3 Places to Eat in North Georgia this Fall

Fall is in the air. Sunny, cool days and crisp, chilly nights let us know that the seasons are changing and the tree leaves are turning from green to brilliant jewel tones of reds, purples and golds. It may come as a surprise to some that the South actually has seasons, but it does. And in Georgia, the cool weather means that it’s time to break out your jackets and head north to watch the leaves change. What better way to enjoy your trip than with some regional Northeast Georgia cuisine.

Northeast Georgia boasts restaurants that offer deliciously prepared meals that can be enjoyed with a view of the mountains and a beautiful display of autumn leaves. Here are three to explore.
