Fun Things To Do For Valentine’s Day in Dahlonega

Next, fill your weekend with fun activities to make the most of your time in Dahlonega. We suggest:

Wine Tastings

Dahlonega is known as Georgia’s very own wine country and it would be a shame to skip out on this delicious adventure while you’re in the area, so while you’re here, pick a few to visit or try them all – here’s a full list that you can choose from!

Our favorites include: Montaluce, Wolf Mountain and Cavender Creek, but you truly can’t go wrong with whichever vineyard you choose.

Most wineries in the area are open daily and typically draw a crowd, especially on weekends, so if you want to level up the experience, you can book a luxurious 6 hour wine tour where you’ll visit 4 famous wineries, receive lunch and a scheduled itinerary with pick up and drop off times to make planning easy!

Spa Services

Surprise your sweetie with a relaxing spa service at one of Dahlonega’s surrounding spas where you can be pampered and soak in precious time with one another in a soothing environment.

Mountain Laurel Creek provides wonderful spa amenities right in the heart of Dahlonega, Serenity in the Mountains is a Blue Ridge favorite or you can venture about an hour south to Avalon in Alpharetta, GA to experience the luxurious Woodhouse Spa.

Souvenir Shopping

Lastly, to commemorate your getaway, stop into one of Dahlonega’s local shops to grab a souvenir or two before you head home!

Step into nostalgia at Dahlonega’s General Store and grab a one of a kind item to take back home. Choose from local jams, jellies and unique hot sauces or take your pick of fun toys to take back to the little ones. 

If you’re searching for the perfect t-shirt or mug, pay a visit to Dahlonega Goods (sister store of Dress Up Dahlonega) to grab the cutest mountain town merch!

Or if you want something a bit more general, yet still special to the town, The Humble Abode is a must visit. Here you’ll find exclusive gift items and home decor pieces that you can easily travel home with!

Soak In Your R & R

If the spa or shopping isn’t your thing and instead you’re due for a long weekend of rest and relaxation, there’s really no better place to soak it in than in the mountains. 

The StayDahlonega properties were created to help you find an escape and enjoy the peace and quiet while also having an experience that you’ll remember forever. 

So, if staying in is your idea of a good time, look no further! Grab a bottle of wine from a local vineyard or wine shop, whip up your favorite at home dish, roast marshmallows and make s’mores for dessert and enjoy the company of your significant other in a serene environment that can’t be beat.

Even though it may seem easier to do the same thing you’ve been doing for years, we encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and hire the sitter, book the trip, pack your bags and enjoy time alone with the one you love most. 

Here’s to your Valentine’s day, week or weekend being filled with all of the balloons, roses, hearts and hugs. 

With love, 

The Stipes ❤️
