Area Activities

There are a wide array of activities in our area for people of all ages. Fannin and Gilmer County are known as the gateway to the Appalachian Mountains. The North Georgia Mountains are an area of paradise, forests, rivers and streams, historic ambience, and Southern Charm. At one time virtually the entire mountain range in Northern Georgia was considered to be Cherokee Land. The Cherokee farmed the valleys and hunted in the mountains, and called it “The Enchanted Land”.

Life is different here. A climate that offers four distinct seasons, giving beautiful spring flowers, summers of tremendous outdoor activities, falls with stunning colors of foliage, harvest festivals and craft fairs will be at every turn,  and winters with a few days of beautiful white snow. Find a front porch and a rocking chair: listen to the crickets sing at night. Look up at the stars like you haven’t seen them before. Come and see what life is like in the mountains. Come and make yourself at home.
