I75, Fort Myers, Florida to Michigan -Tifton, Georgia offers a taste of history

Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village in Tifton, Georgia at exit 63B is a great diversion on a quick trip between Florida and the north on Interstate 75. The cost is negligible with so many discounts and free entries a person is bound to qualify for one. The open air museum takes the visitor back in time to the early farming days including a general store with actual, historically correct items for sale. Informative and gracious guides in traditional dress provide personal tours or one can wander alone through the historical buildings and grounds. On Saturday, a train makes the trip a little easier. It's a great place for that walk needed on a long drive.

At the right time of year, artisans can be seen engaged in the work of the time. It's the Williambsburg of Georgia. In addition to wandering through the Historic Village, the Agriculture Museum is a treasure trove of artifacts and information about the days of family farms. Historic buildings have been carefully preserved. For a maximum fee of $7.00, it's a true bargain worth a short visit or a full day with easy Interstate 75 access.
