Visit the Georgia Mountains

Visit the Georgia Mountains

Have you ever driven through the Georgia Mountains? It is an amazing experience. The drive to Helen through the mountains is breath taking. You have to be comfortable driving around curves and getting a little light headed now and then, but the view is picture perfect every single mile. Then once you get down to Helen, make sure to take your appetite with you because the food is delicious and the sceneray is a place you want to make sure you take in. 

The last time I went down to Helen we went Horse Back Riding and Tubing. The tubing was even $5. Fun for $5. That is what I always look for, or free if I can get it. 

In addition to Helen,there are literally hundreds of awesome spots in the North Ga. Mountains that so few people know about. Small Ma & Pop owned diners, cabin rentals, specialty campgrounds and much more. Stop by and see what to do in the North Ga Mountains.
