Blue Ridge Country - May/June 2015 - 55
Small Town CHARM
BLUE RIDGE, GEORGIA, don't wait until school is out
to enjoy a family vacation. Blue Ridge, Georgia, has
something for every member of the family and is the
perfect place for a pre-summer weekend getaway.
Take the kids to the Spring Arts in the Park Festival
May 23 and 24, where they will enjoy crafts, artist
demonstrations, and mountain music. And for the
adults, check out Blue Ridge's own nano brewery,
Grumpy Old Men. Take a tour and taste their brews
while enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. You
may even see co-owner Chipley McKnight in his kilt
playing the bag pipes during the tasting.
1. For 39 years, the Blue Ridge
Mountains Arts Association has provided a unique art experience through
Spring Arts in the Park in downtown
Blue Ridge. The whole family will
enjoy over 185 fine arts, crafts and
food booths, and special activities for
kids of all ages.
2. Steve Weber and Chipley McKnight
opened the nano brewery, Grumpy
Old Men, with a simple mission:
If they don't like it, they don't drink it.
If they don't like it, they don't sell it.
After all of the family-friendly excitement, relax and
recharge at one of 140 cabins in and around Blue Ridge.
In addition to panoramic mountain views, the cabins
feature a wide range of amenities, such as outdoor fireplaces, hot tubs, home theaters, and more. Experienced
agents at Escape to Blue Ridge can help you find the
perfect spot for your pre-summer getaway.
