Welcome to North GeorgiaLocated north of Atlanta, North Georgia spans 30 counties. Known for its picturesque mountain landscape, it is a region of tremendous natural beauty. (Get ready to take lots of photos in front of these scenic vistas!) The area is also home to Helen, GA, an authentic Alpine Village and home of an annual Oktoberfest celebration that draws crowds from all over the country. North Georgia has also become a well-known wine-producing region. Many people come here specifically to taste the finest vintages at the many local vineyards.
Things to See & DoOutdoors adventurers, make sure to pack your hiking boots and binoculars for a trip to North Georgia! The section of the Appalachian Trail that crosses through the local Blue Ridge Mountains is dotted with beautiful flora and fauna as well as many spectacular waterfalls. If you want to relax but don’t want to miss the view, take a drive along the Russell B. Richard Scenic Highway instead. Take advantage of the many regional waterways during your trip. The area is ripe for fishing, kayaking, tubing, and even snorkeling! After you dry off, head to Helen for an unforgettable experience of the Bavarian Alps. You won’t even need your passport!
Where to Eat & DrinkSouthern classics are staples of North Georgia cuisine. For some of the best barbeque, head to Joe’s BBQ in Blue Ridge, GA. Their slow-cooked smoked meats have earned them a reputation as one of the top restaurants around! There is a range of other great options as well. For example, Fortify Kitchen and Bar in Clayton, GA, brings New American fare and craft cocktails to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Area wineries offer great choices for elegant dining. Also, our North Georgia bed and breakfasts provide the hearty morning meals you’ll need before a day of exploring.
Best Time to VisitAutumn is the most popular time to visit North Georgia, and for good reason. The changing colors of the fall foliage are a sight to behold! However, there are wonderful experiences to be had year-round. Take a romantic winter trip and enjoy evenings around the fireplace at a bed and breakfast in the Georgia mountains. When spring hits, venture onto the trails to observe marvelous bursts of blooming flowers. During summer, cool off in one of the area’s lakes or streams, or set up a picnic and relax with a chilled bottle of your favorite local wine!
