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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Horseback Riding Tours and Helton Creek Falls. Get outdoors at Raven Cliff Falls and Toccoa Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Helen side-trips: Sapphire (Gorges State Park & Whitewater Falls) and Black Rock Mountain State Park (in Mountain City). And it doesn't end there: trek along Dukes Creek Falls Trail, look for gifts at Hansel and Gretel Candy Kitchen, take in the exciting artwork at Hickory Flat Pottery, and shop like a local with Mark of the Potter.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helen road trip planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Helen can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
