Aside from the closing gifts that I produce and sell (and have talked about on AR - www.wevemovedgifts.com), I also write newsletters for tenants in office buildings. Having fall fever myself, I recently wrote an article for one client about some things to do in the north Georgia mountains. I thought it might be fun to share some of the info with you.
Take I-75 to North Georgia for Some Fall Fun
With the fall season upon us, it's a great time to jump on I-75 north to delight in some of the most beautiful sights our lovely state has to offer.
For the real outdoorsmen and women, you’ll definitely want to take in Pigeon Mountain and Cloudland Canyon State Park. At Pigeon Mountian you can go caving, hunting, horseback riding and even hang gliding over the 17,000-acre state property. Perhaps you will prefer rock climbing at Rocktown or hiking the Pocket trail leading to a waterfall and the deepest cave in the world.
Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, Cloudland Canyon State Park — straddling a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek — is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and beautiful vistas. Hardy visitors who hike to the bottom of the gorge will find two waterfalls cascading over the layers of sandstone and shale into pools below.
Now if it’s country music you yearn for, head to Ringold for Bluegrass music. Performers wow audiences at the Ringgold Opry on the second Saturday of each month in the Depot. It makes a perfect evening for the entire family.
Not to be missed is Rock City's Enchanted Garden of Lights. A family tradition, this is the 10th year of this award-winning light extravaganza. Beginning on November 17 and continuing through January 6, more than 25 holiday scenes and nearly a million lights will transform the gardens’ natural daytime splendor into a nocturnal fantasyland.
And for the history buffs, north Georgia is rich in Civil War sights.
The city of LaFayette offers a taste of the south’s timeless heritage with the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and the Gordon-Lee Mansion. And, of course, nearby Kennesaw Mountain is a treasure to be explored.
