Toccoa Falls and an Automotive Museum
Looking for a nice day trip?
Consider visiting Toccoa, GA?
Toccoa is only about an hour from the Atlanta metro, the Athens area and about an hour from Greenville, SC. Even a trip from Charlotte, NC would be an easy day trip and Toccoa sits right at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Waterfalls are beautiful and Toccoa has a great one. Toccoa Falls is actually located on the Toccoa Falls College campus. To reach the waterfall you drive straight to the back of the campus and you will come to a nice bookstore. From here you will be able to actually see the waterfall from your vehicle.
To get up close to the waterfall, access is through the bookstore and admission is about a $1 per person. The walk to the waterfall is just that, it is a very easy, flat gravel path that isn’t very long at all and it follows the small stream that comes from the waterfall itself.
Once you arrive at the base of the waterfall you will be able to see it’s full beauty and explore all over the base of the waterfall. Depending on the amount of rain or the season the flow can be drastically different. Although the waterfall is not very wide it is actually taller than Niagara Falls at 186 Feet with Niagara Falls coming in at 167 Feet. (photo courtesy of Trip Advisor)
Co-op style Automotive Museum
After you’ve gotten your pictures and taken in all you can at the falls, it’s time to pack up and drive 3 miles south into Toccoa. There you will find a new hidden gem that an automotive enthusiast will love. Even if you’re not a huge car fan, but appreciate history you’ll want to visit the Miles Through Time Automotive Museum.
The museum is in a restored 1939 dealership and displays upwards of 40 vehicles at any given time. The museum is a co-op style automotive museum where people can store their vehicles, sell them or donate them. All of the display cabinets and everything inside of them all belongs to different people and because of this the museum constantly changes.
There is a lounge in the museum where you can sit back in some rocking chairs and enjoy an ice-cold glass bottle Coke while reading through all kinds of automotive literature. The museum also always offers free coffee for visitors.
**Miles Through Time has relocated to the Old Clarkesville Mill in Clarkesville, GA.**
