Helen, GA is quite the quirky town - it's a little German village in the middle of Nowhere, Georgia right at the beginning of the North Georgia mountain range. There's a large river running through the town (great for tubing) and views of the mountains every which way. Every corner is filled with "German" restaurants and "German" shops. It really did make for a great day trip, though.
