I love Cleveland because it is a close knit community, everyone is welcoming and friendly. Sometimes it can be to small and there is not too much to do, but if you love being outdoors it is the place for you. There are plenty of hiking trails in and around Cleveland letting you enjoy a nice sunny day. Mt. Yonah is one of my favorites, the picture opportunities are breathtaking. Helen, the town next to Cleveland, is only a short 5 minute drive and has plenty activities to do with your friends and family. Cleveland is right near Dahlonega and Gainesville, providing easy access to plenty of fun things to do.Sports are taken very seriously in town and the Friday night football games are always full of life and school pride.

A quite friendly town. The neighboring town, Helen, has many tourist attractions. I love Cleveland because of all the great hiking locations! It has a beautiful mountain scenery as well.
There are many in GA that want to move to the mountains, but the #1 hindrance, typically, is availability of jobs. It is possible to mitigate those issues with Cleveland's proximity to Gainesville. While you likely won't be deep in the mountains, if you live in Cleveland, you can be 20-45 minutes from work in Gainesville, and still be in a small town right on the edge of the mountains, with plenty of access to all things mountain life.
