Helen Georgia SSR Get Together

Crudawg and I are planning a weekend run to Helen, Georgia July 13, 14 and 15. we are inviting all that want to come and bring their "Rs" to have a fun time just hanging out, talking, eating and just what ever you want to do. THIS IS NOT A RALLY OR CRUISE!!!! Some may want to go on a run, some may not want to do anything but shop in all the shops and go to eating establishments that Helen has to offer. Some may even want to float down the river on an inner tube, this is a very popular exercise in the summer in Helen.
Main thing is, it will be a good time and a great chance to PERMAGRIN with our family of friends!!!!!!!

We love Paul's on the River Steakhouse. Paul's Margarita Deck is behind the main restaurant. They have the biggest free parking in Helen and they have great food, music and you can sit outside under a covered deck next to the river! It will be crowded though. Very popular place. Parking is a big issue in Helen if you are willing to pay. Around 10 bucks. But we can all meet at Paul's Margarita Deck between 4:30 and 5:30 Friday the 13th in the afternoon and just kick back. If anyone gets rowdy, they have a huge bouncer guy! LOL!
This is the one and only plan.(Meg in Carolina suggested it.) Thanks, Meg!

Partial quote from BLUmnM " HUGE car show in Hiawassee, Ga. that same weekend. The moonshine cruise in. We've been several times and have a great time every time we go. 2 years ago we had gathered about 10 SSRs that joined us. Might be something to drive over to see for a day. It usually has 500-600 cars."

Looks promising!

Now THAT looks good, since I'll be staying in Helen anyway and am NOT going to float down the river and NOT a shopper for antiQ stuff, I was wondering what to do.

Could anyone familiar with Helen tell me how close the Sure stay by Best Western is to downtown ? I'm more interested in the proximity to downtown than the quality of the motel.

From what I can tell on Google Maps, it is about walking distance but about an eighth of a mile. If you cross over the bridge over the Chattahoochee River from the Sure Stay Motel, you are in downtown.

Not sure about that one in particular, but the Helendorf is right on the river, and the Heidi Motel is just down the street and next to the bakery.
