Dahlonega Nightlife: 3 Romantic Spots

The charming town of Dahlonega, Georgia is known for many things, from its vineyards to some special Dahlonega Nightlife options. Historically, it was the location of the first United States gold rush, pre-dating the California rush by 20 years. Major wineries have discovered that the gold rich soil of the past is the fertile soil of today, with several vineyards making Dahlonega the heart of the Georgia wine country. The town has also become a hub for the visual and performing arts in the area, offering exhibits, concerts and theater productions throughout the year. Beautiful accommodations are available at the many Dahlonega Bed and Breakfasts, making this a romantic destination as well.
