Helen, Georgia, is turning 100! And, they're having a party

Posted: Updated:
HELEN, Ga. -

Somebody's having a very special birthday this year. Helen, Georgia, is turning the big 1-0-0!

Widely regarded as "Georgia's favorite Alpine Village," Helen is celebrating its centennial benchmark with a string of exciting activities honoring its unique history.  And, Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is giving you a front-row seat!

You may not know, but Helen was revitalized from a remote mountain community in the 1960's to a replica of a quaint Alpine Village located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The scenic site is located about 15 miles from Highway 365/I-985 and an hour-and-a half north of Atlanta via I-85 or GA Hwy. 400.

    Oh, that awful feeling when you think your credit or debit card is safely tucked into your wallet, but it's still shopping. Somebody, somewhere has got your card number and is using it. What if you could turn off that card?
