If you're planning on visiting Georgia or if you're looking for nice places to live, you might want to consider the following small towns.

The Planet Ware website has a list of the best small towns in the state. Here's what some of them are.

1. Dahlonega, GA. The population in this charming mountain town is roughly 7,000.

"Site of the first major U.S. Gold Rush and the Heart of Georgia Wine Country, Dahlonega offers an authentic, mountain getaway only an hour north of Atlanta. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Dahlonega offers expansive mountain vistas, roaring waterfalls and bubbling streams, postcard-worthy wineries, and an abundance of entertainment," their website says.

Their website goes on to say, "Experience historic tours and attractions, stroll our delightful Downtown -- listed on the Historic Register -- adventure through the Chattahoochee National Forest, and enjoy live music, theater, and arts entertainment year-round at venues and seasonal festivals."

2. Helen, GA. The population here is close to 1,000 and is heavily modeled to remind you of Bavaria, Germany!

"A bustling alpine village set against a scenic backdrop of mountains, forests, and river banks, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to the cobblestone streets of Germany’s famed Bamberg or Lindau as colorful shops dot the landscape and the heavenly aroma of authentic German fare takes to the breeze," their website says.

3. Madison, GA. The population here is about 4,000 people.

Their website says, "Plan your holiday in a welcoming place where it’s easy to come together and relax into life’s simple pleasures. Plan your trip to Madison – Georgia’s authentic small town."

"Slow down and reconnect in a town that celebrates community, conservation, and life’s simple pleasures," their website goes on to say.

4. Blue Ridge, GA. The population here lands just over 1,000 people.

Their website says, "Blue Ridge is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, family vacation, mountain vacation home, retirement, or a new location for your business. Blue Ridge was ranked by Southern Living Magazine as one of the 2021 South’s Best Mountain Towns, and 2019 Top Small Mountain Towns for Retirement."

"Sample craft breweries, wineries, surprisingly upscale shops, galleries, and restaurants. Hike to a local waterfall on the Appalachian Trail, tube or kayak the Toccoa or go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River," their website goes on to say.

5. Darien, GA. The population in this charming small town is close to 2,000 people.

"If you love being near water, a mild climate, history, nature, panoramic views, and clean air, with great access to shopping and services, you’ll love what Darien has to offer. We’re just an hour in each direction from Savannah, Georgia, to the north, and Jacksonville, Florida, to the South," their website says.

Those are five small towns that are considered a must-visit in the state of Georgia.
