The Southeastern States Waterfalls is a region where I'm putting waterfalls that we've seen belonging to the states of South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. So far, we've only seen waterfalls from the states of Georgia, South Carolina, and Mississippi, but the moment we manage to see waterfalls in the other mentioned states, then they'll be included here. I didn't include the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina because we saw enough waterfalls in each of those states to warrant their own pages (even though they're also technically part of the Southeastern United States as well).

As far as Georgia Waterfalls were concerned, we noticed that they existed predominantly in the far north of the state where the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains reside. Prior to our first visit to Georgia, the only things that we knew about the state were its sports scene (e.g. SEC football, ACC basketball, and pro sports teams like the Falcons, Braves, and Hawks as well as the Masters pro golf tournament), CNN, Coca Cola, and even a couple of my favorite bands growing up in the B-52's and REM.

But after going waterfalling in at least the far north of the state, we got to see more of the true essence of the state and its people than through the skewed lens of the corporate products and what we were exposed to through the media. Such waterfalls that shattered our preconceptions included Amicalola Falls and Anna Ruby Falls.

As far as South Carolina Waterfalls were concerned, we explored the state's "upcountry," where most of the waterfalls were found. Like with Northern Georgia, Upcountry South Carolina resided in the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, which provided the steep terrain needed to have waterfalls. And speaking of waterfalls, some of the more interesting ones we saw included the state's tallest in Raven Cliff Falls as well as another associated with Cherokee legends in Issaqueena Falls.

Indeed, I'm sure there's a lot more waterfalling to do in the Southeastern States. In the mean time, have a look at our humbling sampling and see if this won't inspire you explore more of the Empire State of the South.
