It's Christmas Time in Dahlonega

Christmas, and the entire holiday season, in Dahlonega and Lumpkin County is magical, and national media is noticing. A recent article in Southern Living Magazine – the same Southern Living that called Dahlonega the “Napa of the South” for its burgeoning wine industry, including wineries, wine tasting rooms, and a new Zac Brown-branded distillery – recommended Dahlonega as a Christmas destination not to be missed.

Get Out and Relax, Take a Trip on One of Lumpkin County’s Rivers

Dahlonega is surrounded by excellent canoe and kayak opportunities, offering many days of paddling. Whether you are looking for a leisurely float trip on flatwater or an exciting whitewater run, one does not have to look far from the Historic Dahlonega Public Square! There are two kayak and canoe outfitters only minutes from downtown. Or bring your own boat for access to more remote sections of river.

Hiking in Nature’s Spring Extravaganza…And It’s Free!

Though I love hiking in the winter, with the open woods, open views, lack of reptiles and insects, sparse human contacts, and no sweat (if properly layered with proper clothing), spring is an amazing time to watch nature and the Earth be reborn. This is the prime time of the year to see new life emerging and experience the transformation from stark grey tree trunks and dead leaf litter on the ground to various hues of green and the spectacular palette of spring wildflowers.
