A few weeks ago, we went to explore the history surrounding the first Gold Rush in the United States. It happened in Dahlonega, Georgia! We visited Consolidated Gold Mine, which was a working mine during the gold rush and converted for tourism in the 1980s. They offer a tour of the underground mine & gold/gem panning! Sean (10) takes you inside Consolidated Gold Mine & gives you a little history, just in time for the popular Dahlonega Festival, Gold Rush Days, Oct 20-21. Learn more about Gold Rush Days, here. It’s the perfect time to visit Dahlonega, right as the fall foliage color is peaking! (Soon to come, Expedition Mom Adventure Guide to Consolidated Gold Mines).
