Because some of our puppy parents travel a long way to pick up their puppy we thought a little overview of what else is available in our area might be in order. Here are some interesting things to do while you are here as well as places to stay and eat! We have also included some approximate distances and travel times to a few of the cities where our calls originate. Of course we are happy to give you any information that we can if you want to give us a call.
We are conveniently located about 10 minutes off of I-85 N. If you would like to make your puppy pick up trip into a mini vacation there are many interesting things to do in our area. Banks Crossing, located about 12 miles north of us up I-85, has shopping in over 150 stores. There are restaurants and lodging to suit every taste and budget located in close proximity to the outlets, and an Equestrian Center, Atlanta Dragway, and Golf Course, and Camping facilities as well as Bed and Breakfasts, and Funopolis, a fun place for Children and teens is in easy driving distance.
Some of the places at Banks Crossing our puppy parents have stayed at and recommend are

Goldens at Four Oaks.
Clayton and Dillard, Georgia and the North Georgia Mountains is just an hour to the north.
Helen, Georgia ,a town that looks like an alpine Village is about 30 minutes to the north also.We are also about 30 to 45 minutes from both Lake Lanier and Lake Hartwell if fishing and boating are your thing!!
