My husband and I are heading to the Gainesville, GA area in early April so I can participate in an event at the Piedmont Hotel and visit all the local sites related to General Longstreet. This is our first visit to this area, other than driving through once several years ago. I would welcome any suggestions for restaurants or things to see and do. We are staying at a B&B near Clarkesville. We plan to visit as many waterfalls as we can. Is Helen, GA worth a side trip? I will appreciate any feedback.
