::Oktoberfest::


Bucket List #85: Helen, GA Oktoberfest.

Done. And done. 

And it did not disappoint. 
The weather was perfect and the quaint town felt miles and miles away from our busy city. It was somehow both slow and bustling with energy, begging us to live in the moment.

We meandered and enjoyed the festive everything, laughing at the lederhosen and business of it all - it almost felt like Disney world. 



We danced and drank beer and ate the saltiest pretzels I ever did taste. We sat by the river and enjoyed the perfect fall weather. 

We made friends with a lady named Amy who just moved here from Minnesota. She sounded like she was fresh out of Bobby's World, donchtaknow. She told us about her boyfriend who moved south for her after five years of dating. They couldn't resist the money, she said!

And so we learned, we're all friends in Helen, just looking to get down with a little fall happiness.
 At the end of the day, we came home happy. Happy to return to our normal city and happy to know this magical world is only an hour away. 

Thank you, miss Helen, for a lovely day.

  2. Looks and sounds like an amazing weekend! We had an Oktoberfest here recently and it was awesome - mostly because of the funnel cakes LOL

  3. Too funny! My boyfriend's family has a house in Helen, and it's just the quirkiest little town! I've always said it's Gatlinburg-gone-German

  4. I've been there when I used to live in Atlanta. (but not during Oktoberfest!). Such a cute little town tucked away in the mountains of Georgia.
