7 Way To Make Memories With Helen GA Vacation Rentals

Can you even remember the last time you actually enjoyed a totally restful and fun family vacation? Our Helen, GA vacation rentals provide the perfect accommodations for your family retreat so that you can spend your entire trip building happy memories, though there are an infinite number of attractions to see and things to do near the Helen, GA vacation rentals, here are seven of our favorites to help get you started on having a blast!

1. Enjoy the Holidays

While this year’s event is over, there’s plenty of time to book a visit to one of our Helen, GA vacation rentals to enjoy the annual Alpine Helen, GA Oktoberfest celebration in 2013. This celebration, which is the largest of its kind in all of the southeast, begins mid September and runs through the end of October, and is not to be missed! Enjoy authentic Bavarian meals served family style in the beloved Festhalle, wet your whistle with a cold brew, and dance the night away to live polka music.

You may still catch our next event on the agenda, which is the Alpine Helen Christmas celebration. With an early snow, you could be dazzled by the gorgeous white icing as it dots the roofs of the Alpine shops, mountain tops, and trees in the area. With or without snow the atmosphere will be predictably magical as the annual lighting of the village occurs on November 23rd. Don’t forget to be on your best behavior -you may run into Santa! On Saturdays and Sundays from November 23rd through December 2nd you can visit Christkindlmarkt which is a traditional German event. Booths will be set up selling unique gifts, decorations, and tasty treats. Lastly, be sure to visit the lodge at Unicoi State Park from November 25th through December 12th to check out the annual Festival of the Trees.

2. Horseback Riding

Whether you’re an old pro or have never tried it, Autumn is the perfect time of year to saddle up with your family and ride through the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Northern Georgia is even more magnificent from above. Balloons Over Georgia will take you and your family on an unforgettable journey across the skies, allowing you to take in spectacular sites from the Atlanta skyline to the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountain ranges and more!
