What is the most unique town in Georgia?
This town is not only filled with Georgia history, but it also is as unique as it gets. People come from all over the country to check out the small town of Alpine Helen. With a population of fewer than 1,000 residents, this mountain town has sure garnered quite the attention over the years. Whether you’re visiting for the famed Oktoberfest celebration or looking to tube the Chattahoochee, come explore the most unique town of Alpine Helen, Georgia.
Where is the best place to live in Georgia?
Out of all of the historic towns in Georgia, the most beautiful towns, and the most populated towns, which of these is considered the best place to live?! While this question may be a bit subjective, we have a list of some of the safest and most peaceful places to live in Georgia with data to prove it. Also, we recommend checking out the more rural places in Georgia, too. As much fun as the skyscrapers can be, these rural spots are charming and well worth the visit.
Are there any beach towns in Georgia?
Absolutely! Out of all of the places to visit in Georgia, the beach towns are some of the most coveted spots. We’re lucky to live in a state that has coastal access because there is nothing quite like setting up shop for the weekend on one of the barrier islands and dipping your toes in the Atlantic. We recommend visiting Tybee Island, which is usually covered in seashells, or taking a trip to St. Simons Island, one of the best small towns in the country.
