Hospitality key to draw tourists

Our beautiful mountain communities play host to a variety of activities in the fall, from the Ellijay Apple Festival, Oktoberfest in Helen, Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega and of course my personal favorite, the Dawsonville Moonshine Festival.

Our ability to make anyone and everyone feel welcome is a quality that can give our state a competitive edge in tourism.
