Helen, Ga is a quaint little town which was formerly a logging town. The city resurrected itself by becoming a replica of a Bavarian alpine town in the Appalachians, instead of the Alps. This place offers a ton of outdoor activities for all seasons. Alpine food and drink invite you to loose yourself for a day trip getaway. Enjoy a quiet weekend, or a walking tour. Surrounded by natural beauty and wineries.
We visit historical Savannah. A coastal Georgia city, is separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River. It’s known for its manicured parks, horse-drawn carriages, ornate antebellum architecture and southern food. Its cobblestoned historic district is filled with squares and parks like Forsyth Park, shaded by magnolia blossoms and oak trees covered with Spanish moss. The historic district’s architectural landmarks include the Gothic-Revival Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist.
In 1944, 21 Trappist monks departed Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky to found a monastery in the wilderness of rural Georgia. They arrived in Conyers – an unknown place with a small Catholic presence– with the desire to form a new community devoted to God's word.

Together they built the magnificent Abbey Church, a massive concrete structure that took 15 years to complete, as well as many of the other buildings that stand on our grounds today. Guided by faith, they labored out of love for their new home, the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. 

Our day trips allow our guests a wonderful opportunity to visit touring gems located outside the city of Atlanta. Day trips make wonderful Staycations for those who already live here. Tours include round trip transportation and lunch.
