Highlights of Lake Rabun
Hall's Boat House
Known as Rabun Boat House but affectionately referred to as Hall's, this locally owned boat house is an long-time institution in the Lake Rabun community. Established in the 1930s, Hall's offers a charming store with everything from boat accessories, to t-shirts, to groceries. The boat house also has a selection of pristine boats for sale and pontoons for rental.
For any last-minute lake needs — from hot dogs for a cook-out to extra fuel for your speed boat — stop in at this Lake Rabun landmark.
Take a step back the the 1950s with a visit to the Tiger Drive-In movie theater. One of the few hundred drive-in theaters left in the country, Tiger Drive-In combines the past with the present. With high-quality projection, outdoor speakers, grass terraces, wi-fi, pre-show music, and an on-site Tiger Drive-In Grill, visitors can kick back, relax, and enjoy an old-school movie going experience.
The drive-in doesn't just offer movies, though. Stop by during the week for fun events like farmer's markets, holiday festivities, and camp outs!
A scenic trail that winds along the banks of Falls Creek just a short distance from Lake Rabun, the Minnehaha Falls are some of the most popular falls in the Northern Georgia Region. The falls cascade down layers of rocks, making for breathtaking views and serenely calm ambient noise. The hike is fairly easy and approachable for all ages. The elevation increases and decreases slowly and subtly and is under a half a mile round trip.
There are several smaller waterfalls sprinkled along the way to Minnehaha Falls, and the luscious Georgia trees and vegetation provide stunning shades of green.
Panther Falls & Angel Falls
If you're looking for a more difficult hike that's equally as stunning, then the Panther and Angel Falls hike is perfect for you. The hike to Panther Falls is a little under 7 miles round-trip, but the views at the end and on the way are well worth it. Panther Falls is much broader than Minnehaha Falls, and flows into a a sandy pool at the bottom, perfect for cooling off after the long hike up.
Angel Falls is on the same trail, but the trailhead kicks off in a different location so the hike is only 1.75 miles. For a shorter hike where you can still catch Panther Falls, try the Angel Falls hike.
