About The Perry Area CVB Powered By Docstoc
						
    Welcome
    Nestled in the heart of Georgia lies the quaint,
    but thriving city of Perry. Founded in 1821
    through a treaty with the Creek Indians, Houston
    (pronounced “Howston”) County extended from
    the Ocmulgee River on the eastern boundary
    to the Flint River on the western boundary.
    Incorporated in 1824, Perry received its name
    from Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry for his
    triumph at Lake Erie in the War of 1812.

    Originally called “Wattsville,” Perry is now
    known to many as the “Crossroads of Georgia”
    because of its location at the intersection of
    Highways US 341, US 41, GA 127, and I-75.
    This prime location has encouraged tourism
    throughout Perry’s history, and has been
    instrumental in making it the area’s number one
    industry. The New Perry Hotel still portrays a
    vital part of the city’s heritage as it has served
    travelers since it was known as the Cox Inn dating
    back to the early 1800s. Perry’s rich history and
    architecture can be further explored through our
    walking/driving tour of significant sights which
    begins at the New Perry Hotel.

    Today, Perry remains a vibrant community
    offering its visitor many exciting options of things
    to see and do in the area. Since 1990, Perry
    has been the home of the Georgia National
    Fairgrounds & Agricenter which hosts over
    900,000 visitors a year through its vast array of
    events including the Georgia National Fair held
    every October and the Georgia National Rodeo
    held every February.

    We invite you to visit our community and spend
    some time getting to know us. We know you’ll
    enjoy your visit and leave feeling like part of the
    Perry family.

      Area Attractions


The Road Less Traveled
Perry is a proud partner with three scenic Georgia
trails. While staying in Perry, visitors can enjoy daily
excursions along the roads less traveled and explore
our region’s beautiful scenery and attractions.

PEACH bLoSSoM TRAIL
Many peach orchards can be found along
Georgia’s Peach Blossom Trail in Central Georgia.
The trail parallels Interstate-75 along state highway
341 from Mcdonough to Perry. This region produces
about 100 million pounds of peaches each year and
is home to nearly 1.6 million peach trees. It’s no
wonder that this area is the state’s largest
commercial peach-growing region. Visit www.
historicgeorgia.org/trails for more information or
request a brochure at the Perry Welcome Center.

GEoRGIA’S ANTIquES TRAIL
Are you a relic hunter? do you like aged collect-
ibles? If so, then Georgia’s Antiques Trail, a loop
through 16 picturesque communities in Georgia’s
Historic Heartland, is the journey for you. Visit www.
historicgeorgia.org/trails for more information or
request a brochure at the Perry Welcome Center.

ANDERSoNvILLE TRAIL
The Andersonville Trail is a scenic, historic 75-mile
loop off I-75. Travel through quaint Antebellum and
Victorian towns, as well as through the picturesque
rural countryside filled with pecan and peach
orchards. From Perry, travel Highway 224 to
Andersonville and Plains (home of former US
President Jimmy Carter). The trail actually begins in
Warner Robins and continues to Perry, Marshallville,
Montezuma, Andersonville, Americus and Plains.
