Best Instagram Shot Spots in Northeast Georgia


Best Instagram Shot Spots in Northeast Georgia

Best Instagram Shot Spots in Northeast Georgia: We own and operate Beechwood Inn Bed and Breakfast in Clayton, Georgia. We are always looking for ways to entertain our guests and expand their opportunities to enjoy themselves during their visit to our corner of North Georgia. Over the years we have collected a number of locations offering some great opportunities to make Instagram memories. Here are few we go back to over and over – looking for the mood, setting sun or unusual approach to making our friends a little envious or our location.  None are a long drive from Beechwood Inn. We are in the very northeast corner of Georgia, so we consider locales in nearby North Carolina and South Carolina for inclusion in the article.

Number 1: Pickens Nose, NC: Not a long drive from Beechwood Inn. Directions: Take highway 441 north from Clayton, GA to the community of Otto, NC. Turn left onto Coweeta Lab Road. Drive several miles up this road and you will see the Coweeta Hydrologic Lab on your right. Continue on past the lab and the road becomes a gravel Forest Service road 83. Continue up this road for several miles and you will come to a sign for Pickens Nose. There is a parking area here.

Number 2: Sunflowers in Long Creek, SC: It is just a short drive to Long Creek, SC, but to catch the sunflower fields as peek bloom is pretty special. Time your trip to capture some great cloud formations before an afternoon rain. Turn right on State Road S-37-538 as you enter South Carolina from Clayton, GA. Go about 1 mile and the field is on the right.
