Though Helen, GA is only a 70-mile drive from Atlanta, upon arriving there for the annual Oktoberfest, you'd think you had somehow crossed the Atlantic, went over the Alps, and into Bavaria!

  2. I hate to say that as close as we are to Helen, and having lived several places in GA, I have never been to Helen. I would love to visit though because I love Germany and would love to enjoy that spirit here. Thanks for hosting!!

  14. Hi Susan,

    I love these photos!! I've heard of Helen, GA, before; I think some of my relatives have visited there. This looks so charming and, as you said, very Bavarian. I'll have to see if I can get my husband to take me since we can't afford to go to Germany right now.

    Thanks so much for hosting Outdoor Wednesday :)
