Outdoors Getaway in the North Georgia Mountains
About an hour's drive from the bustle of Atlanta is one of the best-kept secrets of the South: the North Georgia Mountains, a mecca for outdoorsy types with an abundance of options for hiking, camping, and water sports. Its location at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains makes it a pristine spot for nature lovers, while small mountain towns overflow with character and charm. In addition, a burgeoning wine industry with more than 30 wineries, gives travelers a wonderful new way to enjoy the area. Here's how we recommend making the most of this under-the-radar getaway. (Note: Public transportation is relatively non-existent in this area, so we recommend driving your own car or renting one.) –by Blane Bachelor
