MUCH TO see & do
Experience our authentic, award-winning, Appalachian Mountains destination of relaxing and educational attractions and fun itineraries. Take your time and take in the sights and sounds of Dahlonega where both healing and culinary arts pamper the soul and the allures and traditions at the University of North Georgia enhance every visit.
From live music, arts, and theater, to local shopping and dining, heritage museums and tours, and seasonal festivals, we invite you to unwind along our trails or on our rivers or in our vineyards. Explore National Forest land and waterfalls, family wildlife excursions to petting zoos and preserves, or the challenge of hunting geo-cached treasures.
Come to the North Georgia Mountains to rediscover Georgia’s golden town with no rush.
The Chattahoochee National Forest provides ample opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and ATV driving. Tubing, canoeing, and kayaking on the Chestatee or Etowah rivers will thrill and challenge enthusiasts of all skill levels.
The famous Appalachian Trail, the footpath that stretches from Georgia’s Springer Mountain to Maine, begins just east of Dahlonega.
Anglers will find world-class trout fishing in the many Lumpkin County creeks, including heavily-stocked Dick’s Creek (Less then seven miles from us), and year-round fishing in the Etowah River and Yahoola Creek.
