Dahlonega Northeast Georgia Mountains

The site of the first gold rush in America, Dahlonega still has working gold operations such as the Consolidated Gold Mines, the Crisson Gold Mines, which has a working stamp mill, as well as a gold museum. Five inviting wineries are also nearby. The downtown square comes alive with performances at the Crimson Moon and the Holly Theatre.
