Helen is better known as “Georgia’s Alpine Village,” and what many think of as Bavaria in the Northeast Georgia Mountains. Adjacent to The Chattahoochee National Forest, there are many areas within driving distance to explore such as Unicoi State Park, Sautee-Nacoochee and the Richard Russell Highway.
This town also has a great variety of events, local businesses, restaurants, shops and golf course. Festivals and special events include a hot air balloon race, Winefest, Volksmarch, Oktoberfest and Christmas parades, Fourth of July fireworks, and Bavarian Nights of Summer.
