Around the town of Blue Ridge, GA, miles of rugged wilderness offer endless beauty and natural vistas during all four seasons of the year. The Blue Ridge Mountains, which form a portion of the Appalachian Mountain Range that runs north-south across Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, are a vital part of America's natural heritage. The area's popularity as a summer destination is increasing, partly due to rising interest in close-to-home vacations among Georgia residents, who can appreciate the area's local treasures despite living here all year long. For your stay, find a vacation rental on or close to the parkway, which will make it easy to explore the unforgettable waterfalls, wildflower fields, and wildlife viewing opportunities that are just a hike or horseback ride away.
If you're looking for things to do in and around Blue Ridge, here are a few suggestions:
