If you are really into automotive history you may spend at least 45 minutes looking at over 100 years of automotive history.  When you’re done you can head over to the Currahee Military Museum.  This museum is two in one, you have the Currahee Military Museum featuring the Camp Toccoa Airborne division and the Stephens County Historical Society.  The museum will take you about 1.5 hours as you check out the museum in all of its glory.  The museum is located in the old train depot in downtown Toccoa which is also where the welcome center is located. Admission is only $10 but active military and society members can visit for free.

Like hiking?  Well, a visit to Toccoa Falls isn’t going to be much of a hike, but the waterfall is spectacular.  The waterfall itself is as tall as Niagara and the flow depends on the rainfall.  This is a waterfall you definitely want to visit during the different seasons. The waterfall is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College.

Access to the museum is simple, drive straight to the back of the campus and you’ll see the museum a short distance on your right.  Admission to the waterfall is $1 and you’ll take a very short flat walk beside a creek staring at the waterfall the entire time as it gets closer and closer.

Travelers Rest is a historic site just outside of town, less than 10 minutes from Miles Through Time. Travelers Rest is a very neat old stagecoach inn and plantation built-in 1815.  The place is preserved beautifully.  You can visit the grounds anytime, but if you want to go through the building you’ll only be able to do that if it is the weekend.  Admission is $5 for a self-guided tour after you watch the educational video that gives you the history of the place.

I’m telling you the history in this town is amazing, all you have to do is visit one location and your journey will begin.
