Jasper, Georgia Things to Do
Jasper, Georgia Things to Do
Nicknamed "The First Mountain City," Jasper is located 50 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. It is also known as the Marble Capital of Georgia. Especially unique is the pink marble as seen at the historic Tate House. Several local attractions draw the interest of sightseers annually.
The city's small town atmosphere lends itself to a friendly, mountain experience with good local restaurants, such as the Woodbridge Inn where Chef Hans Rueffert prepares a daily delight of signature dishes. Taste the local wines of Sharp Mountain Vineyards, golf the links at Big Canoe or Bent Tree, and explore the area's Cherokee heritage.
Just a short drive from Jasper is the town of Talking Rock where you will find antique shops, a historic school house museum and artists' displays.
