Fall in Georgia is a beautiful time. The beautiful rainbow of changing leaves, the dropping temperatures, cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything, nights spent by the fire… it’s all quite amazing.

Do you find reprieve in thinking about winter in Georgia so early? Or does it chill you to the bone to think about what will be coming in the next few months? Take a look at the Farmers’ Almanac winter forecast for Georgia: it’s expected to be a year of “Shake! Shiver! Shovel!”

Winter in Georgia

August 26, 2022

What is winter in Georgia like?

Winter in Georgia varies greatly depending on what area of the state you’re in. In some regions, like the south, you can often wear shorts all year long! Farther north, like up in the mountains, you can generally expect to see a bit of snow, though of course not as much as our neighbors farther north. There are plenty of opportunities for winter fun in many of the northern regions of the state, and even some of the central zones occasionally get snow once or twice a season.

What are some of the best winter towns in Georgia?

There’s no shortage of great winter day trips in Georgia – we may not be particularly famous for snow and frigid weather, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of great cozy getaways to take during the colder months. Dahlonega is one of our favorite mountain towns in Peach State, and it’s always filled with beautiful lights and decor to celebrate Christmas each winter.

Are there places to go snow tubing in Georgia?

We love snow tubing in Georgia! It’s a great alternative to skiing and snowboarding, both of which take a little more skill and practice to perfect. Luckily, there are plenty of fantastic places to go snow tubing here. If you’ve never visited Stone Mountain Park in the winter, you’re really missing out. It transforms into Snow Mountain and has so many opportunities for cold weather fun, including snow tubing!
