Wolves! This is your chance to see one of nature’s most elusive creatures up-close during North Georgia Zoo’s Winter Wolf Experience. Learn about habits of the wolves from their trainers, then meet and interact with one or two. You’ll have great photo ops too!

Reconnecting with friends at Pizza Night
. Okay, you can do this any Monday night at Nacoochee Vallage Tavern & Pizzeria, but post-holidays is a great time to kick back with friends and share a pie or two (Buy one 12-inch pizza and get one free!) The laid-back attitude here is inviting and the pizzas are superb.

Visit New Year’s Day and you can join the First Day Hikes at Smithgall Woods State Park or Unicoi State Park. Both are led by an Interpretive Ranger and are2 to 2½-miles long.
