43 miles - The state's third most visited city. There is no other town that packs so much charm and so much to do into only 2.1 square miles. The town started as a home to the Cherokee, and then to European settlers who came for the gold and the timber. Today, people come for our Blue Ridge Mountain setting and the Southeast's finest Bavarian Village, sharing a glimpse of Germany right here in Georgia. Quaint hotels, cobblestone walkways, Alpine food and drink invite you to lose yourself for a family getaway, a quiet weekend, or a walking tour. Surrounded by natural beauty, wineries, artisan tours, festivals, and much, much more.
