When you think waterfalls, do you think of Georgia? I sure didn’t until I started doing some research about things to do in Georgia. We drive up North a few times a year and I always wonder about different attractions and things to do before we cross the border into another state. When I discovered there is a whole community (and app) focused on the beauty that are the various waterfalls of Georgia, I was pretty excited. I asked in my local mom group and sure enough some of the moms have enjoyed some great road trips to various parts of Georgia to see waterfalls.
Here is a list of must see waterfalls around Georgia.
Dawsonville, Georgia – Amicalola Falls
A popular destination because this is the tallest waterfall in Georgia. Not one to be missed plus for me, having a little company (or a lot) is great. I’m a city girl to the max so secluded is not necessarily my thing.Blue Ridge, Georgia – Fall Branch Falls Blue Ridge is one of those places with lots of things to do. Take a trip off the beaten path the Fall Branch Falls. Another easy walk even though the trails are unpaved.
Helen, Georgia – Anna Ruby Falls
Easy walk, paved path, beautiful landscape and course a waterfall. There are actually two waterfalls here so this one is at the top of our family fun day list.
Atlanta, Georgia – Lullwater Park
Ok city dwellers, while not a majestic waterfall, Lullwater Park on Emory Campus may just be perfect for you and your family. It’s a spillover fall but a fun location for a short hike, a sand play area and exploring an old powerhouse. This is perfect if you are not quite ready to head out to one of the waterfalls further out the city limits.
