I spent a couple of weeks of food and sleep deprivation near Dahlonega, GA.  I didn't seem like a vacation at the time, and it still doesn't.
You probably were nearer Cleveland and Gainesville than Dahlonega, which oddly enough has turned into a bit of a tourist spot.  There is a "wine trail" in northern Georgia that is hyped.  The wines actually are "OK" but over priced, IMHO.

I suppose a trip to Augusta in the spring could be a golf vacation

I lived in Augusta, not a fan, though I suppose it has changed a lot.  I think they do play golf there on occasion.

I think I've been back maybe twice since 1964.

That would depend on what day and what time of day/night.  Dahlonega was the town we drove through to get to our destination.
No wine for us.
But northern Georgia is very scenic.

I figured you were in Ranger school, which is near Cleveland, GA, at least the mountain training aspect of it.  Used to be a place there called "Yonah Burger" which was funny.

Yeah, that was it.  You may be right about it being closer to Cleveland, but I had never heard of Cleveland, GA, until you mentioned it.  There's a Cleveland, OK, too.  Heisman winner Billy Vessels was from there.

I remember when I lived there going (with my parents who were visiting) going to Château Élan there by Road Atlanta--owned by the family behind Panoz.

A couple of college-aged twit girls were leading a tour telling us such pearls of wisdom as "the white wines, like, are good with, like, fish... but the, like, red wines, like, are better with steak."

And the wine was terrible. I'd spent decent portions of the previous few years on a little bit different "wine trail", i.e. Napa and Sonoma. North Georgia didn't really do it for me.

Chateau Elan is more akin to Disneyland than a wine place, though some told me their wines are better now.  I've been once and was unimpressed, a long time back.

We hit some places in north Georgia that had decent wines, but they were maybe $10 wines and priced at $20.  Virginia was the same I thought.

And then there is Costco, which is where I buy my wines ....

Oddly enough, when my buddy got married at Buffalo Trace, we found a pretty good little winery on the bourbon trail.

https://www.loversleapwine.com/

We learned that there's a grape varietal grown in the Southeast called Norton used for wine, and it's distinctive but not half bad.

The story of finding this winery (particularly the route traveled to get there) is unsuitable for this thread lol...

There’s also a Cleveland, TN. My wife went to college down there.  Her brother still lives there. Just visited him and his family on the 4th.

Our local school board is starting school on September 8 but also offering an online option to families who prefer that.  Heard that around 600 students have signed up for that so far.

My kids’ private school is starting back the same date with no online options, but with some social distancing precautions and other modifications in place.
