Visiting Atlanta & Northern Georgia
As fall yields to winter in northern Georgia, you’ll discover a wide range of excellent things to see and do sure to make your visit to the region unforgettable. From Atlanta suburbs like Hapeville and College Park, to some of the outlying cities like Athens, Commerce, and Blairsville, you’ll have much to see in late 2016 and early 2017 across northern Georgia.
Make sure you set aside some time to explore the city of Rome in northern Georgia. Found to the west of Cartersville, and just outside of the Chattahoochee National Forest, Rome is home to the Rocky Mountain Recreation & Public Fishing Area. Georgia’s moderate climate means the fishing is excellent at any time of year.
One of the premier events held in Rome is the annual Rome Wine & Jazz Festival. On November 4th you’ll want to visit the Forrest Place Ballroom near downtown Rome starting at 7 p.m. for an evening of live music, as performed by the Rome Symphony Orchestra, and excellent wine samples.
You can enjoy a fun holiday celebration in Mount Berry, just minutes from nearby Rome. Visit the Krannert Center Ballroom on the campus of Berry College December 1st to 3rd to see a live rendition of A Charlie Brown Christmas. The Berry College Theatre Company will perform this holiday classic each day at 7:30 p.m.
When your visit to northern Georgia has you exploring Atlanta, be sure to check out The Masquerade event venue. Visit on January 30th for the 6th Annual Atlanta Winter Beer Fest. Ideal for adults who enjoy craft brews, the Atlanta Winter Beer Fest combines excellent beer tasting events with live music, and plenty of fun. There are two sessions this year – Session 1 is 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Session 2 is 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
In the far north of Georgia you’ll find Blairsville, another sterling destination. Blairsville yields quick and easy access to Vogel State Park where, on December 10th, you can be part of the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. you and the kids can enjoy hayrides, Christmas caroling, visits with Santa, and it all culminates with the lighting of a 35-foot Blue Spruce.
