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.
Crane Creek Vineyards and Franklin Gem and Mineral Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore and learn at Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site and Mark of the Potter. Explore Helen's surroundings by going to Bryson City (Great Smoky Mountains Railroad & River Rafting & Tubing), Fields of the Wood (in Murphy) and Mason's Ruby & Sapphire Mine (in Franklin). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel, see the interesting displays at Expedition:BIGFOOT!, learn about winemaking at 12 Spies Vineyards and Farm, and get outside with Carolina Outfitters.

To see traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Helen trip maker .

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
