This weekend we are Helen, GA bound for our second annual trip to Oktoberfest in the cutest Alpine village that’s not actually in the Alps.

The fact that this place exists is amazing. They serve beer in boots and have warm pretzels with beer cheese.

It’s also the perfect time of year to catch some beautiful fall colors, and Helen sits right at the base of the Appalachian mountains on the Chattahoochee river.

And did I mention they serve Margaritas in boots, too?

Helen might trump Disney World as the happiest place on Earth.
