We all love Instagram, especially sharing our love for artsy photos and the perfect poses! Whether you like scenic shots, food pics or you’re always ready for a #selfie, we’ve identified 9 great spots in Liberty County that will have you getting insta-famous fast!
A park right in the heart of Hinesville!? Well why not? This picturesque retreat is located right off of Highway 84 and is open dawn until dusk every day. With tons of events happening every month, whether you want to get a shot of a local festival musician, the white fences left from when there were horses on the property or yourself lying in the lush green grass, we’re sure that the photos will be fabulous!
You can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned food pic for your insta feed. I mean who doesn’t love seeing what someone else is about to enjoy and imagining the feast you can soon have? Some of our fan favorites are: the Sunbury Crab Company, y’all that fried shrimp Caesar salad is not only picture-worthy, it’s drool worthy! Or the street tacos at Rodeo Mexican Restaurant, not only do they make for a great picture, the flavors are bold and sure to please! And who can forget Good to Go Jamaican? Gracious the jerk chicken, rice & peas and plantains not only taste amazing, it makes for great insta-licousness!
This insta-worthy destination has some amazing sunrises and who wouldn’t want a bit of water in the background of an insta-sensational pic? This public dock often has fishermen on it, catching everything from whiting to sharks, as well as some folks who just hang out to catch some rays in the coastal Liberty County sunshine. You can definitely bank some photos for a #latergram!
Yes, there are “private property” signs, these are for your protection in case we’re not open (we observe actual business hours) and you wanna traipse across the property. Just to keep us all safe, we would rather be around while you’re taking your Southern Belle selfie, but do we have to be there, heck no! The antebellum architecture, sweeping Live Oaks draped in moss and green grass make for some impressive photos.
It’s really not hard. Dirt roads are still in abundance in our county. Places like Barrington Ferry, Old Sunbury Road, Cay Creek and more. All make amazing spots for photos. Whether it’s one of the beautiful tree canopy, the sun setting across a field, wildlife crossing your path or your foot prints in the sand, we’ll guarantee some insta-success!
Believe it or not Liberty County is a bird lover’s paradise! Part of the Colonial Coast Birding Trail we have so many species it’s hard to keep up. Hummingbirds, egrets, buntings, Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, the Roseate Spoonbill, and on and on. You might need something more than a cell phone to capture these beauties, but a regular camera is well worth the effort.
Cause who doesn’t love a good scenic shot, especially if that #instasun moment is on the Georgia coast?! Head down to Jones Creek Park on Isle of Wight Road in Midway for a gorgeous sunrise right over the water or Eve Park in Sunbury for a gorgeous sunset! Both of the public docks in Riceboro and Sunbury also have great sun/water views! All 4 are open to the public and run by the Liberty County Rec Dept.
Some of our favorite photographers, Joanna Ng, Katrina Barrow and Sabine Branstetter have taken some #droolworthy photos in the last year in downtown Hinesville. A burgeoning scene to be sure, it has come a long way in recent years. These fabulous photogs, however, shoot next to vintage cars, ivy covered walls and basically anywhere an artistic eye can find, makes you think about things you pass by every day in a #creative light!
Cause who doesn’t want their #selfie taken with a great piece of art!? Seriously some of the amazing pieces in the exhibits could make you think you were somewhere else. Local talent is featured every month in the gallery and at no cost to the artist. The HAAC works tirelessly to make sure the arts scene is visible in the community. They even did the first mural in Liberty County, and they’re working on another! Wonder what it will be?
