Historic Towns
 
in the North Georgia Mountains of Appalachia

The North Georgia Mountains region of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has many quaint historic towns that cater to the residents, as well as visitors.  In many of these towns you'll find antique stores, cafes, wine tasting rooms, local artists galleries, gift shops and more.  The vendors in these towns are quite hospitable, so be sure and ask them about current happenings in the area and their favorite restaurants. 

The most visited towns are Dahlonega, Helen and Clarkesville because they have larger pedestrian friendly areas.  However, there are interesting must-see destinations in almost every town. For instance, one must visit Dillard to eat at the legendary Dillard House and to visit their petting farm and stay in one of their chalets.  Don't forget to shop in the many antique shops their as well.

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

Near 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.
