Visit Toccoa

If you’re visiting Toccoa from out of town you’d probably like to know what else there is to do in the small city.  Never fear Toccoa is packed with neat things to do to make your trip worth. Let’s start with your first stop on the map the Miles Through Time Automotive Museum.

Tons to do in Toccoa!

Miles Through Time is a co-op style automotive museum that is set in a beautifully restored 1939 dealership.  All of the exhibits in the museum belong to different people and it’s constantly changing.  Vehicles are being stored, listed for sale (consignment/for sale by owner) or have been donated for display along with all of the display cabinets, everything inside the cabinets and everything on the walls.  The lounge offers free coffee, rocking chairs and as much automotive literature as you can read. Admission is only $5, but season passes are available for frequent flyers.

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 flow depend 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 self-guided tour after you watch the educational video that gives you the history of the place.
