We Have a Secret…Fall Weekdays are a Great Time to Visit the Mountains of North Georgia

Lucille’s Backyard Early November

Do you find yourself sitting behind your desk at work, looking out the window at the gorgeous fall weather?  Then take a break and head to the mountains of North Georgia!  Weekdays are a great time to take in all the scenery and outdoor activities of the area without the traffic of the weekends.  A scenic drive through our mountains with a few stops at Sautee Nacoochee’s unique local shops, wine tasting rooms or fine local dining will make any weekday feel like a vacation. There’s plenty to see and do during the week and the pace is slow and easy.

During October and early November, Sautee Nacoochee will be decked out in nature’s most beautiful fall reds, golds, oranges and greens, so there’s no better time than the present to book a weekday escape.  The 43rd Annual Oktoberfest in nearby Helen continues daily through October 28, with music, brats, beer and more at the Helen Festhalle. Scenic Hwy 197 is for you if you love fine art, pottery, fly fishing and great dining on a mountain lake. Make sure you spend some time strolling through the Center Galleries at Sautee Nacoochee where the Fiber Fantasy and Fifty Shades of Purple exhibit will be on display daily through November 3rd. You don’t have to travel far to shop, taste, enjoy outdoor hikes and other sports, even do some early holiday shopping while the crowds are at a minimum.

You can also enjoy some “Me” time at the Spa at Lucille’s a with massage, facial, and body scrub for an hour, a half-day or a full day.  Finish off any treatment in the spa’s relaxing whirlpool while enjoying the beautiful fall mountain views. Book for yourself or enjoy a cozy romantic midweek break and surprise that special someone with a gift of Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa.

So you’ve saved some vacation days? See that they’re well spent with a weekday getaway to the beautiful Sautee Nacoochee Valley. Fall foliage will be at its peak color mid October through early November, plenty of time to plan ahead for a few days away from the office. Weekdays in the mountains are a well kept secret!
