Appropriately, the word Amicalola means "tumbling water" in Cherokee. But this isn't just any old tumbling water -- no, at 729ft, it's the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi. And in 1832, local surveyor William Williamson (great name) declared it "perhaps the greatest in the World" and "the most majestic scene that I have ever witnessed or heard". So, there's that.
Fun fact: A group called the Canyon Climbers Club often meet at Amicalola Falls State Park to scale the tricky series of winding staircases that lead to the top, offering spectacular views of the waterfall along the way.
