Summer is almost here, which means it's time to escape Tampa's humidity and loads of tourists.

These three Airbnbs are near Pine Mountain, a town in Georgia about 6.5 hours from Tampa that has tons of hiking and small-town charm.

  • Hike your way through FDR state park or head to the resort area of Callaway Gardens, which has walking and bike trails, a lakefront beach, golf and other outdoor activities.

Editor's note: The headline and story have been corrected to show the Airbnbs are near Pine Mountain (not Pine Lake), which is 6.5 hours (not 6 hours) from Tampa and is not really considered a mountain town.
