|Wondering where to stay when digging that good Georgia
amethyst at Jackson's Crossroads? Here are your options:
|Ya gotta eat, right ? Elberton has a good old Mexican restaurant!
(706) 283-4236 204 Elbert St, Elberton, GA30635
The newer Mexican place (Mi Casa) was good the first night but inedible on the
second night , and this coming from a person that had worked hard all day without
lunch. Real dissapointing so I started back eating at the old restaurant.
,Aside from the Cheap clean Days Inn with rewards points, the main reason I prefer
Elberton is the great Mexican restaurant!
For fast food there is the Dairy Queen, Mcdonalds and the Huddle house.
Granite City Rocks!
But what about Washington?
|The Jackson's Crossroads area is roughly between Tignall and Rayle in Wilkes County. It is equidistant from the two townships but the area has
a Tignall mailing address. The nearest town is Washington but is still 15 miles away. Lately I have been driving to Elberton ( GRANITE CITY )
to stay overnight . Elberton, Georgia is 25 miles away and will take you an extra ten minutes of driving. It is worth it! There are quite a few
good cheap hotels in Elberton. The Day-night is usually $50 after taxes and it decent and reasonably clean : Daynite Inn 925 Elbert St,
Elberton, GA 30635 (706) 283-4221 . A bit nicer and around $70 after tax : the Days inn ( click here to book ) The days inn has a pool
and is right next door to Mcdonalds.
We have free camping at the amethyst mine or you can check out the nearest campground that is 30 miles from the mine and not much
cheaper than the day-night : The nearest campground
