Quality of Life

We’re a Family-Focused Community

In economic development, the concept of “quality of life” includes a complex balance of indicators from jobs, education, healthcare, and housing, recreation, arts, culture, and infrastructure. The Development Authority works to improve Lumpkin County’s quality of life to raise the desirability of the community as a destination to attract and retain residents, add revenue, and boost recognition.

Things to Do

From live music, arts, and theater, to local shopping and dining, heritage museums and tours, and seasonal festivals, we invite you to unwind along our trails, on our rivers, in our vineyards, and in our relaxing lodging accommodations. Explore National Forest land and waterfalls, family wildlife excursions to pettings zoos and preserves, or the challenge of hunting geo-cached treasures.

Outdoor Adventures

Recreation and relaxation rank high in discussions about quality of life. Preserving and improving the natural spaces and parks is a great way to “plant the seeds” and grow a sense of community in Lumpkin County.
