Leave your city blues behind and travel off the beaten path to the mountains and lakes of northeast Georgia. Meander down Scenic Hwy 197 where you can stop to have a morning biscuit, go fly fishing, shop for handmade arts and crafts, experience fine dining, stay at cozy bed and breakfasts, or camp at Moccasin Creek State Park or nearby Unicoi.

Start in the historic town of Clarkesville where Hwy 197 heads north, or head west from Clayton and enjoy the beauty of Lakes Burton, Lake Rabun and Lake Seed. Regional arts include pottery, painting, stained glass, woodcarving, rustic furniture, and other work by many local artisans. Eat lunch in historic Batesville and dine on the shores of Lake Burton. Trout abound on the beautiful Soque River, and deer roam the woods. Tuck your head on your pillow after a long leisurely day and listen to the sounds of nature. Northeast Georgia's Scenic Highway 197 invites you to enjoy it all.
