What activities will be available for crews?

  • Crews are encouraged to create their own itineraries. Helen, GA has a lot to offer, including The Georgia Mountain Coaster, a couple of mini-golf locations, shopping, dining, and other points of interest all around. Nearby Yonah Mountain State Park and Yonah Mountain Trail offers crews hiking and climbing with exceptional summit views. And, of course, there will be a VOA-organized photo Scavenger hunt!
