The beautiful 19th-century Downtown offers many attractions, from shops, music venues, and restaurants, to galleries, and not least the famous Gold Museum.

Dahlonega—a great year-round vacation destination

Dahlonega has a humid, mild, subtropical climate with no dry season. There is always a chance of rain and summers are hot and humid with thunderstorms, and with temperatures averaging 84°F. Luckily, there’s plenty to keep the whole family occupied both indoors and out, in all seasons. This all-year vacation destination is just as fascinating and spectacular in winter as it is in summer. Winters tend to be mild and temperatures rarely fall much below freezing, so there are still plenty of opportunities to get into the great outdoors, especially in the fall when the woods are ablaze with color.

The gateway to the Appalachians in Dahlonega

Dahlonega is perfectly situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are spectacular walks and drives through the Appalachians in all seasons. There are impressive waterfalls and rivers, with an abundance of fish and other wildlife, including deer, wild turkey, and the usually friendly black bear—although there are rules and visitors are encouraged not to get too friendly! However, if you prefer your wildlife in tamer surroundings, you can always take a trip to the zoo or the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve, where children can come into close contact with many exciting and friendly animals.
