Two Days Away: Helen, Georgia


Many of the town’s 200 specialty and import shops are family owned and operated, often over multiple generations. One-of-a-kind products are evocative of a cozy existence among the mountains. Though stocked with a mixture of antique treasures and modern-day amenities, these shops have a distinctly old-fashioned feel. Porches and rocking chairs greet guests at most storefronts.
