You’re a mere 90 miles north of Atlanta, but can easily feel transported to another world. The tranquility of Blue Ridge is punctuated by the natural beauty of the Chattahoochee National Forest surrounding this charming community. Breathe in the mountain air and enjoy hiking, zip-lining, tubing, white water rafting, or biking. Families of all ages also love to visit Mercier Orchards, a U-PICK fruit operation that’s been in business for over 75 years. You must take time for a journey on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway; the four hour, 26 mile heritage train ride makes you feel like a part of living history!
Local foodies eat up the eclectic mix of restaurants in Blue Ridge from homemade pizza and pastas at Masseria to must-try barbeque at Blue Smoke. A stroll downtown for antiquing and a pop into Huck’s General Store for nostalgic candy and sodas, handmade soaps, and unique gifts is always time well spent.View Listings
