Oktoberfest! I’ve always wanted to celebrate Oktoberfest in Germany. Sure, it may be a time with tons of tourists but it is still an experience that I hope to some day participate in. For now, there is always the Alpine town of Helen in North Georgia. While the Bavarian themed architecture are no comparison to Germany, it’s still a fun place to spend a day drinking beer and eating giant pretzels (I think that is all we have done there).
We ended up spending a beautiful afternoon enjoying the food and festivities with our friends from our last Helen trip. While it is no European getaway vacation, it was still a nice day trip from Atlanta. And yes, order the giant pretzels!
