Escape to Blue Ridge

Your Ultimate Mountain Retreat

Nestled among the sprawling beauty of Georgia's mountainous landscape, Blue Ridge beckons you to step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With its breathtaking views, pristine lakes, meandering rivers and streams, and an abundance of hiking trails, this jaw-dropping destination promises an unforgettable escape. Whether you're drawn to the charm of quaint small towns, the allure of local wineries and breweries, the satisfaction of superb dining, or the simple joy of retail therapy, Blue Ridge offers a warm welcome. 

Historically celebrated as a railroad town, Blue Ridge's rich heritage is centered around its depot, a nod to its origins as a summertime haven for those seeking respite in the cooler mountain air and healing mineral waters. Present-day adventurers can take a journey aboard the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, which chugs along to the quaint river town of McCaysville. Here, a stroll across the Toccoa River bridge to Copperhill, Tennessee, is a must-do, merging the joy of exploration with the charm of small-town Americana.
