Rich in both Appalachian culture and stunning natural areas, Dahlonega, Georgia is a perfect getaway. Dahlonega is known as the “Heart of the North Georgia Mountains.” And though it’s only an hour away from the bustling pace of Atlanta, Dahlonega’s old world charm makes it seem worlds apart.
The site of the first major US gold rush, Dahlonega features many gold mine attractions. Take an underground tour through the tunnels at the Consolidated Gold Mines, one of the nation’s largest and oldest gold mining operations. Or explore the history of the rush above ground at the Dahlonega Gold Museum.
Hike through the lush green woods of Chattahoochee National Forest, or grab a pole and try your luck with the trout at Etowah River. Pack your camera for a visit to one of the highest waterfalls east of the Mississippi or hike along the Appalachian Trail.
To catch some live bluegrass, or just about any other genre of music for that matter, head to the venues at the Public Square. Finish the evening right with a southern style dinner and a nice glass of Georgian wine.
