The mountains of North Georgia contain more than the Appalachian Trail. Up here you’ll find some of the most beautiful natural formations in the east. Not only is the area the former home to the Nacoochee and Cherokee Indians, host to countless awe-inspiring waterfalls and Tallulah Gorge, one of the most spectacular canyons east of the Mississippi but it is also the birthplace of the Cabbage Patch Kids.
If that doesn’t meet your discriminating tastes, you might like to visit the Alpine Village of Helen. We stayed in a mountaintop log cabin with Cabin Rentals of Helen that overlooked the Innisbruck golf course. The three bedroom home was very private and overlooked the best sunset views in Helen.
But the real fun was in the valley below where the entire village appears to be imported from Germany. Gingerbread accents and hand painted scenes adorn the classic white walls in this bavarian styled town center.
It is little more than an hour north of Atlanta and perfect for a weekend getaway any time of year.
