Plains Depot


The small Georgia town made famous by President Jimmy Carter is your next stop after Americus on the Sam Shortline Excursion Train. While in Plains, browse President Carter’s campaign museum and an antique mall, then buy a bag of peanuts from local merchants. Visit the Plain Peanuts to try their famous PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM. A must place to visit is the Plains Inn recently refurbished and tastefully decorated.
