Dahlonega Featured in Where to Retire Magazine
Vibrant downtown makes Dahlonega destination for live, work, play
With a charming and walkable downtown, first-rate restaurants and unique shops featuring the best of Southern Appalachian hospitality, downtown Dahlonega is a top destination in the Southeastern United States, an ideal neighborhood for both young families and empty nesters and fosters a supportive and thriving economic climate.
to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said many relocating retirees choose
a destination with an energized, bustling heart. “The growing Main Street
movement has spurred hundreds of cities across the country to preserve,
renovate and reinvigorate their central hubs. They’ve become retro chic
gathering spots, with a host of independent shops and restaurants that
help fashion the locale’s personality. These eight featured cities, including
Dahlonega, have won the Great American Main Street Award in past years,
and they continue to attract new residents with their vibrant downtowns,”
Historic Downtown Dahlonega is a unique and active town center.

They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
