The fall season is absolutely one of the best times to visit Northeast Georgia and it’s easy to understand why. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and spacious skies, it’s a great day trip to take with the family or to spend a week with someone special. There are tons of great reasons to visit Georgia during the fall but if we had to name just five, these are the ones we would choose.
1. Helen, Ga.
This is a unique alpine village that’s been built to resemble a Bavarian town. It’s easy to get distracted by all of the fantastic food choices and scenery so don’t forget to pop into any number of shops that highlight local craftsmanship.
So many waterfalls in so little time. Choose from Duke’s Creek, DeSoto Falls, or the ever-popular Anna Ruby Falls. Bask in the majesty of waterfalls found throughout the entire Northeast Georgia mountain range. Sure you can’t see them all in one day, but these will definitely give you a taste.
Northeast Georgia boasts several award-winning wineries. Check out Habersham Winery, one of Georgia’s oldest, or head over to Frogtown Cellars for a wine tasting and some delicious lunch from Panini.
4. Natural beauty
Northeast Georgia is home to the Blue Ridge Mountains and what says ‘fall’ better than nature? Changing leaves and cool temperatures make the mountains excellent on any given day. Take the family out for a day hike or camp in the woods. You’ll feel life slow way down as you’re surrounded by some of the best nature has to offer.
5. Fall fun
Pumpkin patches and corn mazes, anyone? Bring the family down to Uncle Shuck’s farm in Dawsonville and enjoy all kinds of fall fun. Pick out that perfect pumpkin, take a hayride, and give the corn maze a shot. Uncle Shuck’s is fun for the whole family.
Whether it’s just you and your sweetheart or the entire family, if you visit Georgia you are sure to find something that’s perfect for everyone. From hiking and biking to wine tastings and shopping, there are a lot of amazing places to visit in Georgia that will really make everyone happy! If you want to get a taste of Southeast US you can also visit the Montage Palmetto Bluff, in South Carolina, just 23 minutes away from Georgia.
