Frugal Friday: North Georgia Fall Fun

Fall is upon us, finally! Now is the perfect time to head to North Georgia for some fall fun!  Here is the perfect fall day according to Ends In Style:

Amicalola Falls

Amicalola State Park is located in Dawsonville, GA just up 400.  The Park is open from 7am to 10pm and parking costs $5.00 but if you don't have cash, don't worry, they take cards at the Visitor's Center.  Once you get there, you can head to the top a few different ways; if you have a dog with you, I don't suggest the stairs because they are a metal grating and hurt those little paws.  Take a look at the trail map and you will see a couple more trails up the falls.  If you don't have a pup with you, hit the stairs and get a great butt workout, then coast down the side of the mountain for some great panoramic views.  If you want a longer hike, this is also the site of an Appalachian trailhead, my dad and brother did a 20 mile round trip hike one day, so you can make it as long of a hike as you want!

Uncle Shucks Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch

If Amicalola Falls didn't totally wear you out, check out Uncle Shuck's Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch.  They are open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  Every Friday and Saturday night in October they also have a $13.00 ticket for a Haunted Maze and 2 Regular Mazes.  Click HERE for a $1.00 off coupon!

North Georgia Premium Outlets

Need to fill in your fall wardrobe?  This is the perfect weekend to checkout the North Georgia Premium Outlets while you are in Dawsonville!  We love their Nike Outlet, Saks Off 5th, and many other stores.  Its never a disappointment when we hit this outlet.  Here is a complete list of stores.

Dawsonville Pool Room

After you have run around Dawsonville, you are probably starving, so stop by the Pool Room in Dawsonville.  A great burger joint that is friendly to non beef eaters!  Make sure you order the delicious hand cut fries and GIANT onion rings!

Now go home and take yourself a nice long nap in front of a football game on TV...
