How to Have an Exciting Labor Day Weekend in the Georgia Mountains

There’s no better way to say farewell to summer than with a trip to Georgia’s mountains! To enjoy the last bits of summer, like never before, spend your Labor Day weekend in the Georgia Mountains. North Georgia is the perfect place to spend the last long weekend of the summer with beautiful mountain views, refreshing wooded trails, and unforgettable moments.

Three Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend in the Georgia Mountains 

Spend a Day on the Toccoa River 

One of the best places to spend a summer day is cooling off in the Toccoa River. Tubing down the river is a favorite summer activity here in the North Georgia Mountains, and it’s easy to see why. This activity is perfect for family and friends to spend quality time together, and it is excellent for all ages. And did we mention the spectacular views to soak up along the way? With so much to see and tons of fun to be had, this is a must for your Labor Day weekend in the Georgia Mountains!  

Explore the Tallulah Gorge Shortline Trail 

At just under three miles long, the Tallulah Gorge Shortline Trail is one of North Georgia’s most beautiful nature trails! The atmosphere is perfect for a stroll or bike ride through Tallulah Gorge State Park paired with the calming shores of the Tallulah River. Formerly a railway, the path is now paved, making it perfect for an array of outdoor activities like walking, running, and biking. One of our favorite things about the path is that it features a suspension bridge that crosses over the Tallulah River to reveal extraordinary views of the area!  

Spend a Day on Lake Rabun 

Of course, it’s not summer without enjoying a day on the lake! So naturally, you’ll want to take some time to soak up the sunshine from the lake. Whether it’s by boat or by kayak, the beauty of Lake Rabun will amaze you! The twists and turns of this 835-acre body of water have something extraordinary everywhere you look. From gorgeous homes to wildlife to scenic views, there’s no better way to enjoy a holiday weekend in the mountains!
