Your guide to Dahlonega

All About Dahlonega

In 1829, Dahlonega, Georgia, wasn’t just any small mountain town — it was the site of America’s first gold rush. The town even got its name from a Cherokee word meaning the color gold. Today, there are many gold festivals and museums to mark this history — you can even try your hand at digging for gold — while wineries, nature trails, and performing arts venues sit just 90 minutes from the state capital of Atlanta. Located in the heart of the North Georgia Mountains, Dahlonega combines towering waterfalls, lush golf courses, and live music.

While the area’s abundant natural beauty is a major draw, 19th-century architecture, tree-lined sidewalks, and the buzz of students from the University of North Georgia make a case for spending some time in town. Wine lovers head into the verdant hills of Lumpkin County to explore the wealth of vineyards, and families flock to the historic town square for the holiday season, when twinkling lights abound.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Dahlonega

The best months to see the town in its prime are from May to June and August to October. Because of Georgia’s southern location, you can expect humid weather at other times. Cabins in Dahlonega are surrounded by scenic drives throughout the year, with Cane Creek Falls, Dockery Lake, and the Yahoola Valley being especially resplendent in the fall. The holidays are big in Dahlonega — its festive cheer and decked-out balconies make it a popular filming location for TV specials and movies — and family-friendly parades, warming drinks, and homemade treats at the market create a heartwarming atmosphere for locals and visitors alike. Fans of traditional music won’t want to miss Bear on the Square, a celebration of bluegrass that takes place every April.
