Waterfalls are a must-see in Dawsonville, with the Amicalola Falls dropping hundreds of feet into a stunning pool. The waterfall is highest east of the Mississippi. If you’re after an adrenaline rush, check out the whitewater rapids on the Amicalola River Trail or explore on the water with a boat, kayak or canoe. Horseback riding and hiking are also popular in the area round Lake Lanier where nature lovers can venture through miles of backcountry trails, watch for rare bird species, and camp for the night.
After a long day outdoors, make your way to the Moonshine Distillery and see how the famous white lightening was made -- of course, there's the chance to sample it too!
