If you live almost anywhere when you want to propose marriage to your sweet heart you take her to a nice restaurant and sometime during the most delicious dinner you can afford to pop the question. That is unless you live in the Great Smokey Mountains foothills of northeast Georgia. Then you take her to “Toccoa Falls” and on the bank of the fall’s lagoon you say to her in your most romantic tone of voice “will you marry me”. How long this tradition has been around, at this point, is unknown but there are numerous websites with sweetheart stories all starting at Toccoa Falls.

You then stand up and walk away from the table where three computer screens are sitting. It’s the next persons turn to try their hand at the computer flight simulator.

Galveston’s Pleasure Pier
A short and easy ride from Galveston Seaside Resort the Galveston Pleasure Pier welcomes you to a retro version of the old boardwalk, an icon reflecting our idea of what the whole beach experience was and is. Coney Island on the east coast and Santa Cruz on the west coast are two other locations that first come to mind.
