Go on an adventure up north to see the Tallulah falls. This is another state park in Georgia that houses an important geographical life force of the state. The dam that was put in place used to provide the majority of the power to the state, but now acts as a supporting actor. With that being said, the best way to experience Tallulah Falls is when the dam operators schedule shut downs to release the full power of the falls, it is a special and therapeutic experience.
