I had such a great experience filming in Dahlonega. The city and county representatives are extremely helpful and eager to support film productions in any way possible. It’s pretty remarkable to come to a small, quaint mountain town like this to find such a professional, production ready atmosphere. Not only are you dealing with great people, but you’re also in one of the prettiest areas in Georgia!  I hope to be back soon!

Downtown Dahlonega is a sparkling example of how careful planning, small business support and historic preservation can combine to create a thriving downtown. Its downtown district, art galleries, restored theater and courthouse stand out in North Georgia, making Dahlonega a viable place to do business.
