5 Romantic Date Spots In Helen GA

We love to say that Helen is for lovers, and for good reason. There are few vacation destinations so chock-full of activities for romantics! Visit romantic date spots in Helen Ga! The combination of natural beauty and old-world rustic charm are absolutely unmatched in the Southeastern US, not to mention the rest of the country.

Nestled in the foothills at a junction between yesterday and tomorrow, Helen brings old-world pleasures to life which are quickly vanishing from the world. Our architecture harkens back to 19th Century Bavaria, bringing the romance of the Alpines to America’s back yard.

Plenty of visitors get all the romantic inspiration they need, simply from wandering our streets and multitude of riverside dining options. However, Helen is full of special attractions which are perfect for lovers because, in Helen, just about anything can happen!

I. See The Mountains From Above

Opinions will vary, of course, but there may be no more romantic view of Helen and the spectacular American wilderness than from the skies, in one of our famous hot-air balloons!

With Balloons Over Georgia, or any of our other aerialists, you can take a thrilling and soul-stirring ride over some of the most beautiful mountain country in America. On a clear day, you can sometimes see straight from Helen, in the foothills, all the way to Atlanta and even to the coast!

Take along a small basket of goodies and some amazing Helen wine (see below!) and you can have an adventure with your lover that you’ll never forget! Come at the right time of year, and you could even experience one of Helen’s world-famous air races!

II – Horse-Drawn Nature Tours

Helen is about preserving the best of the old world, nestled within the new. Alpine Carriages exemplifies this with their wonderfully romantic offerings, straight out of the pages of novels past.

From informative tours on local history, to pure nature explorations with great picnic opportunities, you can experience a blend of nature and convenience that’s rapidly vanishing from the world today.

And if you choose to visit Helen in the winter… Alpine Carriages offer sleigh-rides instead. Have you ever celebrated Christmas in an actual sleigh with bells on, like in the songs? It can happen in Helen.

III – Wine-Tastingswine

Is any drink more closely-associated with love and romance than wine? North Georgia has recently been putting itself on the wine-making map, thanks to a clay-heavy soil composition that’s nearly unique in the United States… but almost exactly matches some of the best wine-making country in France.

As you wind your way around the Appalachian foothills, you can stumble upon many of our fine local wineries, such as The Three Sisters, noted widely for their world-class and frequently award-winning bottles.

Even better, unlike many of the pleasures of Helen, you’re welcome and encouraged to bring the wine home to enjoy later, over future romantic dinners…

IV – A Windmill With A View

One of the most iconic features of the charming Helen downtown is The Heidi Windmill, frequently photographed by visitors from around the world. What many don’t realize is that there’s a Queen Suite inside the windmill, and it could be yours for a night.

It’s an experience you can find few others places in the world, and one you’ll never forget. Even if it’s merely for a single evening of romance, this is yet another old world pleasure that can still happen in Helen.

V – Your Very Own Cabin In The WoodsDestiny cabin living

Why go out at all? If you’re truly looking to get away from it all with your special someone, what could be better than the two of you, a fire-lit cabin, and the wonders of America’s natural beauty?

When you stay in a Helen cabin, you’re staying in luxury. Despite their rustically charming wood-and-stone exterior, inside is nothing but modern convenience: Fully powered and plumbed, with TV and WiFi, as well as furnishings fit for a King and Queen.

And on the outside? Grilling facilities, a barbecue pit, trees, mountains, rivers, stars… and possibly even your own hot-tub for enjoying them all at once.

The romantic possibilities are nearly endless…
