Stare beauty in the face and birdwatch at one of the best sites in Georgia. Featuring mainly hardwood forests, Beaverdam WMA offers miles of trails for both breeding species and migrants. Many of the trails are driveable and those that aren’t, are easy walkable or bikeable. 

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Monument Park

Capture a glimpse into the child that became a legend of the Civil Rights movement. On April 17, 1944, the Colored Elks Clubs of Georgia held their state convention at First African Baptist Church in Dublin and sponsored an essay contest. A 15 year old student at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta delivered a speech entitled “The Negro and the Constitution.” Little did the audience realize they were witnessing the first public speech by Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., and the start of the Civil Rights Movement.

The 2 mile Historic Bellevue Avenue walking tour in Dublin, GA focuses on the eclectic architecture and influential homes history that correlates with the Downtown Dublin Walking Tour, all while you get in your steps. Bellevue or Belleview, Avenue appeared in public records in the mid-1880s. Before the development of this avenue, it was a dirt road known as”The Old Hawkinsville Wagon Road”, that began through the Fuqua Plantation. Most of these homes arose from the agriculture growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a period of expansion in Dublin’s history. Varied architecture lines the “Millionaire’s Row” giving this “Belle” a beautiful “View”!

As Dublin continues to grow and develop, a motivation to preserve history has arose creating an unparalleled energy and elation for the downtown scenery. Visitors and residents alike can find a thriving and renovated downtown area that offers refreshing green spaces and wide sidewalks to enjoy the walking tour.

MENU

For a modern spin on Southern cuisine, visit Company Supply where farm-to-table combines with open flame for a fresh take on traditional favorites. Located in downtown Dublin, owners Richard and Colby Mascaro renovated a 100 year old dry goods store, installed a spit rotisserie, and fired up their imaginations to modernize the flavors of the Old South. Dishes like black eye pea hummus, chile pimento cheese, and Delta chicken await!

Like a fresh sea breeze, Saltwater Fishery drifted into Downtown Dublin’s historic district, refreshing an old diner and transforming it into a cleanly cozy, yet minimalistic coastal eatery reminiscent of the Cape. With its focus on natural sunlight, the only thing warmer than the ambiance are the smiles of the staff.

Although it features a striking bar that runs the length of the restaurant, Saltwater Fishery heels over quite thrillingly with its focus on creating distinctive dishes like a soft shell crab BLT sandwich, scored flounder, and crab cakes nestled atop a crisp fried green tomato. At the kitchen’s helm is Chef Lorenzo Klink, whose creations are backed by his degree from The American Culinary Institute. Saltwater Fishery nets the freshest ingredients from local and regional suppliers like Georgia Grown shrimp, greens from R&G Farms and local honey from Yoder Farms.

To top it off, Saltwater Fishery has a crow’s nest in the form of a rooftop bar & grill, where live music pairs perfectly with their innovative appetizers and custom cocktails

For truly authentic Mexican flavor, savor La Joya Mexican Restaurant’s mix of fresh, homemade tacos, quesadillas, bistec a la Mexicana, or tortas. With authentic meat options like carnitas, beef, chicken, shrimp, tilapia, and tripe, your taste buds will rejoice in each of La Joya’s homemade creations.

For a taste of Dublin, visit historic Jack’s Hamburgers. Tucked into a tiny storefront in the heart of Downtown Dublin, Jack’s serves up sacks of steamed burgers and dogs reminiscent of those chain guys, but with over 70 years’ experience cooking up these soft sliders, there’s nothing like a sack of Jack’s!
