The Delight of Dahlonega

By guest writer Maggie Garred.

The first thing I noticed as I drove into the town square was the magnificent North Georgia Mountains. I found Dahlonega, the small town nestled in these mountains, to be delightful at every turn. As I explored Dahlonega, it proved itself to be jovial, festive, and full of activity. I had assumed there would be a town square with nice places to eat, but I soon dismissed my expectations as I stumbled upon art galleries, wine tastings, and so much more.

Photographing Waterfalls: How to Make the Most of Your Camera

North Georgia is blessed with an abundance of water flowing through the Appalachian Mountains. When this water encounters hard caprock or a particularly steep section, the result is often a waterfall or cascade. Waterfalls become a destination for hikers and sightseers. In fact, many of the hiking trails here in the mountains exist only to lead to a waterfall.

Hunchback of Notre Dame @ The Holly

A powerful new play is coming to The Holly in downtown Dahlonega. Hunchback of Notre Dame will dig deep to explore "What Makes the Monster and What Makes the Man". This play contains a deep, philosophical message, but still audiences will enjoy a richly entertaining performance with a huge cast. "Hunchback" is setting a new standard for The Holly -- set design and technical aspects of the production are at higher levels than ever before. And the voices, raining down from the rafters will astonish you. We had a chance to interview technical director and production manager Patrick Rose for this blog. Patrick Rose2
