Another Amtrak station stop for holiday traveling is the Northeast Georgia mountain city of Toccoa.

This historical draw features memorabilia from that period and stories from Camp Toccoa, which is where more than 18,000 young men trained as paratroopers during the early 1940s.

Cold weather vacationers will love this winter wonderland. Known as the coolest town in North Carolina, it's the highest municipality in the Eastern United States with an elevation of 5,506 feet.

Although the "Autumn at Oz" attraction is primarily open during the summer and fall months, it's interesting to know the Yellow Brick Road and Emerald City are in the vicinity of ample winter sports to try: skiing, skating, tubing, showshoeing and sledding from mid-November to mid-March.
