Clarkesville, Georgia is a wonderful small town just thirty minutes
south of the fabulous Lake Burton. The town offers some great
antiquing, restaurants and walking tours. The Attic
restaurant is awesome for a succulent steak and glass of wine.
Right outside the town square, is the
Old Clarkesville Mill
and Antique Mall where you can browse over 100 vendors in a
half-acre former mill. ....read more
Clarkesville is the Soque River. It is a trout
fisherman's paradise. One must visit Mark of the Potter
in Clarkesville, just to see the size of the trout in this
river. It is an awesome hand-crafted pottery shop by local
artists that overlooks the Soque River. From the balcony
of the store you can feed the trout fish below. You can
not fish there, but you certainly can see the school of trout
that hang out there below the shop. The shop is housed in
an original grist mill and is a sight to see in and of itself.
