Toccoa Falls

Reviewed By RMDMarshall - Clarkesville, Georgia

We were on our way to Wal Mart in Toccoa Georgia and had passed the sign for Toccoa Falls several times since we moved here. This time, we decided to turn around and go back to see what it was all about. We wound our way through Toccoa Falls College to the Gift Shop entry for the Falls. The admission was only $1.00, each since we are seniors and followed the greeter’s directions to the Falls. The walk winds along a beautiful creek with rapids for a flat quarter of a mile to the most spectacular waterfall we have seen. The broad walkway is nicely paved with a tiny gravel making for a pathway most everyone can traverse. Higher than Niagra, Toccoa Falls comes over a large eroded arc complete with spray! In 1977, there had been a disaster here when the dam above, broke and flooded the homes in the vale where a number of residents died. There was a beautiful memorial commemorating the event listing the names of those who were killed. Park type benches are available to sit down and enjoy the sounds and sights in this wonderful setting! We found our stop restful and worthwhile and highly recommend it to everyone!

You enter at the train station and the tourist center. Talk to the folks behind the counter and you will get a quick bit of history and maybe a short preview. The space is about 14,000 square feet and personally I found it quite engaging. We did have someone share some information with us and you can call ahead to see if there might be someone available to take you through but you can go through on your own. There is a lot to see so plan at least an hour. They told us about the local history ( that is in the first smaller section) and let us wander. Free admission for active military. $10 for adult admission is well worth it. Definitely a must see in Toccoa

Currahee Vineyard and Winery

Reviewed By msrbhall - White Springs, Florida

Friendly reception and tasty wines. Despite the fact that they were expecting a large charter bus party, the owner was unhurried and informative. Nice setting, still growing and some construction apparent, but they were very welcoming and accommodating. The "Sunrise" wine with peach notes is very nice!

Travelers Rest Historic Site

Reviewed By travelexplorer27 - Salisbury

Traveler's Rest was built in the middle of Cherokee land. Our pioneers were very brave to build a home during the late 1700's. The main part of this structure was built between 1816 and 1925. It was strategically located along the newly constructed highway over the Appalachian Mountains and operated as an inn for travelers along the road. The structure is a two-story, 90-feet-long and had ten rooms; it also served as a post office. It is built out of wide pine planking and has 6 chimneys. The front porch has 7 rooms on each level with separate entrances. The property also includes recreations of typical outbuildings of the 19th century, including slave quarters. This is a fascinating place to visit. I'm glad I wasn't a pioneer!

Paul Anderson Memorial Park

Reviewed By msrbhall - White Springs, Florida

Lovely park set in a pretty community. Memorial to a hometown hero and Olympic champion. Sweet story behind the park which was facilitated by a 4th grade class who didn't understand why there wasn't something to honor the "Strongest Man in the World".
