How cool! I’ve been fascinated by Mayan culture for years and always wanted to visit some of their ruins.

These may not be as spectacular as those in Central America but they’re a HECK of a lot closer. I may have to tell Hubby it’s time for a road trip!

A few years ago, I visited the site.

While you're in the neighborhood, see the Etowah Indian Mounds, a 54-acre archaeological site in Bartow County, Georgia south of Cartersville.

"Built and occupied in three phases, from 1000–1550 CE, the prehistoric site is located on the north shore of the Etowah River. Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site is a designated National Historic Landmark, managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources."

More info with several photos:
