Swinging bridge on the North Georgia Canopy Tour, Lula, Georgia.

Northeast Georgia is one of the most interesting states I’ve ever visited! From its natural wonders, to its history, to its unique stops, there’s something for everyone.

I like to pack a little daredevil into each of my trips, if I can, as do many other travelers.

The Northeast Georgia mountains provided me with a chance to take 12 canopy zips through the trees, walk on two swinging bridges, and do a bit of rapelling with North Georgia Canopy Tours.

What scared me the most? That longest darn swinging bridge.

What thrilled me the most? The 695-foot dual zip over the Hilltop Pond.

And what was the easiest? Rapelling. Maybe there’s hope for me as a mountain climber yet (not really!).

Next stop, Toccoa, where I enjoyed the Currahee Military Museum, which is named for the Currahee Mountain WWII training camp located five miles from town.

One of the museum features is, of course, the 17000 men who trained there during the 1940s. However, I found many priceless artifacts going back to the Civil War as well as WWI.

While in Toccoa, I visited the Toccoa Falls College site to see another set of falls—the Toccoa Falls, one of the tallest free falling waterfalls in the Eastern United States.

These impressive falls are 186 feet from top to bottom.

If you stop in Toccoa, check out the recently rebuilt Gate Cottage Restaurant at the College for a tasty lunch, and the gift shop for some local crafts.

I love history, and while the Currahee Military Museum had provided an opportunity to see the past, I also like to experience it.

So, I added a visit to the Crisson Gold Mine to my itinerary.

This gold mine opened waaaaay back in 1847, making it the oldest established gold mine in North Georgia.

A school group was also visiting when I was there, so I got to shake my sluice pan alongside a dozen kids all in search of nuggets. They were surprisingly quiet, intent on taking home some treasure for the day.

There were a couple of whoops, too, when all was said and done, as a couple of them held up what surely had to be gold nuggets!

The site also has a lot of the old mining equipment to view, along with great guides to tell us all about it!

While I certainly hadn’t planned any “additions” to the family, when I realized how close I was to Babyland General Hospital I just had to visit.

Luckily for me, my visit coincided with the grand opening of this new “hospital” for the Cabbage Patch Kids.

My new baby was a girl named Kristianna Trinity. Each baby “born” at Babyland General has a unique name along with adoption papers.

The huge southern mansion is quite an amazing site to visit, even if you don’t have a doll collection or a youngster at home.

With 72 windows all looking outside onto the mountains, there’s a lot of beautiful Georgia countryside to go with the fun and fantasy inside.

Even if you can’t go, have some fun taking a video tour of Northeast Georgia:
