A trip to Rabun County provides the perfect, easy escape; full of fun and not too far away.  A couple days in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia is available anytime and with little fuss or expense.

Plus, there's so much to do here that you're sure to get plenty of bang for your buck. Check out some of the many family-friendly activities we have to offer, from "thrilling" to "just chilling." And all come with amazing views, smiling faces and plenty of fresh mountain air! This summer, we hope your family will be a part of our family in Rabun County!
