We’re all in search of the same goals in life. Riches, honor, love, honesty, beauty, good health and the perfect place to see fall foliage in all its glory. You’re on your own for most of that stuff, but I can help you find the best spot for leaf peeping. The Cherohala Skyway is Heaven for Leaf Peepers.
The sun has set on summer. Autumn is upon us with chilly temperatures and earlier sunsets. That’s okay. There are plenty of Hot Times at Margaritaville at Lanier Islands planned for this fall.
Fall festivals bring happy folks together to celebrate the season and to forget that winter is on the way. My favorite is the Gold Rush Days Festival in downtown Dahlonega.
It’s hard to say how big the crowds will be at Don Carter State Park’s 5th Annual Chattahoochee Mountain Music Festival on Saturday, October 20, 2018. You’ll want to be there too, once you see the schedule of performers.
Fall is the prettiest season of all. The leaves strut their stuff before blowing away toward winter. Cooler temperatures remind us that it’s going to get too cold too soon, and we all ask the same question: “Where’s the best leaf peeping this autumn?”
Historians say the first Thanksgiving celebration was held in 1621, after 53 of the pilgrims who endured a trip to the New World on the Mayflower survived their first winter and gave thanks for their survival. You and I are much more fortunate. We don’t have to risk a watery death in a rickety boat ride across the Atlantic and spend a winter outdoors to celebrate with the Thanksgiving Feast at Lanier Islands!
Not everyone has a family as perfect as yours. Sure, your boys make Opie look like a gangster. Your daughters make Anne of Green Gables look like Lady Gaga. You look forward to having all your relatives come to your house for Thanksgiving. For the rest of us? We’re heading to Lanier Islands’ Thanksgiving Feast, because we’re afraid fights will break out at home.
The 2018 Motul Petit Le Mans Races at Road Atlanta will draw crowds from around the world, but few from our own neighborhood. That’s like living in San Francisco and never riding a cable car. Or like living in Denver and never going to the top of Pike’s Peak. Or like living in N’Orleans and never going to Bourbon Street, even for a glass of sweet tea.
You know what they say, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a day, it’s gonna change.” On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, Northeast Georgia was dodging Hurricane Michael. This weekend? Expect perfect weather for Mule Camp Market Fall Festival in downtown Gainesville.
On Wednesday afternoon, October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael crushed portions of the coast of Florida and caused tornadoes in Florida and southern Georgia, before heading toward already ravaged areas in South Carolina and North Carolina.
