Dahlonega Receives Hospitality Highway Award

August 29, 2018
We are so proud to announce Hospitality Highway won the Governor’s Tourism Award for the Hospitality Highway Farm Trail! We are so thankful to all the 7 of the communities involved and proud of all they have accomplished!
Extending the length of 400, the Hospitality Highway runs from just north of downtown Atlanta to the North Georgia Mountains, linking the seven communities of Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, Cumming, Dawsonville, and Dahlonega. As you travel from one community to another, you’ll discover that, while the road may come to an end, the adventures along the Hospitality Highway are limitless.

The unique partnership has fostered the creation of Georgia’s only Urban to Rural Farm Trail featuring Farm-to-table dining, agritourism destinations, wineries, breweries, and farmers markets. 

Each community showcases the many facets of southern hospitality. As you journey along the Farm Trail you will find that our agrarian roots run deep.
