July means red, white and blue; stars and stripes; I love America; HOT; sun and fun which means LAKES! We have featured Lake Chatuge in Towns County on our cover. It is one of the many gorgeous lakes in our region. We recently published our Cabin & Cove magazine which includes Lake Burton, Lake Rabun and Seed Lake in Rabun county. For a copy of Cabin & Cove stop in at the Rabun County Chamber of Commerce or the Georgia Mountain Laurel office in Mountain City. Who doesn't love the lakes?

We continue our series featuring the counties we are a part of with Towns County, Georgia this month. From the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds to Brasstown Bald (Georgia's highest mountain) to the eclectic shopping experiences and lake lifestyle... this county has so much to offer visitors. Established in 1856 named for United States lawyer, legislator and politician Georgia W. Towns, the county includes 172 sq miles of which 5.4 sq miles is water. With Highway 76 running right on through to Young Harris with Lake Chatuge on both sides, Hiawassee is a lovely town. Young Harris is home of Young Harris College, a private liberal arts institution endorsed by the United Methodist Church. Young Harris is also the birthplace and home of former Governor Zell Miller. Towns County welcomes you to explore where Georgia meets North Carolina.

We do hope you are enjoying your summer thus far, there is much to see and do in the mountains this month so be sure to check out our calendar of events. We also invite you to discover

Happy Independence Day!
