This beautiful waterfall is 186 feet high and is commonly said to be the highest single drop waterfall east of the Mississippi. Toccoa Falls College encompasses the whole of Toccoa Falls, which is located only a few miles outside of downtown Toccoa.  From the shop, it is just a short walk along the stream to the base of the falls. At 186 feet, Toccoa Falls is 26 feet taller than Niagara Falls.

The 2016 INSP Film "Heritage Falls" featured Toccoa Falls, the first time that a movie has been filmed at this location. The movie also used other places in the City, such as [ash-ling] Book sellers on Doyle Street and Trembly Bald Cabins. Also, the old Stephens County High School basketball court and beautiful Lake Louise was also highlighted in this movie.  The movie premiered at The Historic Ritz Theatre at the Schaefer Center in Downtown Toccoa. It also showed on the INSP network in October.
