Helen

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.
Head to A Jones Company and Skylake Galleriesfor plenty of shopping. Take a break from the city and head to Dry Falls and Cherohala Skyway. Change things up with these side-trips from Helen: Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association (in Blue Ridge), Cades Cove (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Ocoee). There's still lots to do: try to win big at Casino at Harrah’s Cherokee, take in the awesome beauty at Whiteside Mountain, take in the dramatic scenery at Bridal Veil Falls, and take in the exciting artwork at Hickory Flat Pottery.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read our Helen day trip website .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, McGhee Tyson Airport and Asheville Regional Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in May, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
