Located just one hour north of Atlanta and nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the historic community of Dahlonega (pronounced Duh-lon-a-ga), Georgia, is site of the first U.S. Gold Rush in 1828, twenty years before the well-known California gold rush. The excitement and financial success of gold mining created a robust community in the early 1800’s, only to be surpassed by a “new” kind of gold rush in Dahlonega today.
Dahlonega is an award-winning, authentic community with five vineyards and wineries, streets and National Registered Historic Districts of original architecture, local shopping and dining experiences, outdoor recreation and wildlife adventure, and live music and arts. Begin at the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Visitors Center for an overview of the area and directions to local attractions. Dahlonega is a bit of true Americana where the best of nature, arts, and culinary treats await visitors. With the magnificent setting of the North Georgia Mountains as a backdrop, the boundaries of the Chattahoochee National Forest just steps away, and the culture and campus of the University of North Georgia adjacent to the Dahlonega downtown district, Dahlonega is the ideal destination for your next meeting.
Our Georgia Mountains location is centrally located in the Northeast Mountains region easily accessible from nearby cities such as Atlanta and Chattanooga and borders states eastern Alabama, western North and South Carolina, and northern Florida.
