Blue Ridge Country - July/August 2016 - 5

GEORGIA'S

Small Town CHARM

Blue Ridge

1. The Georgia mountain town of Blue
Ridge was established in 1886, when
the railroad came to town. Today,
Blue Ridge has the same small town
charm, but with upscale shopping
and artsy ambiance.
2. Enjoy a great lunch or dinner at one
of Blue Ridge's wonderful restaurants;
the choices are simply amazing.

BLUE RIDGE, GEORGIA, located 90 miles north of Atlanta,
has become a popular destination for people who want
to get away for a weekend or a week in the foothills of the
Blue Ridge Mountains. This charming Georgia town has
more than 100,000 acres in the Chattahoochee National
Forest, 600 miles of hiking trails and 1,000-plus mountain
cabins and vacation homes for a great escape.
You may never want to leave the cabin, but you
should take the time to explore the authentic mountain
towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville and shop in surprisingly upscale specialty shops and galleries that line
Blue Ridge's Main Street. Take a ride on the Blue Ridge
Scenic Railway and don't miss Mercier Orchards, the
largest orchard in the southeast. Hike to a local waterfall
or the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. At the
end of the day, chill out by the fireplace or enjoy a fabulous dinner at one of Blue Ridge's wonderful restaurants;
the choices of dining spots are simply amazing.
