Toccoa Swinging Bridge

Feeling adventurous? Love scenic views? One of north Georgia's most popular destinations is the Toccoa Swinging Bridge. This exciting bridge is only accessible by foot and is the largest of its kind east of the mighty Mississippi river at an astonishing 265 feet long.

One of the most spectacular canyons in all of the nation can be found at Tallulah Gorge State Park.
