Two hours northeast of Atlanta lies Clayton, an old mountain town with a well-preserved main street and an
assortment of antiques shops, galleries, and restaurants. It’s a fine base to
explore the colorful hardwood trees in adjacent Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest in the lush southern Appalachians. You can visit here as late as the last week
in October and still find the foliage at peak color.
