Things to Do on Georgia Mountain Getaways

Hiking and Waterfalls

One of the most popular activities for Georgia Mountain getaways is hiking and nature observation. The abundance of waterfalls in the area means that you can plan several hikes throughout the region to view these stunning natural features. Tallulah Gorge State Park is the perfect place to hike and view waterfalls. Another great spot for hiking is Black Rock Mountain State Park.

Horseback Riding

North Georgia horseback riding is another great way to explore the mountains. Trail rides are the perfect way to spend an afternoon as you ride down scenic trails lined by shady trees and beautiful sites. You and your horse will have a grand time making your way across the landscape!

Zip Lining

If you want to put a little bit of adventure in your Georgia Mountain getaways, then going zip lining is the perfect addition to your trip. Head to Sunburst Stables to get your adrenaline pumping on their zip line tours. The tour consists of two miles of cables hung through the forest. You’ll experience the North Georgia Mountains from a whole new perspective as you fly through the treetops and over the landscape of the region. Their goldmine line actually takes you through a cave in total darkness!


The North Georgia Mountains have an important pottery-making heritage. You will find many area pottery studios and shops where you can take home a gorgeous new piece for your home. If you want to get to know a bit about the history, head to the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia.
