Helen Overview

Less than two-hour drive from downtown Atlanta sits the town of Helen. What makes the little town so special and attracts visitors all year around is not only the beautiful mountainous range and fabulous rivers, but also its re-creation of Bavarian-style community. The main road is lined with colorful specialty shops and restaurants, both European and American. From leather and antique shops to glass-work and chocolate shops, everything is there. Horse-drawn carriages highlight the re-creation of an alpine village.

Helen offers European taste in their restaurants, from German schnitzel to a wide variety of beer. Visitors can dine outside by the river that streams victoriously down the hill. The place is also great for outdoor activities like river tubing, horseback riding, and canoeing. There are many festivals in Helen, especially during popular holidays and holiday season like Oktoberfest, Christmas, and Fourth of July. However, any day is a perfect day to visit Helen.
