Friday: Historical Tour. From uniforms and medals to weapons and photos, you’ll find intriguing wartime memorabilia at the Currahee Military Museum. The most notable exhibit is a stable that housed the Band of Brothers prior to and after D-Day. Next, head to Camp Toccoa, once used to train paratroopers.

In between or after your fill of local history, munch on sandwiches, salads or pizza at Perk Up Café.
