Blue Ridge

  • Coined as Georgia's favorite mountain town, Blue Ridge rests 90 miles north of Atlanta in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Embracing all four seasons, Blue Ridge is simply breathtaking any time of the year. Hike to local waterfalls, whitewater raft down the Ocoee River, ride horseback through tree-covered trails, or rent a boat or kayak. Blue Ridge perfectly partners beauty and adventure in an authentic American town.

    Shop and dine in the quaint mountain town of Blue Ridge. While it may have a small railroad town feel, its shopping and dining are uptown through and through. Enjoy local food and spirits, to include three local breweries, and even plan a day to tour the different micro-breweries and wineries that Blue Ridge is known for.

    The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is a perfect way to view the changes in season and provides special trips throughout the year, like the Santa Express at Christmastime. Finish out your day exploring the vibrant art scene at the Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Center. Regardless how your day looks, one thing is for sure — you won't want to leave.

  • Fly Fishing
    Fannin County is heralded as the Trout Capital of Georgia, and fly fishing in Blue Ridge on the Toccoa River is a can't-miss activity for any serious fisherman. On Blue Ridge Lake, anglers can cast a line for largemouth bass and white bass, along with rainbow trout and walleye.

    Blue Ridge Lake
    On the northeastern shore of Blue Ridge Lake, the Morganton Point Recreational Area is a popular destination for swimming, hiking, boating and fishing. On the northwestern side of the lake, the full-service Lake Blue Ridge Marina rents kayaks, canoes and pontoon boats, as well as paddleboats and paddleboards.

    Suches Loop, Georgia's Dragon
    Fans of the infamous Tail of the Dragon motorcycle highway know the Suches Loop as "Georgia's Dragon." Featuring blind curves, a few switchbacks and a winding drive along Wolf Pen Gap Road, the curviest road in Georgia, the 42-mile route around the base of Blood Mountain proves as challenging as it is scenic.

    Along with the towns of Helen and Dahlonega, Blue Ridge and Morganton form a loop of wineries, vineyards and tasting rooms along the North Georgia Winery Trail.

    Photo Safaris
    From scenic trails to charming towns and wildlife to waterfalls, Georgia's Blue Ridge area and the Chattahoochee National Forest offer outstanding opportunities for professional photographers and selfie-snappers alike.

    Blue Ridge Scenic Railway
    Climb aboard at an historic 1905 train depot and ride the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway over bridges, around bends and along the Toccoa River. The 4-hour round trip includes a layover at McCaysville/Copperhill, a town built on the Georgia-Tennessee state line.

    The Restaurant Scene
    Downtown Blue Ridge may have a small-town feel, but their restaurant scene is nothing short of upscale. Some of our personal favorites are Black Sheep serving up homemade pastas and delicious seafood with a southern flare or Harvest on Main, thriving on local ingredients that are often organic. This restaurant scene is worth exploring.

    Mercier Orchards
    Mercier Orchards offers so much more than your traditional apple picking and cider. Grab breakfast or lunch at their deli, topped off with a homemade apple pastry. Pick up some apple cider for the kids and a hard cider for the adults. Mercier Orchards is a stop you want to make sure you make when visiting Blue Ridge.

    Water Adventure on the Ocoee River
    The Ocoee River is known for its whitewater rafting and was even host to the whitewater slalom events during the Centennial 1996 Summer Olympics. Don't worry, there are whitewater rafting trips for all experience levels, and surely something you don't want to miss while visiting Blue Ridge.
