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 was very nice with the exeption of a couple of whiffs of deisel fuel.

Good old fashioned BBQ at great prices... Sit inside or outside on the porch. You order your food at the window, pay, and then they call your name when your grub's ready. BBQ sauce and paper towels are on every table. And of course, you'll find sweet tea here. A southern staple.
Favorite Dish: Sounds weird, but their corn nuggets were AWESOME!!!!!

Small restaurant with above average Italian for the mountains. Great when you want something different from "country style",
Favorite Dish: Eggplant Parmigiana...thinly sliced eggplant baked in a rich marinara sauce.

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.

Favorite thing: 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 Blue Ridge and cheap to.
Fondest memory: I met BoBo Bill the Taz Man who sponcers the North Ga. Sobriety run. He is 18 years clean and sober and devotes his life to helping others recover from drugs and alcohol. I ate at the Village Resturant and it was the best. I rode the bike through the mountains and saw some of the most beautiful mountain country in the world. Clean air, Clean water and beautiful.

Favorite thing: Lake Blue Ridge is a must see. Beautiful crystal clear mountain lake...uncrowded and serene.
Fondest memory: 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.
