Georgia is filled with stunning small towns across the state, destinations that offer a quiet beauty by letting the natural scenery, friendly atmosphere and unique attractions shine bright enough to draw you in and experience something you may not get in a bigger, bustling city.

According to a list compiled by AFAR, the "most charming small town" in all of Georgia is Dahlonega, praised for its selection of wineries, waterfalls, and the "chance to strike it rich" by panning for gold.

Here's what the site had to say about the most charming small town in the state:

"If the picturesque streets of this north Georgia town look familiar, you may be a closet Hallmark fan; the 2016 rom-com hit Christmas in Homestead was filmed here. While the town of 6,654 goes all out at the holidays with its six-week Old Fashioned Christmas celebration, it's a year-round destination thanks to its fascinating gold rush heritage and its proximity to the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, about 20 miles away. Make the rounds to the tasting rooms of local wineries (Cavender Creek, Accent Cellars, Wolf Mountain); pan for your retirement at the Consolidated Gold Mine or Dahlonega Gold Museum; or spend an afternoon scouting area waterfalls. The 729-foot cascade in Amicalola State Park is particularly memorable — not to mention the tallest falls in the state."
