    Best place to buy a cheap Tshirt

    by Talbotsgt Written Oct 6, 2010

    About 8 or 9 years ago this was THE place to take your family to visit all of the small shops and blow an entire day. But now it is a haven for cheap Tshirt shops and trinkets shops run by folks not from that area.

    Unique Suggestions: Look for things to do out of the city of Helen, rafting, horse back riding, or panning for gold or gems in the near by creeks and road side vendors.

    Helen *is* a tourist trap.

    Let's be totally honest. When people from pretty much a 120-mile radius don't have to work, they bring their kids and their cars to this town of 624 people (2004 estimated population), lured by the sausage and sauerkraut lunches with fudge on the side. Everybody has something to sell here; there's even a Wendy's.

    In simpler, more concise wording: if Disney World had a Bavarialand, it would look similar to this. With cars.

    Unique Suggestions: If you do go, remember to buy some fudge to go with the sausage and sauerkraut you've been waiting 45 minutes for.

    Fun Alternatives: If it ain't your thing, just fly to Bavaria. It's a little more expensive, and there's a language barrier, but it's the real thing. With real beer halls.
