When you have chosen the Alpharetta area as your home, you are in a great spot to visit the North Georgia mountains for a day or weekend trip. There is no shortage of things to do and places to go within an hour’s drive of Atlanta, in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. Whether you want to go for a hike, pick apples, or simply take a scenic ride to see the leaves change, north Georgia is a remarkable place to witness the beauty of nature in all its splendor.
Blue Ridge – Tucked away in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge offers excellent fishing, scenic drives, and farm-fresh produce. One of the best ways to experience Blue Ridge is to rent a room in a local mountain lodge or cabin for a more secluded retreat. For hiking, head to the Benton Mackaye Trail near Highway 60 and hike to the Toccoa River suspension bridge. Top restaurant recommendations here are Harvest on Main, which specializes in farm-to-table dinners, and Black Sheep for Southern fusion food and moonshine. If the moonshine is a bit too strong for your taste, head to the Fannin Brewing Company for locally crafted German-style beers.
Dillard – Dillard is a Georgia town surrounded by mountains and also a favorite spot for outdoor recreation. It’s easy to spend your weekend here hiking, biking, and fishing while being surrounded by peace and quiet. To treat yourself and really relax, book a room or cottage at the Dillard House, which is a family-owned lodge in the country. There’s an excellent onsite restaurant here for indulging in old-fashioned Southern comfort food as well.
Dahlonega -Dahlonega is a long-standing favorite mountain town in Georgia because there is so much to see and do here. You can visit the Gold Rush historic sites, sip local wines at the nearby vineyards, and eat at some amazing restaurants. Popular wineries here are Wolf Mountain Vineyards and the Montaluce Winery. Dahlonega also has a really nice public square in town where you can visit shops like Outlaw Jerky and Trail Grub, the Dahlonega General Store, and Paul Thomas Chocolates. The town is also only about an hour from Atlanta, so it’s easy to get here or take a side trip here on a weekend.
