A Visit to the North Georgia Mountains
The sweet smell of apples, brisk breezes, landscapes littered liberally with colorful leaves, overlooks with outstanding views and the peace and the quiet of the hill country of Georgia, yes, these are all components of the scenery of the north Georgia mountains. In fact, it is reasons such as these, as well as many others that many people can’t wait for the fall temperatures so they can head for a weekend getaway at one of the many North Georgia Cabin Rentals. Each year, honeymooners, anniversary celebrations or just people in need of a restful retreat load up and indulge in a few days spent in the majesty of the mountains. Of course, upon arrival, it is nice to have some ideas of where to go for extra “entertainment”. Here are 3 of the places found in the mountain regions of Georgia that are certain to delight.
Helen, Georgia- Perhaps its greatest draw is the mountain scenery. Nestled between 2 state parks (the Chattahoochee and the Unicoi), the town is perhaps most famous for its European flare. You will find an assortment of quaint shops, art galleries, and fine dining as well as outdoor adventures such as hiking, rafting, tubing, fishing and other water related activities.
Dahlonega, Georgia- As the site of the state’s gold mine, this is a great place to bring the family. You can see abandoned gold mines, learn about the tools of the trade and even try your hand at a mining for gold and other precious gems at the area mines.
Cartersville, Georgia- In Cartersville, guests can learn about the state’s earliest residents by spending time at the Etowah Indian Mounds where archeologist have uncovered an assortment of artifacts, visit the Lake Allatoona Visitors Center and Battlefield where some of the Civil War battles were fought or go to the Roselawn Museum which was once the home of the Reverend Sam Jones.
The North Georgia mountains hold many other delights. Why not go on some explorations of your own?
