Dillard Vacation Rentals

Dillard Travel Guide

Deep in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the town of Dillard has easy access to the natural beauty of three state parks, as well as its own historic downtown with antique stores, plus award-winning vineyards and plenty of other attractions.

Things to Do in Dillard

Dillard town is brimming with culture, being full of beautiful historic buildings and hotels. If you're a keen antique-shopper, check out Dillard's antique area with entire blocks full of items -- whether you're after quilts, lamps, or mid-century furniture, you're sure to find it here. For a greater sense of history, stop off at the Foxfire museum for an excellent showcase of Appalachian life and culture as it was 150 years ago, with live demonstrations of blacksmithing, woodworking, candle making and more.

For something more active, there are plenty of different hiking trails in town, some leading to incredible waterfalls. Try the easy Becky Branch Falls, the Minnehaha Trail to the Minnehaha waterfall, or the Mud Creek Falls. For panoramic views, take the Bartram Trail to Rabun Bald Summit. Visitors can also ride a horse through the river with a guide from the local stables.

Rafting is popular too, with the Chattooga, Nantahala, Ocoee, and Pigeon rivers all within easy reach -- choose from a variety of rapids or calmer stretches depending on your skill level. Lake or fly fishermen can pick from Lakes Burton, Rabun, and Seed or the Chattooga River, and many miles of streams nearby.

Other activities closeby include touring the local boutique wineries and vineyards, playing golf with a mountain view, and tucking in to a delicious meal at the “original” farm-to-table restaurant in town.
