Denise and I always try to leave a little wiggle room in our road trips just in case, we see something along the way that peeks our interest. Tallulah Point Overlook did just that, the sign outside said “See where Wallenda walked Tallulah Gorge on a high wire. Here, Tallulah Point!” Now, if that ain’t an attention grabber, I don’t know what is!
Tallulah Point Overlook
has everything from postcards to ice cream and everything in-between for the weary traveler. We love to check out little spots like this, you can find some amazing crafts and trust me, there is something for everyone! You could spend a few days here, and not discover everything they have to offer!
Since 1912, we have been offering the traveling public the only free roadside view of the awesome Tallulah Gorge, right from our covered, overlook porch. Once you take in the beauty and grandeur, step into our shop and revisit a time when sodas were in glass bottles and toys were powered by a child’s imagination.
You will find many things to delight your fancy, things that have been delighting people for generations. See our vast collection of reproduction tin toys, nostalgic gifts and souvenirs, mountain playthings, regional books and hiking guides, candles, jewelry, cabin accessories, knives, rustic twig furniture by Don Bundrick, the ever popular Burt’s Bees products, SallyeAnder Homemade Soaps and much more.
Did I fail to mention the beautiful view from here? Come on into the store and stroll around a bit. There is an observation deck and access is free! (My favorite price!)
While we were checking out, the cashier told us to be sure and check out the Tallulah Gorge State Park, just down the road a piece and around a bend or two! You can check out that park here… Georgia State Parks or you can wait a bit and check out my next blog post… I survived the stairs! (Coming Soon!)
P.S. While I am thinking about it, that is a great travel tip. If you want to find the best things to do, just ask a local! Hungry, ask the store clerk where he/she goes for lunch. Avoid the tourist traps and head for the local gems! You will be glad you did!
Tallulah Point Overlook is located at 940 Tallulah Gorge Scenic Loop in Tallulah Falls, GA.
Let me share with you the most important thing I have discovered. Where ever you go, whatever you see, share it with others! Don’t be afraid to stop and smell the roses, to share a smile with a stranger, a meal with friends and build memories together that will last a lifetime!
