A taste of Bavaria right in the heart of Georgia's "Historic High Country," Helen houses just 400 residents but hosts over 200 shops that sell everything from handmade sweaters to Christmas ornaments.
Popular historic sites such as Fields of the Wood and Hurricane Shoals Park & Historical Heritage Village are in your itinerary. Head to Hansel and Gretel Candy Kitchen and Mark of the Potterfor plenty of shopping. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helen: Walhalla (Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel & Oconee Station State Historic Site), River Rafting & Tubing (in Bryson City) and Sky Valley Overlook (in Sky Valley). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Anna Ruby Falls, contemplate the long history of Hardman Farm, browse the different shops at Tanger Outlets, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hickory Flat Pottery.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Helen day trip planner .

In May in Helen, expect temperatures between 78°F during the day and 53°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
