Explore Dawsonville GA

Piedmont Residential has a community of new homes in Dawsonville GA opening soon. The community, Castleberry Pointe, lies nestled near the North Georgia Mountains and will offer a sense of peace, tranquility and privacy, with only 82 homes. Plus, you’re just a 15 minute drive to Lake Lanier and its 39,000 acres of camping, boating, fishing and swimming, along with beach and park access. Plus, there’s plenty of other attractions that make Dawsonville so appealing to all ages, and fall is a particularly great time.

For example, the weekend before Halloween is when the annual Mountain Moonshine Festival takes place. Dawnsonville has a long history with moonshine. Visitors will see a parade of authentic moonshine-hauling cars and revenue cars. There’s also a swap meet, entertainment, food, arts and crafts, and tours of the Dawsonville Distillery. Today’s moonshine is probably a bit smoother and fancier than your great-grandpappy’s moonshine used to be.

Speaking of moonshine, NASCAR owes its origins to early transport of moonshine and other liquors, so it’s no surprise that you’ll also find the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame in Dawsonville. The museum features vintage cars, trophies and other items related to professional racing and pays homage to local racer Bill Elliott and his contemporaries.

It’s certainly the season for pumpkins and a great place to visit is Bradley’s Pumpkin Patch. This nostalgic bit of Americana offers up a pumpkin patch along with regionally made jams, jellies, and soaps. For even more entertainment, head to Burt’s Farm for pumpkins, as well as gourds, Indian corn, boiled peanuts — a Georgia staple — scenic hayrides, jams and delicious pies. They’re open from the start of September through mid November.

The Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge is a great place to visit year round. However, the Amicalola Falls, the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains, is particularly lovely during the fall. You can get to the falls by hiking up the steps nearby, with plenty of great views and photo ops along the way. Dawsonville is also where you’ll find the southern start (or end, depending on your viewpoint) of the famous Appalachian Trail that starts at Springer Mountain, which is located in the Amicalola Falls State Park.

If you’re looking for something a bit more laid back, there’s always the North Georgia Premium Outlets for a day of shopping. You’ll find great deals on name brands such as Coach, Restoration Hardware, Nike, and more, with 140 stores, a food pavilion, and a children’s play area. You can find discounts ranging from 25 to 65% off.

Finally, if you’re looking for some artwork for your home, be sure to visit Around Back at Rocky’s Place. This creatively named folk art gallery is full of equally creative art from regional, self-taught artists who range from well-known artists to local painters, fabric artists, potters and wood carvers.

This is just a small selection of the many things to do if you purchase one of the new homes in Dawsonville GA.
