July and August are especially hot. Average temperatures in summer are 82 to 92 °F (+28 to +33 °C). During the warm season, tropical storms and tornadoes occasionally occur. They come from the Gulf of Mexico.

Many during this period go to rest in the mountains in the northeast of the state. It's a little cooler here and you can have a great time camping. If you want to sunbathe, it is worth leaving the beach in the middle of the day and looking for sun protection. Summer in Georgia is considered the season of peaches, thanks to which the state received its second unofficial name.
