RE: need info on Helen Ga.

It is a little town with a lot of shops, and restaurants. There are a few hotels, cabins, and Unicoi Park, which also has lodging. I have stayed at the Holiday Inn in town, and at rented cabins.

Thanksgiving, the leaves will be past prime, but it is still a nice destination.

Best Reuben in town is a little restaurant that overlooks the Chattahoochee river. Has outdoor seating, think it's called the International Cafe, or something like that. Melts in your mouth.

There are also fudge shops with delicious candy and fudge!

I was in Helen about 5 years ago with my family and it is a very quaint town. It is in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. They have set up the town to resemble a village in the Swiss Alps. You can pan for gold, shop, hike. We had a very nice weekend visit and I hope you enjoy it as well. There is alot to do and see enjoy!

I agree. Thanksgiving would be lovely there.

We go to Blairsville ofetn it is about 30 miles from Helen. Great hicking, shopping close by. If you like to flea market ther is one right outside of town also a good one in Murphy N.C. open on Sat and Sun go early. There is some good trout fishing try booking a trip with one of the local guides. Weather will be a little cool at night.

We are interested in going to Helen also and I did a search for Helen and got lots of information as well as requested brochures. This would probably be your best bet - I think one of the sites was the chamber of commerce - always a good source for local information! Enjoy - Vicki/FL
