Dahlonega, Georgia (www.Dahlonega.org) is located just 65 miles north of Atlanta in the North Georgia Mountains and is perfect for a winter weekend getaway. A plethora of lodging choices allow visitors to take in the picturesque views of the snow-tipped mountains or enjoy a light dusting of snow without worrying about the chore of shoveling. Milder winter temperatures encourage guests to get outside and hike miles of trails or shop on the square. After a day of exploring, sipping a glass of wine from a local vineyard in front of a roaring fire is the ideal way to unwind. Dahlonega’s history and unique charm make it a great escape, no matter what time of year it is.
