Cheap areas to stay in Helen

Transport yourself to a mini Bavaria in the Appalachians for less by choosing cheap Helen hotels. Between the half-timbered buildings, the oompah-echoing taverns, and the foot-stomping beer halls, you can find plenty of bargain stays to pick from in the very center of this Georgian resort. Other options spring up on the snaking Chattahoochee River as it wiggles westwards through the rambunctious water parks and family attractions. Feeling adventurous? Consider going off-radar to the hidden timber cabins that huddle in the spruce forests of the surrounding Unicoi State Park.

Cheap hotels in Helen

You can get into the Oktoberfest vibes with a stay at the half-timbered Baymont by Wyndham. And your beer will come with a side of luxury thanks to that large outdoor pool – set between pockets of pretty Georgian woodland – and 24-hour fitness center. There's a free continental buffet and ample parking waiting for families at the SureStay Hotel, which also has its own indoor pool. The 2.5-star Country Inn & Suites by Radisson is a tad more upscale, touting handy business facilities and larger suites with king-sized beds.

Where to find cheap food in Helen

Chattahoochee Strasse runs from the main heart of town to the rising slopes of the Georgian Appalachians, hosting good old Southern saloons and BBQ eateries as it goes. To really get into the Bavarian spirit that makes Helen hotels such a doozy for families, N Main Street is the place to chow down at night. It's riddled with rollicking beer halls and Alpine ice-cream parlors, all appearing to be lifted straight out of the German mountains. There are other affordable pubs and taverns to be found dotting the riverside to the east and west of the downtown, too.

Cheap things to do in Helen

Simply being in the center of Helen is an amazing experience in itself. This curious town is like nowhere else in Georgia. Its half-timbered homes and Saxon-style architecture, topped with a few charming church spires and infused with the energy of buzzing Bavarian beer bars, is more Berchtesgaden than Appalachia. Once you're done tasting your way through the pretzels there, the mountains await. They rise to the north of town with the Unicoi State Park, which has just minimal entrance fees for vehicles. Once in, you can hike forested trails and wonder at the gorgeous fall colors that come in October. For rainy days, the enchanting Charlemagne's Kingdom packs in recreations of Alpine railroads, not to mention reduced ticket costs for the little ones.

Cheap ways to get around Helen

To bolster those savings made from picking cheap Helen hotels, you can look forward to a trip that might not even require a rental car. That's because this alluring enclave of Germany in Georgia is a tight-knit and pretty place to get around on foot. Once you're in the center, it's all half-cobbled lanes and wide streets lined with taverns and souvenir shops. There are also regular shuttle buses that can take you into the woods of the Unicoi State Park, although simply pulling on the hiking boots and tramping the trails is surely the best way to get there.
