Fall in North Georgia

We are considering a fall trip to the Helen/Clayton area. We've been to the area several times in the summer but never in the fall. We have 3 little guys- all under 6. We are looking for your typical fall family stuff- apple dumplings, pumpkin patches. Can we find these things in this general area? Any other great fall activities to do? Thanks so much for all of your advice.

Both great areas of N. GA. Also like the area around Dahlonega and Blue Ridge. Usually lots of fall festivals and activities at GA State parks-

We also like the Townsend, TN area and exploring the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mts. NP.

I agree with PeachBelle on staying in Blue Ridge. Ellijay is apple capital of Ga. You have the railroad there for the young ones. What kid don't like a train whistle.

Ellijay has the apple festival in October. There is also the fall mountain fair in Hiawassee in October. They have rides for the kiddies and things for the adults. Do a google-Ga. Mountain Fair.

I think Blairsville also has some type of festival in October. All these are close to Blue Ridge.
