U.S. 441 Heritage Highway passes through downtown Clarkesville, named in honor of General John C. Clark, the son of the revolutionary hero and governor of Georgia, Elijah Clarke. The downtown is bustling with antiques, art & collectibles shops, dining for all tastes, a theater and other interesting stores. Landmarks in Clarkesville include Grace-Calvary Episcopal Church and the De Soto monument across from the Courthouse.
Moccasin Creek State Park is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the shores of Lake Burton and offers camping, boating, fishing and hiking. Step back in time at the Old Mauldin House, an in-town farmstead. Along Scenic 197, a beautiful and scenic driving route from Clarkesville to Lake Burton, must stops are Mark of the Potter, Burton Emporium and Gallery, the Cottage Garden, and LaPrade's Marina.
