Blue Ridge Things to Do

    It is a terrific holiday activity for both children and adults. Passengers are greeted at the depot and provided with fresh delicious cookies and hot chocolate. On board, everybody is entertained by Christmas carols, Christmas stories, Santa Claus, elves, etc. Also, everybody gets a beautiful silver bell. Lots of fun!Departures are 10 a.m. and 2...

  • Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

    We checked this out because my toddler is fascinated with trains. The ride is about 30 minutes each way with a stop in a small town for lunch. I'll warn you, there isn't much to do in the small town. It is mostly antique stores that are more like odds and ends. But the ride there is very beautiful. We rode on the open-air train in September and it...

  • USES PRODUCE/MEATS ONLY FROM LOCAL FARMS...

    Had lunch there twice (so far) with my mother. Everything we ordered each time was delightful. Farm fresh. Their food is gourmet quality. The menu is limited for a reason. I'm so impressed with the way their menu is dictated by whatever is in season from their contributing farmers and ranchers. Your veggies, fruit, meat, poultry and even most fish...

  • A Nice Surprise Destination

    We wanted a new place to eat and our GPS didn't list this as an area restaurant, but we chose one named "Blue Orleans Bistro." The GPS lead us straight to Southern Charm and announced we had reached our destination. (But no "Orleans Bistro" in sight)Southern Charm looked good so we went inside. It was charming with old southern atmosphere and cozy...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the early 1900's, visitors from the city journeyed to Blue Ridge by train to enjoy the health resort's pure mineral waters. Today, growing numbers of tourists are coming to historic Blue Ridge and McCaysville to shop for Appalachian arts and crafts, pottery, quilts, antiques, mountain home furnishings, apples, smoked trout-- even hand-made alpaca sweaters and shawls. Artists are attracted to the Georgia mountains because the peace and quiet, misty mountains and clear starry nights provide time, tranquility and inspiration for creating wonderful art, from tradition art and craft to contemporary painting and sculpture.

    Go to the North Ga. Sobriety Run for bikers in recovery from drugs and alcohol. It is held each year on Memorial day week end at the Sugar Creek Music park. There is plenty of RV hook ups and lots of sobriety present each year. Meetings, mountain rides and a lot of fun and fellowship. And you must eat at the Village Resturant. Best dang food in...

  • Lake Blue Ridge is a must see....

    Lake Blue Ridge is a must see. Beautiful crystal clear mountain lake...uncrowded and serene. Blue Ridge and Fannin County is only one hour north of Atlanta, but worlds away. US Forest Service property takes up almost half the county and makes for a very special place.
